Title - 'That's Everything'
Artist - Paul Christian

For those not in the know, as youíll soon come to know, and love, Paul Christian has the writing chops to make serious contributions into AAA, Heartland, Acoustic Rock, Contemporary Country, Americana, Roots, straight-ahead Rock íní Roll ... oh, and he can even get all-up-in-your-Beatle-esque memory cells too!

At the center of Paulís various genre leanings (besides his Breedlove Guitars) is a pure songwriter; a clear and convincing storyteller: a 100% dyed-in-the-wool natural talent just aching to become one of your favorites.

A Native son of Chicago, IL, Paul is self-taught musically, learning the ins-and-outs of a veritable myriad of instruments starting at age 13 and patterning his style after hos heroes Alex Lifeson of Rush and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin.

Each track on his just-released American Dream album represents a special milepost along Paulís songwriting highway that will fill you with emotion.

Indeed, if youíre like us, youíll fall in love with your head and your heart. Well, at least the ears on your head and your heart! We know heíll win yours because he won ours.

On what has fast become one of my favorite albums of this year, it opens with the melodic sing-along vibe of the title track 'That's Everything' and backs that up sweetly with the late-'60s rocker 'Just a Dream,' the mid-tempo angst of 'Nobody's Listening,' the laid back '70s rock of 'Memphis Tonight,' and then we get the REM-esque 'It Comes from Us All.'

Next up is the one-two, early-'90s alt-rock bounce of 'Waiting for My Turn' which is followed by lonesome lamenting of a passed loved one within 'The Best Day of My Life, and then a little They Might be Giants homage is found within 'Bicycle Messenger.'

The hauntingly expansive storytelling of 'The Boy' is up next and then we get a little more REM vibe with 'Speak Now,' with the album rounding out on the buoyant duo of 'Worn Answers' and 'Untamed,' closing on the tambourine-imbibed, gentle rocker about the raising of a child, 'My Little One.'
