Paul Sachs (from the album Full Detroit available as a self-release)
The image of a Folk singer is sketched into our minds….a bare stage, one human and one guitar captured in a single light, standing or sitting and speaking truths with each strum. The long answer to the question of what is the sound of a Folk Singer is located within the purity of the role, the ability to tell a tale as both confidant and teacher with musical backing intricately woven around the stories with subtle elegance. The short answer is Full Detroit, the recent release from Paul Sachs. Found in the capital of Folk music, New York City-based songwriter Paul Sachs goes Full Detroit on the album, the title track walking through abandoned streets and desolated neighborhoods littered with the wreckage of human kindness.
Wondering whether the Irish tales of his heritage were completely true, Paul Sachs whispers “Family Secrets” on gently fingerpicking and violin swells, utters “Foxhole Prayer” on stern note patterns, finds peace and love in “The Good Bad Luck Brings”, and joins neighbors in piecing together the story of “Hit and Run”. A Tex Mex soundtrack is the backdrop for the advice of “People Are a Lot of Work” as Full Detroit follows childhood steps through an almost-famous life in “Glorious Failure” as Paul Sachs recounts “Old Happiness” with a smile in his words and Country bounce in the beat as he breaks into a grin and a groove for “Beautiful Friend”.
