Paula McMahon

Paula McMahon has just released her new album, “A Lifetime Addiction to the Blues”, in March, 2019 and it is an amazing piece of work. “A Lifetime Addiction to the Blues” (title track written by Chris Turner,) finds Paula, (Vocals, Acoustic, Electric, Percussion) performing live in the studio in collaboration with accomplished friends Chris Turner (Slide Guitar), Jim Finn (drums, percussion, vocals), Charlie Faruglia, (Bass), Mick O’Shea, (drums), Tony Boyd, (drums), Dave Scembi, (Harmonica), and Phil Grove, (Accordion).

Paula brings a lot of soul to her songs including “Believe I’m in Love with You,” “Angie,” and “Walking My Baby.” A drop the mic performance of Bonnie Raitts “Love me like a Man” is awesome. Her overall sound is clean, light and airy, but deep. There is a good mix of both acoustic and electric setups throughout the album, and Chris Turners “Lifetime Subscription to the Blues is brilliant.”

Paula has a lot of depth and is amazingly talented and really qualifies as an old soul. The Musicians featured here are gifted artists and are truly mastering the blues genre.

Her voice and her Acoustic guitar both just speak so clearly and deeply of the blues, but it is light enough to be refreshing. As for fans and new listeners alike, I don’t think Paula and her friends have any fear of being Misunderstood at all with this collaboration, and “Please don’t let me be Misunderstood” leaves no doubt. Paula is so spell binding that you can’t help but keep coming back for more.

Mixed at her own Studio, Twang and Bang and Big Rock Records and brilliantly Mastered at The Wave Ranch this Album is worth a listen
