Paula standing bio

Paula Standing started penning her own songs in the early 2000's. But recording only began in 2013 after teaching herself guitar. Swayed by the greats, EmmyLou Harris, Gillian Welch, John Prine and Joni Mitchell, Paula was drawn to the world of ballads with a dark underlay belying her innocent features.

“Paula Standing is capable of creating and performing music that connects to a listener’s emotion.” Anthony Vawser

…intensely personal songs, working through life’s experiences, and that always makes a listening experience bittersweet. Mostly, it’s wonderful.” Alex Wheaton, dB Magazine

“Paula Standing opened the show and proceeded to entertain us with her well written original works, sung with a sweet, compelling voice, and accompanied by her more than competent guitar playing.” Gary Brown, Out and About

Following redundancy in 2013 Paula fell head long into a full time music career, even taking the time to study Music Business. Releasing a new single ‘Running Away’ in 2014, marked a turning point. This collaboration with other musicians produced a new direction for her as a solo artist. In 2015, Paula began recording new material, adding layers of local talent to produce an extraordinary new album, ‘All Fun & Games’.

Don’t be fooled by the title, somebody really does ‘lose an eye’. 

After a year of hard slog, Paula released the exciting EP Good Heart in 2017.  Offering six brand new songs with a video release of ‘Pity Me'.  Plus a secret bonus track of a previously released single 'I Tried To Write A Christmas Song'.  The intent listener will hear all the layers of these tales and feel the full sting.

A further three songs released on a short EP 'Taking It Well' in November 2018 continues to delve into the many dark facets of our society.  However grim this may sound, the melodies leave you with a guilty pleasure.

A new EP Truth & Trickery, sporting six new tracks, is due for release April 2019.
