Paul Sachs writes lyrical and gritty acoustic/folk songs. Real working man's music with sidewalks and subway dirt thrown in. Born and raised in New York City. Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Springsteen are the songwriters that influenced him, and pushed him into the folk music circles of the city. He was featured in Fast Folk Musical Magazine. One of his songs was eventually selected for inclusion in the Smithsonian Fast Folk collection. Chosen as one of Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's Emerging Artists in 2011. Sachs still lives in NYC, performing in various venues around the city. He has recorded Four independent albums, featuring often raw and seeringly personal songs of life and love on the mean streets. His fingerstyle guitar work and powerful voice combine to create mesmerizing vignettes. His latest CD, "Oil Town" was named one of the top folk albums in 2011 on both the Folk DJ list and Roots Music Report. Sing Out magazine states: "Song after song he creates some lovely melodies. The cuts on "Oil Town" involve those challenged by love, by work, and the struggles created by economic imbalance...This is a keeper, and its excellence grows on you."
