Paul Brill, NYC based singer-songwriter, first began making music at age 16, and writing and recording songs on his four-track home studio. In 1993, he left the East Coast for California, forming his first band, the much acclaimed Envelope. Envelope toured internationally for a number of years, playing hundreds of shows. Eventually, Paul and Envelope found themselves at the center of the oft-heralded major label bidding war. Unfortunately for Envelope's legions of fans across the country, band turmoil coupled with the various mergers within the music industry led to the shelving of Envelope demos that circulated within the A&R community and the end of the band. Now, four years later, Paul Brill has returned solo, with his latest recording, Halve the Light. The album fuses Brill's folk-rock and pop influences. Like his contemporaries Ryan Adams and Wilco, Brill distills the essence of alternative country and transcends it at the same time, creating music that is soulful and rooted in Americana.
