Rock singer-songwriter Paula Punch releases debut LP ‘Don’t Look Down’

The singer-songwriter of rock and adult contemporary music known as Paula Punch has released her debut LP album, “Don’t Look Down.” The record contains eight original Punch tracks for an approximate total listening time of 30 minutes. Like the rest of Paula Punch’s repertoire, “Don’t Look Down” has been proudly published on the Punch Park independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Driving, grooving, powerful and uplifting, “Don’t Look Down” proves Paula Punch one of the most intriguing rock voices of 2018.

Sydney, Australia’s Paula Punch cites as main artistic influences Ed Kuepper, Joni Mitchell, Eurythmics, Ron Sexsmith, Shawn Colvin, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young.

Recently, I love Sigrid, First Aid Kit and LP,” she notes.

Her own style shares the same passionate, independent spirit which gave rise to names like Tori Amos, Sheryl Crow and Sarah McLachlan, and ultimately, to the now-legendary Lilith Fair of the 1990s. Fans of any of the above will find much to appreciate in “Don’t Look Down.”

Paula Punch’s debut LP showcases her as a varied songwriter, also. Songs on the record range from slow-burners like “Take Me Back” to pop cruisers like “Lucky Girl,” and from rock waltzes like “Watch Over Me” to the finger-snapping title track, “Don’t Look Down,” a radio-ready single which works to exemplify Punch’s album in theme as well as tone.

Paula’s music is personal,” says the Punch Park label of its namesake artist, “yet it talks to women about living a modern life in an urban environment with all the joys and struggles that emanate from the constant juggle.”

Paula Punch, herself, says, “The music has changed my world. I feel like a teenager again – inspired, energized and excited to tell more stories through my songs.”

Paula Punch began her music career in earnest in 2017 and wasted no time in achieving Fifth Place in the ASA Songwriting Competition for her single, “Take Me Back.” Her music is studio produced by Rob Gist (guitarist, Girl Overboard). Her musical creativity spun from her creation of Punch Park, which has been described as “a website dedicated to expressing her creativity through fashion, music and art, and sharing her stories by recording and performing her own songs.”

Don’t Look Down” by Paula Punch is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, singer-songwriter fans.
