Alt-rocker Paula Punch releases new single ‘Move Over’

Australian alt-rocker Paula Punch has released her new official single, “Move Over.” The track comes on the heels of her popular December 2018 single, “Tonight,” August 2018 track, “Holy Water,” and her debut LP album, “Don’t Look Down,” which also dropped summer of ’18. Like the rest of her rapidly growing repertoire, “Move Over” has been proudly published on the Punch Park indie label without strings to the corporate music industry. Bluesy, rocking, and featuring a root-pure blend of acoustic and clean electric sounds beneath raw, heartfelt vocals, “Move Over” is the latest example of Paula Punch’s rise skyward .

Sydney’s Paula Punch has cited as influences Annie Lennox, Joni Mitchell, Chrissy Hind, Francoise Hardy, Bob Dylan, Ed Kuepper and Ron Sexsmith. Paula Punch’s style has range, moving from release to release with occasionally startling alacrity, and she has hinted that she expects her body of work after “Don’t Look Down” to shift. If “Move Over” represents this change, it’s one toward classic blues rock more than toward her more ’90s alternative tendencies, as the above roster of legends suggests.

In any case, captained by Punch’s strong, yet unassuming vocals, and backed by poppy bass lines and subtle, ’60s-style organ chords (think Monkees) “Move Over” by Paula Punch showcases her uniquely natural songwriting and tasteful studio production perhaps more than ever.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Move Over,” Paula Punch writes, “It speaks about a woman taking control of her life, and coming into her own power.”

This theme of feminine empowerment is one which runs throughout the Punch catalog. This makes sense, seeing as how Punch writes music organically and often gets inspiration from her own experiences, which happen to run in this vein.

I thought it was too late for me to release my music, but I soon realized that I was the main one stopping me!” writes Punch in a recent press release. “That was a turning point. I am now determined to release and perform my own music whatever. I also felt it was time to help make a cultural change – to be an example that you can make music at any age.”

Punch also sings for her live band, The Fireflys, featuring Robin Gist on electric guitar, Marko Simec on keyboards, Mike Rix on bass and Tim O’Driscoll on drums. The Fireflys will perform at the “Move Over” launch party at Django Camelot 7 February 2019.

Australian singer Paula Punch releases new single ‘Steer My Boat’

The singer-songwriter of contemporary folk known as Paula Punch has released her latest official single, “Steer My Boat.” The track has been proudly published on the Punch Park independent music label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Mellow, melodic and uplifting, “Steer My Boat” is the latest reason for fans of contemporary folk music to take notice of this creative and unique voice from Australia.

Sydney’s Paula Punch has cited as main artistic influences Ed Kuepper, Joni Mitchell, Ron Sexsmith, Fleetwood Mac, LP, Elton John, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Alanis Morissette, Shawn Colvin, and Lucinda Williams. Her own style varies from track to track, but runs from a bouncy Sheryl Crow to a cross between Carole King and Paul Simon. An acoustic writer at heart, Punch populates her studio tracks with spare instrumentation that never sounds intrusive.

Asked to comment on the overall themes of her new “Steer My Boat” single, Paula Punch writes, “It’s a journey ….. speaking from a woman’s perspective about love, freedom, pain, passion, fun, fear, and hope through my life experience.”

“Steer My Boat” is the fifth release from Punch in a flurry of official 2017 drops including “Lucky Girl,” “Run and Hide,” “Watch over Me,” and “Match.” These popular singles, as well as the rumored upcoming EP album, have all appeared with global distribution under the Punch Park umbrella.

Paula Punch first began performing in the Philharmonic Motet Choir before she started fronting university bands, eventually settling into a career as a session singer. Her success led her to provide backing vocals for Ed Kuepper and recording some of her own originals with husband Phil Punch and Matt Fell. She has since embarked on live performances of her solo material including a string of opening spots for Ed Kuepper.

She is the founder of female singer-songwriter shows at which local Sydney acts perform under the collective banner, the Friday Girls.

Paula Punch now collaborates with guitarist and recording engineer/producer Rob Gist to bring her songs to life, with some music recorded at Electric Avenue Studios.

“Steer My Boat” by Paula Punch is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music stores now. Get in early, contemporary folk music fans.
