Paul Batchelor is an English singer-songwriter who has lived in Germany for 40 years. During that time he has freelanced as an illustrator, paste-up artist, cartoonist, language teacher, copywriter, translator and interpreter in order to fund his passion for music.

As a firm believer in quality over quantity, Paul enjoys the creative freedom this approach affords. Instead of chasing gigs and likes, he has time to explore what really wants to happen. While some songs do indeed pop out, others take far longer to complete – and that’s fine too.

Paul’s new album THE WORLD IS NEW was recorded almost entirely live in the studio, and is his most intimate production to date. That same quest for intimacy permeates his live concerts, making them special occasions for listeners who are willing to let the music touch them.
