Denkler Kino Concert Date Change:
Paul's concert at Denkler Kino in Wurzburg is now on August 8th.  

"WINDS OF FORTUNE"  RELEASED!!!
Paul snuck off-planet during April, May, June and July to record, write and produce his Fourth full-length album: "Winds of Fortune".  You can only get it by contacting Paul and his team of intelligent hamsters directly at a gig, by phone, or by email paulfogartymusic@yahoo.com.au.  Two short samples can be found here: http://www.reverbnation.com/paulfogarty/song/21381355-hole-we-fell-through-sample-winds
and here: http://www.reverbnation.com/paulfogarty/song/21060983-where-is-your-baby-now-sample-winds


German Language Stuff:
Paul Fogarty, der in der Szene der "neue Neil Young" genannte wird, singt sanfte, authentische Songs. Seine Musik zählt zum "New Acoustic Movement", dessen Ursprung weitestgehend in den Stilrichtungen Folk, Pop und Blues liegt. Für Fogarty ist Musik eine Universalsprache und ein wichtiges Medium, um Gefühle und Gedanken auszudrücken. Seine Lieder erzählen vom Leben, den damit verbundenen Höhen und Tiefen und sind durchdrungen von seinem Lebensmotto "Dream and let dream". Der australische Singer-Songwriter und Multi-Instrumentalist begann schon als 15-jähriger, seine ersten Lieder zu schreiben. Er hat mittlerweile 1000 eigene Songs im Repertoire und 3 Alben (JETZT VIER!!!)  veröffentlicht.

"MESSDUNK Made A Believer Out Of Me"
Paul's new alltime favourite concert venue is an erstwhile abandoned Church in the tiny town of Messdunk (popn 40) near Brandenburg in Germany. 


Albums To Die For
Hard copies of all Paul's albums are available from Paul directly. Contact paulfogartymusic@yahoo.com.au to order or enquire about copies of "Stagefright", "Born Naked", and the latest one everyone is waiting for: "Winds of Fortune". Payment is simple and easy through paypal or direct bank deposit. 

Gleis-1 Rocks! 
Saturday night in the middle of seemingly nowhere there emerged a steady stream in twos of threes of keen live music lovers in the town of Waldenburg. They came to Gleis1, the old train station house, to sit in quiet reverence while Paul played two sets of original material on his new guitar, middling ukulele, and aging slide guitar. 
"I couldn't play harmonica," says Paul, "cos somebody ran off with my favourite harmonica and the neck brace a couple weeks ago and I haven't gotten round to buying a new one."
Paul's new Aussie music mate Anthony Davies from Melbourne came along to play a few songs and run over a couple of originals before an attentive crowd. "It was awesome," said Anthony.
"Somebody tried to tell me the history of the town, how it was founded, where the prince lived, what factories there are but I got bored and fell asleep in the middle of the story," said Paul. "But I'm sure it is a fascinating and unique town." 


Two Songs For Crime Series
Paul is standing beside his shoes with excitement after two of his compositions (one original and one co-write) will appear in the TV crime series "Koslowski & Haferkamp"  on ARD channel 1 in Germany in the next couple of months.  

Short Film Song Placement
Paul has every finger and limb crossed that his song "That's Love (A Cruel and Foolish Thing)" will make the final cut in two scenes of a short film by a German director. The song is also set to be arranged with full orchestration for closing credits. More details when they come to hand. The song is also under consideration for a feature film shot in Hollywood, Germany and Spain. 

TV placement a first
Paul's song "Home" will appear in the background of a television series in Germany in the coming months. Paul has no idea what the show is called however, and is too shy to ask. 
Another song Paul has been involved with is also slated to appear in a short film by a German producer. Details to come. 

Concert Footage Surfaces

The link below shows footage of Paul playing his original song "Stranger" from a recent gig
at Cafe Instinkt in St Peter-Ording, north Germany March 2014.

Film producers like Paul's song
Paul is cautiously joyful that one of his recently recorded songs has passed its second level of approval at the offices of a movie production team and stands at least a chance of appearing in said movie when it's released in early 2015. 
"I am pleased but downbeat," said Paul. "The competition is always stiff because you are up against every song ever written."
After thinking about it a little more Paul became depressive and began skipping rope all Sunday night, most of Monday, and into the early hours Tuesday. 


latest CONCERT overview:
"Kafi für Dich = Awesome," says Paul. 
After his recent concert Paul has declared the highest population density of beautiful women, and possibly men, live in or near Kafi für Dich in Zurich, Switzerland. 
"I was by far the least attractive person within three blocks," says Paul. "Even the cook and the homeless guy who wandered past looked mysterious and alluring," Paul says.

The Ben and Sean Show

A few weeks back Paul did a Podcast with the world-reknowned podcast team of Ben & Sean.
Paul would not shut up for about 80 minutes and finally, when Ben and Sean had had enough, they unplugged his Skype line and ended it and went out on the piss. Paul had no idea it was over and kept talking non-stop for another eleven days straight. The first 80 minutes or so of the interview can be found here: http://thebenandseanshow.com/?p=467

Press

Inside Track - The CD Buyers' Guide:

(BREATHE) "A beautiful collection of folk-pop... worth playing every day..."

Beat Magazine, Melbourne:

"Fogarty is a legend in and around Noosa on Queensland's Sunshine Coast."

Konstanz Südkurier:

(Live concert)"Fogarty doesn't need to hide his own material behind the big stars. Songs like the exciting "Jesus Knows", the beautiful "Stagefright" (title song of his second CD) or the bitter-melancholic "Small Town Ways" were highlights in the concert."
