Singled Out: Paul Avion's R U With Me

12/02/2010
.
Today Paul Avion tells us about the title track to his from brand new album "R U With Me," which hits stores next week. Here is the story:

R U With Me was written shortly after returning from the African slums, where I was living and reporting for SPIN Earth.

The song "R U With Me" is actually a prayer, and most of these songs came directly from dreams, sung into a voice memo recorder I keep by my bed. (I've been "writing" songs that way for a number of years, probably just because I'm a light sleeper and have musical dreams.) "Henry Sage" was the dream-song that triggered the idea for a new album. I thought, "Hey, I really like this one," and so started working on a demo in Garageband. I was listening to the White Album a lot during this period so wanted a Beatles-y/George Martin orchestral approach, mixed with a hippy hand-clappy sound.

I liked what I heard in my demo, but quickly realized Garageband wasn't professional enough, so I used some money I'd been saving for the past few years to upgrade my system. It was actually pretty cheap; the software has come a long way. But it enabled me to record everything myself, at home, for the first time, which have me total creative freedom.

R U With Me will be my first nationally released album, something I've been saving and planning for many years, struggling here in LA, so I hope some people like it. It'll be on iTunes, Amazon and a few other places on Dec. 7, 2010.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here! Plus check out the song "Stand Up Be A Man" here and "Henry Sage & Mrs. Wolverton" - here
