Paul Bytheway is a unique solo performer from Manchester playing several instruments into loop machines to create his songs. He merges classic harmonies with modern electronic sounds.

Paul is equally comfortable playing guitar, bass, synths or percussion and he uses these skills to create a huge sound. He moves around the genres of Electronica, Chill Out, Soul and Funk with his voice as the common denominator. He has been compared to Alt-J, Prince, Talking Heads and Daft Punk but has a sound and approach that is unique to him.
