A couple more projects that Paul’s involved with, worth mentioning…
On March 22nd, Escape Music & Perris Records will launch Frédéric Slama’s latest AOR album “L.A. Darkness”.
Frédéric Slama’s AOR All-Star project is back with album #15, showcasing the darkier & more melodic sides of AOR with the help of top producers Tommy Denander & Paul Sabu. The new AOR album is called “L.A. Darkness” and features some legendary singers like Jeff Scott Soto, Kevin Chalfant, Steve Overland, Jesse Damon, Henry Small, Paul Sabu, Philip Bardowell, Rick Riso, Tommy Funderburk, Sarah & Mélissa & more.
“L.A Darkness” is for fans of the heavier side of AOR in the vein of Survivor, Foreigner, Giant & Toto. Maybe the most Melodic Rock album of all AOR cd’s.
Paul just finished producing Jesse Damon’s new album “Southern Highway”. Keep an eye out when the release date is announced!
Now in 2016, Jesse Damon’s brand new album “Southern Highway” has redefined his sound with a southern blues side while still maintaining to be of the highest caliber continuing to deliver melodic music to the fans. Jesse has just completed and mastered his new album. Produced by Paul Sabu, and it’s described as a melodic driven, southern rockin’ hell of a good time!
Tattoo Rodeo and White Sister‘s own Dennis Churchill Dries released his first solo CD, “I” (Dennis Churchill Dries ‘I’ Released TODAY!) and totally rocked Europe as well as North America in both press and sales… Writing has already begun on his follow-up. Thank you Dennis for getting’ back in the saddle and allowing me to be part of it!
Teri Tims (Teri Tims – New album + Q&AOR Interview) – writing is finished! YEEHAA! I might mention she seems quite happy with the song choices for her upcoming release. I know she’s southern but talk about a slave driver… WOW! Judging by the songs picked, definitely worth the wait! Downbeat for recordings start in a couple weeks.
Elvira. She is a funny talent combo sandwich… produced 3 of her albums and still laugh hysterically when I think back on them… jumped on the charts again this past Halloween with “Haunted House”, from her IMAX film “Haunted Hills”. You Go Girl!
Thank you Frederic Slama and partner Tommy Denander for letting me team up with you guys on your latest AOR Release, “Return To L.A.” (Fireworks Magazine Online 69 – Interview with Frédéric Slama’s AOR.) Frederic, you are a great writer and Tommy, a monster guitarist! Not to mention they included me on the super all-star 2016 release along side artists like Santana, one of my all time favorites, Gary Moore, and melodic rocker Jesse Damon.
You all are the coolest fans a guy could ever have. Last month was first time I ever broke the million mark with 1,200,056 streams in one month. A great feeling to know you’re out there…
Last month, Alexandra Mrozowska of Fireworks Magazine caught up with French musician, songwriter and producer Frédéric Slama, who had recently released his 14th(!!) AOR album “Return To L.A.“.
After a little back and forth of how he [Slama] maintains such frequent high quality of albums, and how the album came to be, the conversation turned to the other contributors of the album and Paul Sabu‘s name came up.
Paul knows exactly what I want (apart from women, money and drugs) so he knows perfectly well what to do to please me in term of arrangements, ideas or sounds. We discussed a lot the direction I wanted to give to ‘Return To L.A’ and after giving him one million dollars he thought all my ideas were pure genius ha! ha! Paul “The Legend” Sabu has worked with everybody from Shania Twain to David Bowie so he can adapt easily, that’s what makes him a top musician & producer.
