Alive (with JoeliD)

At a time of global uncertainty, economic crisis and high profile acts of violence, Dublin’s A Band Called Paul and Arizona’s Joel I.D. join voices across the Atlantic once again to create “ALIVE” … an anthem for those who may find they need support on their journey back to mental health, so that we can build ourselves back stronger – not simply exist, but to feel ALIVE.

Written and recorded once again at a distance of 5,000 miles apart, “ALIVE” is a remarkable and unique progression from the hugely successful previous collaborations “Breaking Through” and “I Believe” from the Irish indie rock artist A Band Called Paul and American rapper Joel I.D.

Building in distinct phases, “ALIVE” evolves from a starting point resembling chamber music through a somewhat reflective harmonised vocal swing-jazz development into an exhilarating combination of indie rock and modern dance.

Breaking Through (with JoeliD)

A Band Called Paul and JoeliD are “BREAKING THROUGH” with their trans-Atlantic Indie/Rap collaboration

Written and recorded at a distance of 5,000 miles apart, “Breaking Through” is a first time collaboration between Irish indie artist A Band Called Paul and Arizona-based rapper JoeliD. 

With the clear and focused aim of weaving together our two distinct musical genres to create a new sound, the track infuses A Band Called Paul’s indie edge through its hip hop foundation, driving the predominantly guitar and drum led verses with intricate and percussive rapping from JoeliD.
