Live Videos

Here are some videos of me performing my songs live at either local open mic nights or acoustic showcases in pubs, some might be slightly shortened versions, shortened in order to fit as many songs as possible in a given performance time slot. Most of the songs below are my own songs (if you are interested in video links to my covers too, check out the Past Events, Gigs, Songs section at the bottom of the News Events Gigs Songs page of this site).

Sun 5 July 2015: Well what can I say about this Wellingborough carnival/party weekend? I'm still recovering from the fun, which included being a 60s hippie on the Horseshoe Inn Army of Regulars The Boat That Rocked Carnival float on Saturday, and playing on stage at Wellingborough's Party in the Park 2015 on Sunday. Here's an original song from Sunday:

Thanks to The Horseshoe crowd (especially Deb and Nick for getting me on the float), thanks to the Party in the Park organisers (including Julia, Ben, Phil, and hosts Mark and Liz from Connect fm) and thanks to family, friends and everyone else there who made it a very special weekend. Cheers, Paul.
My 30 minute 6 song set on Sunday, which started around 1:20pm was 4 original songs sandwich by a couple of covers: 1. Happy Pharrell Williams cover, 2. I Worry, 3. Come Back, 4. Mi Amor, 5. Devil Comes A Knocking, 6. Pink Floyd Beyonce cover mash-up Another Brick In The Wall and Crazy In Love

Sun 10 Aug 2014:: Woodfest Auden Acoustic Stage 11:30am, Irchester Country Park. Video of full live 30 minute gig/concert that could've been. Woodfest 2014 ( Irchester Country Park ) might have been cancelled today, Sunday, due to bad weather, but I thought I'd go through the set at home, and the same time, that I would have done on the Auden Acoustic Cave stage 11:30am today had the event not been cancelled. So in true Jim Bowen Bullseye fashion, if the weather had been better, here's what you could've won... a 30 minute solo set of 6 original songs, with some live looping of drums, bass, guitar and vocals, some songs played in a brand new way, with a different sound. Luvly prize that, luvly prize.

Official Music Videos

When recording my first album at home in 2011, I actually video'd the process too, so hopefully some time (the videos need some serious editing), I'll post videos of me actually singing and playing guitar during the recording of the album (and also add Karaoke style lyrics to the video). These videos can then act as a poor man's official music video of each song on the album! This should show that the acoustic album is just me playing guitar and singing at the same time, no multiple layers, and it should help anyone who wants to learn the chords and strum patterns for the songs, or help anyone who just wants to jam or sing along.

Update: In the Private VIP area of my facebook page, for likers only, there are 12 videos of me when I was recording at home the songs for the latest album, with lyrics, Theory Of Everything (solo acoustic).

YouTube

An official YouTube channel has now been set up at www.youtube.com/user/paulstrummersongs

There are more specific video links from certain gigs and performances in the Past Events, Gigs, Songs section at the bottom of the News Events Gigs Songs page of this site.

Please bear in mind that a lot of these performances are live open mic performances. As such I'll use these opportunities to experiment with new cover songs, using trial and error to see which ones work, or simply use them as practice sessions for songs I haven't played much, so the quality wont be the same as for say a featured set where I would put the time in to practice tried and tested songs.
