Stepping out from behind the production booth, Paul Roessler has released his album ‘The Turning Of The Bright World’.

A prolific producer and engineer, Paul Roessler has orchestrated songs for Josie Cotton, Eddie Spaghetti & Frank Meyer, Hayley and the Crushers, Tombstones In Their Eyes, CrowJane, and the upcoming records from Harry Cloud and Glitter Wizard. 

“Each song has its own message, even if sometimes that message could never really be explained,” concludes Roessler. “I like those kinds of songs a lot. The music preached to me, and I did my best to deliver what it was saying.”

In his artist career, his first work was an incredible undertaking: a rock opera called ‘The Arc’, written when he was just 16. He transitioned into electropunk, when he joined Screamers as a keyboardist.

His latest opus is right off the heels of his quadruple-double album epic ‘The Drug Years’. ‘The Turning of the Bright World’, however, focuses on melancholia, reflections, and piano leads more so than on previous albums.

On the lead single, ‘Maker’, Roessler says, “It’s such a faux pop song. I have to admit, since The Screamers never recorded anything, some part of me has been trying to make up for it ever since. So this song is a little tip of the hat to them.”
