Leading a new generation of soulful crooners, Paul Loren is a singer, songwriter, producer and consummate entertainer.
A native New Yorker, Loren was raised on the rich legacy of soul, classic pop, and the Great American Songbook and in those musical idioms he feels most at home. Taking elements from early R&B, jazz, and Brill Building pop, he crafts his music with an ear towards timelessness.
“I started singing at 3 years old along with the little 45rpm records my mom would play and started playing piano at 4 years old. The voices I remember most and identify with are Ray Charles, Frankie Valli, Sam Cooke, Sinatra, Aretha, Otis, and Tony Bennett. Growing up in New York, Billy Joel was also a big influence.”
Loren recently completed his first headline tour in 2019, also having performed in the past as a support artist for: The Temptations, as part of Stamford’s Summer Concert Series “Wednesday Night Live,” Brendan James, American Idol Winner Taylor Hicks, David Bromberg, and sold out Joe’s Pub at the Public in NYC multiple times. Loren was also selected by Jennifer Lopez to perform at her Birthday Gala in Las Vegas, showcased at The SoHo House NYC, was a featured artist at the AAA Radio Convention in Boulder Colorado, and shared the stage with Paul Shaffer, Queen Latifah, and Christie Brinkley at Target’s launch event for New York Fashion Week.
Loren’s appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon showcased his talents for millions of viewers, with a winning song and viral video to boot. In addition, Loren landed his first television sync recently on NBC’s Mysteries of Laura, performed on the Nationally Syndicated Radio Show America Weekend with Ed Kalegi, has partnered with The Ryan Seacrest Foundation, showcased at the headquarters of the world-renowned Leo Burnett Ad in Chicago, and had the unique honor of performing at the legendary STAX Museum in Memphis Tennessee. While in Memphis, Loren had the rare opportunity to record in the world-renowned Sun Studio in the same room as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so many other pioneers of Rock and Roll. Loren was also a finalist in the “Unsigned Only” singer songwriter competition for 2018.
His debut single “All By Myself ” was supported by radio stations Lighting100 in Nashville, SiriusXM’s The Pulse, WCOO Charleston and KPND Spokane, among others. His follow up single, titled “I Know A Place” premiered on Huffington Post and received rave reviews along with over 200K views in its first week.
Loren’s latest single, “We’ll Be Together Again,” written and recorded at home during the early spring of 2020, continues to be a beacon of hope for those affected by the uncertainty of a tumultuous year. All of the proceeds from the song have been sent to a COVID-19 relief charity. During the pandemic’s first wave, Loren’s weekly online music show, “The Leisure Lounge,” was live streamed from his home in NYC and ran for 15 consecutive weeks, broadcasting to thousands of viewers around the world.
