Paul Roberts

Paul J Roberts is a songwriter and musician from Leicester, UK. He currently performs as a Solo-Acoustic act.​
He has been writing songs for over twenty years, and has now amassed a huge back-catalogue of work spanning genres including mainstream rock, indie rock, and acoustic. Paul’s influences and inspirations include the likes of Bowie, Robert Smith, Suzanne Vega, and Neil Hannon.​
As a songwriter, Paul’s work is varied, ranging from Alternative and Indie vibes, through straight-down-the-middle Rock Anthems, and ending up in Swing and Easy Listening! Paul has a flair for the common-touch with lyrics that are often witty, occasionally bitchy!
As a performer, Paul is gigging constantly, and has supported the likes of The Frank and Walters, and Matthew Logan Vasquez (Delta Spirit).  He has regularly played at charity concerts for causes such as Oxjam Takeover, and Musicians Against Homelessness. In 2018 he made his first ever Festival appearances, at the Glastonbudget Music Festival, and here at the Melton Folk Festival!
2019 is already shaping up to be a memorable year for Paul, in which he will provide support for Mark Morriss (Bluetones), and will make his second appearance at Glastonbudget.
