Since 2013, Gonzaï Records has kept on scouting talent and is now releasing for the first time a vinyl edition of the album "Tears behind the stars" by Paul Winslow, with a vinyl remastered edition that follows a digital release in December 2015.

Paul Winslow's references? Gary Usher, Harry Nilsson, Todd Rundgren and Brian Eno. Nothing less.

After starting out in hip hop, soundtracks and other commissioned work, the gifted Parisian with an overflowing imagination started writing his pop great work last year.

Fully composed in the multiinstrumentalist dandy's home studio in Montmartre, this extensive album shows precision and romanticism in the writing, reminding of the golden age of the 60s blended with the best sounds of the history of modern pop.

After sending out his album like a message in a bottle to a famous music journalist, he decides to take a major step and release his album on Bandcamp by his own means in December 2015.

He sold more than 300 copies of it, which is a real feat these days. Praised at it digital launch by both amateurs and purists for its timeless sound, "Tears behind the stars" borrows from Beach Boys and Kinks-like melodies from the 60s, as well as from more electro-progressive and dreamy sounds from the 70s.

More than a birth certificate, it is a multi-faceted album - which is anything but a coincidence for this ambitious sound craftsman who loves pocket-size symphonies and high-quality pop culture.

A few months after a discreet launch on the internet inferno, it has now become an emergency to let you listen to this first album that - as suggested by its cover - has a promising future.
