Love is Love - CD

2016 release. 

Love remains the eternal thread that connects us all, even when it is compromised and moves beyond our understanding.  

That is the underlying truth of Love Is Love, a new collection from Paul Sachs. His new CD takes us on a profound journey into the dark corners of love– love compromised, love revealed, love as pain. It brings us 11 harrowing tales of heartbreak and loss that illuminate the full spectrum of human love, and how that love is transformed through time and experience.

These musical short stories are firmly in the folk tradition of Harry Chapin or Bruce Springsteen, told from the perspective of both men and women. In Boys Will be Boys Sachs tells the tragic tale of his high school friend, a male hustler who died from AIDS in New York City in the 80s. In The Killer Inside a women leaves her family and falls in love with a man on death row. Her story unfolds behind glass, told on a prison phone. In No Man’s Land a father struggles with addiction, desperately wanting to stop using and get back to his new born daughter. In The Witness, based on the Tamir Rice shooting in Cleveland, a mother tells an all too familiar story of our times. 

When asked to describe Paul’s music and songwriting, my answer is, ’real’.

Oil Town 2011

Paul Sachs: Oil Town

Reviews for Oil Town:

Paul Sachs' new CD, "Oil Town," is an impressive collection of from-the-heart songs, sung with grit and passion--and the right amount of grace. He writes insightful songs and sings them the way he envisioned them to be sung.  This CD is well-produced, with just enough accompaniment to accentuate Paul's music, bringing his strong, clear vocals to the forefront.  Paul makes his mentor, the late Jack Hardy, proud of him with this one.
--Wanda Fischer, Producer/Host, "The Hudson River Sampler," WAMC-FM/Northeast Public Radio

"With a country crooner's voice and a folk songwriter's soul, Paul Sachs is in tune with our uncertain times in the 21st century. On 'Oil Town,' he sets an unflinching eye on rusted dreams, frayed lives, corporate evil-doers, and the smaller tragedies between average men and women everywhere."

- Chris Kocher, writer for the (Binghamton, N.Y.) Press & Sun-Bulletin and Sing Out

 Since I got a copy of Paul Sachs' latest album  "Oil Town", his songs have been swirling in my head.  Sachs is gifted with  one of those strong voices that get your attention,  a bag of memorable melodies and lyrics to grab your soul, and a powerful message that makes him a troubadour of our troubled times.   Oil Town has already made my top ten list for 2011.

"Paul Sachs new recording Oil Town has a real smooth acoustic sound that's drenched with great grass root lyrics. This CD gives a lot of pure listening pleasure. Excellent project."

Paul Sachs' big voice frames the eloquently told tales of working class desperation in these times of corporate takeover. This album could be called "Oil World," but "Oil Town" will do. This new effort marks the emergence of an important voice in the genre of social commentary folk music.

These Quiet Streets

"If the Greenwich Village folk scene ever kicks back into high gear as in the 60s, we’ll all be better served if Paul Sachs joins in and shares his tales with us. This is my request that he do just that." Derek Blackmon - Indie-Music.com

"It is at its most emotional a buoyant affirmation of the joy and sorrow bled from a life well lived." Joe Forte - HomeGrownRadioNJ.com
