I had the privilege of directing Paul's 2005 show at Helen's Hideaway. The show was a combination of compelling family history, standards and Paul's trunk songs. I was immediately taken by Paul's original songs and I encouraged him to use more of them them in his show. He agreed. Hearing I LOSE MY HEART brings back the initial pleasure of discovering a new voice in the post modern American songbook. The well crafted songs run the gamut from gospel-blues to 1950s cocktail music. Paul even leaps into the world of absurdist art songs. And if you listen closely you'll hear echoes Arlen, Berlin and Kurt Weill tossed into the mix. It is a tasty feast for the ears and the heart. Happy listening!” - ROBARE

I have seen Paul perform his songs on many occasions and can never get enough. Listening to his musical creations takes me to a place of warmth and comfort. His beautifully produced CD, I LOSE MY HEART, captures the true essence of his music and now I can listen whenever my heart desires, which is often!” - Babs Winn

Paul Bodden takes us on a joyous and heart-wrenching romp through a vast musical landscape - his songs run the gamut from Blues, Barbershop and Gospel influences, to Latin, Cowboy and even Classical Lieder. They have a deliciously unpredictable and untamed quality, are rhythmically and melodically exciting, and the lyrics are witty and sharp. Songs like 'Slow Relationship' are surely worthy of the likes of torch singers Bette Midler and Judy Garland, and you can most definitely hear hints of Hoagy and the roaring twenties in 'Huffa Chuffa, the Railroad Lullaby'! It's no accident that Bodden paints with a pallette reminiscent of his rich cultural heritage, and it's right here to be heard.” - Alexandra Frederick
