Paul McMahon
Paul McMahon is a legendary singer-songwriter from Woodstock. He has written some of the most beautiful love songs of our time and sings them in beautiful voice. Set against Mississippi John Hurt style fingerpicking, McMahon's sometimes mindblowing lyrics weave the tale of this Goddess worshipper's journey through time and more than a few dimensions, inducing trance states in the receptive. He believes in the healing force of music as it has been that for him. He has released ten albums and has around 100 songs up on youtube. His songs can be found on Bandcamp, Rhapsody and Spotify. He has gotten play on WKZE, WDST and WFMU. He has played in many venues including the Metropolitan Museum, CBGB's, the Knitting Factory, the Tinker Street Cafe, and the Kitchen.
A No Wave survivor he was in Daily Life with Glenn Branca, A Band with Wharton Tiers, Naked with Julia Nichols and Army of Love with Amanda Jo Williams.

“McMahon’s heavyweight musical assets: an assured, second-nature self-accompaniment on acoustic guitar and a rangy, agreeable voice with sweet spots in all registers...To say that McMahon weaves together sacred and profane, timeless and topical doesn’t quite do justice to the spontaneous grace and high-resolution detail of the tapestry.”
-John Burdick, Hudson Valley Almanac

"Paul's musical wizardry combines insights worthy of Dylan with the vocal charm of Willie Nelson and the eclecticism of the Beatles." -Sharon Gannon, Jivamukti Yoga School

“His voice contains the seed sound. Haunted by clarity he carries the circle.”
-Joseph ‘Beautiful Painted Arrow’ Rael

“Both his art and his rock music have a lovable, whimsical, and goofy humor.”
-Dan Graham, artist, music critic
