Paul Spring is a 25 year old singer / songwriter on Bad Run Records from Minneapolis. He is the great grandson of American poet / war hero Joyce Kilmer and impressionist painter Frederick Frieseke. He is the 9th of 10 kids and was raised by two English professors on a steady diet of classic literature and music. Written on nylon string over the course of a year while his girlfriend Sophia Heymans painted in the next room, his album Towards a Center was produced by Homer Steinweiss, the beat behind hits by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Amy Winehouse, St. Vincent, Bruno Mars and Charles Bradley. The album also features Leon Michels on horns (El Michels Affair, Lana Del Rey, Ray La Montagne).
