The duo Galen & Paul was born from a collaboration between Galen Ayers (Kevin Ayers' daughter) and Paul Simonon, bass player of The Clash and Gorillaz during the confinement. During this period of isolation in a fishing village in Mallorca, Paul began to write and compose and then presented his ideas to his friend Galen on his return to London, 18 months later. They then locked themselves in every night to put the finishing touches to 10 great songs.
Their first album "Can We Do Tomorrow Another Day?" available on May 19, 2023, offers an unexpected atmosphere for ex-punk Paul Simonon who smashed his bass on stage. A true invitation to discovery and inspired by different currents of European music, their spellbinding and spontaneous songs take you on a journey through Spanish pop, English sea chanteys and French chanson sounds.
To discover Galen & Paul for the first time on stage in Paris, go to the Maroquinerie on June 11, 2023!
