NOTES
"Paul Maged is a hell of a wordsmith. On Maged’s latest record Diamonds & Demons, he embeds a sense of humor in his sharp observation of the world. From rampant narcissism to war, Maged’s voice is the Roger Daltrey (the streamlined Tommy version) of now…if he had the wicked wit of Keith Moon and the evangelism of Elvis Costello. The whole of Diamonds & Demons is craftily light considering the weight of the messaging. Maged can deliver some heavy thoughts while keeping it catchy as is noted on “Last Days” and “Human Warfare” or “My Dear Love.” - Scallywag album review

“Diamonds and Demons” makes us look at ourselves in an entirely different way. I love the way Maged takes the music and can express exactly what each and every one of us has experienced at some point in our lives. Maged pulls on real life situations to express the real life issues we face every day. He takes the hard stuff, the tough stuff and turns it into a musical sound bite that challenges us to face up to what society is doing to itself. He takes the personal side of tragedy and turns it into a inspiration to overcome." - Nashville Music Guide

"Paul Maged proves rock ‘n’ roll isn’t dead; it just needed a reason to get out of bed in the morning." - Popdose

Recording artist and songwriter Paul Maged is excited to announce the release of his sophomore album, "Diamonds & Demons", the highly anticipated follow up to his debut record, "In My Time". Diamonds & Demons is produced by Multi-Platinum Producer Sean Gill.

Maged's new music announces an exciting and uncompromising voice in Alternative Rock. His songs have depth and explore concepts, social issues and universal themes such as climate change, human warfare, religion and today’s evolving society, that are very passionate to Maged, creating a unique vision through his music.

In 2011, while vacationing in Cape Cod, Maged began a labor of love, writing the songs to his follow up album, Diamonds & Demons. The first song written for the album was called "Images" and it set the tone literally and metaphorically for what was to follow. Musically inspired by the sounds of the current Indie scene as well as Maged's own influences such as Pearl Jam, Green Day, Billy Joel, Elvis Costello and R.E.M., the songs exude an eclectic diversity. Lyrically they are brutally honest; an intense exploration of modern day society and Maged's own struggles and questions within it, creating a conceptual feel that builds throughout the album. The vocals are delivered with urgency and edge, breathing story, life and soul into every piece.

Paul Maged is an artist for a new age, having taken the common definition of a Singer-Songwriter and blown it away, creating his own sound infused with punk, grunge, classic rock, indie pop and balladeer, in the form of an Alternative Rock Artist.
