ELECTRONIC ARTIST, COMPOSER & RECORD PRODUCER
Paul Fishman is the former keyboard player of the internationally acclaimed 80s new wave band, Re-Flex. Fishman toured worldwide with the band in the late 80s and is the writer of the international hit "Politics of Dancing." Fishman has since produced music for some of music's biggest names and has contributed original compositions to over 100 films. Recently, he has been at work producing his first solo project in 15 years. The electronic-inspired record "It's About Time" landed in two parts with the second part landing in March 2020. You can read the full story here.
At the risk of defying musical category, “It’s About Time” combines electronic music
with different genres. Or is it the other way around? Fishman's debut solo album is where cyber-funk and ambiance
meet with big tunes. The unusual blend of harmonically rich textures
was inspired by rediscovered obsolete electronic equipment, a desire to try
something new and if possible - go beyond.
