The song announces the release of an album scheduled to be published in the spring of 2021.
Paul Dutton currently resides on the Central Coast of California in the small beach town of Cayucos. As a multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer for acts like Joshua Barnhart and Strange Pilgrim among many others, he discovered his own voice and embarked on the journey of recording a solo album.
With all the time recently spent at home where he records, rehearses, and jams, Dutton began work on the first single for his album. After playing all the instruments on the track, he reached out to long-time friend and collaborator Brett Hammond, who plays lead guitar, and the tune came to life overnight.
Walls of Light draws upon the soundscape of American music, from the southern rock twang of the guitars to the psychedelic dreaminess of the vocal harmonies. The song lays out in elemental terms the timeless dichotomy of light and dark, employing the call and response of Dutton’s vocals and Brett Hammond’s guitar to shift the mood throughout the track, illuminating the shadows as they carry the listener along.
