Paul Bergmann

Thursday - August, 02 @ 5:00pm

"Paul Bergmann is a prize-fighter: sinuous, sinewy, a ballerina in a bloodspot arena." [L.A. Record]  

crooner with a cultish following, Bergmann's "Americana noir goes beyond sad-sack, whiskey-soaked rumination, the hum of his almost pugilistic lyrics wry and sobering and more than a little bit challenging." [Buzzbands LA]  He did his time in L.A. and now resides in the Northeast.

He's played alongside contemporaries like Angel Olsen, Chad Vangaalen, and Nick Waterhouse.

“For Bergmann, the great harmonic enchanter, being itself doesn’t hold a center point. And that’s the point. It’s in all of us, distributed equally—a whisper all of us can hear.” [Flood]
