Tēnā koutou,

Kei te noho au ki Ōtepoti,

ABOUT THE ALBUM

All songs written as my observation and reflection 
of the world and people around me each day. 


Forgive me as I know there are a few mistakes & glitches but I have deliberately left them there as I believe nothing is perfect and there is beauty in imperfection.

Sweet lullabies is dedicated to all those with hidden illnesses who “look well” but battle everyday.

(About me )
Paul S Allen is a singer-songwriter based in Dunedin, New Zealand.
With reflective lyric style, his original songs are from the heart and soul drawing on observations of the world around him.
Genre ranges from acoustic folk to rock. English born but a proud Kiwi, and a passionate supporter of the Dunedin music scene.

(About ADJØ)
ADJØ is a cafe and gallery focusing on emerging artists and cuisine from the Nordic kitchen. Our space is here to provide an alternative way to view and experience art, mixing with coffee and yummy food, and looking out to the beautiful botanics.

I Went For A Walk…

I went for a walk
Alone with my thoughts
 
No sound but the sea
and the calling of birds.
 
No city hum
No vehicle roar
 
Just silence and peace
The world’s call to rest.
