The Soft Lights is a new project from Australian composer Paul Searles.
I’ve known Paul since Uni, (30 Years). During this time Paul was the keyboard player of Sydney funk band Skunkhour, he has scored films (James Cameron, Glen Goei), theatre (Wild Rice, Bangarra, Belvoir), made films (AFI/FTO director grants), won writing awards (NYC Midnight, Theatreworks) and played keyboards for well-known artists (Jenny Morris, The Reels, The Sleepy Jackson, Jimmy Barnes). He began his career in architecture.
Paul is currently in-house composer at The Gunnery in Singapore.
This album deals with a few years of grief and trauma in a beautiful and gentle way, featuring strings from members of the Australian Chamber orchestra.
Have a listen it’s beautiful…

Be careful with this new music. I’ve been listening to BROKEN on loop for hours. Facebook #zylascope @GeoffWilliams says that I posted about Paul’s new song at 9:50 pm. It’s now 12:30 pm. So over 2 and a half hours and I love it. I don’t know how I can turn it off. Let’s see what happens. Will I wake up dead, having fallen asleep at my Torvalds-style stand-up DAW and being lobotomized by my headphones? We’ll just have to wait and see. You’ve been warned. I thought music was a healthy addiction. If I live, I can always go back to smoking.
Paul sings on these songs. He told me once that he didn’t think he was a very good singer but decided that since he had played most of the instruments on his compositions that he could try singing them himself.
Why not! Hey even I can sing these days Paul, with Autotune 🙂
But after hearing the song many times, I conclude that no other voice would suit the instrumental side of the song like your voice Paul. Well done. Let us know more!
Article written by Geoff Williams. This is not a paid promotion but I am hoping that Paul sends me a few copies on CD or Vinyl that I can give away on my website. and I’m hoping he gets a Platinum disk. He won a gold one for a Skunkhour song. Skunkhour were an awesome Australian band. It’s great to find that its members are still making great music.
