Paul Weller’s music, as well as his artistic integrity, continues to influence today’s generation of modern rock performers._ Weller was the leader and creator of two successful bands, The Jam (1976-1982) and The Style Council (1983-1989) before starting a successful solo career in 1990. He’s also the principal figure of the 1970s Mod revival and is often called “the Modfather.”
_Weller’s new solo album, 22 Dreams, was released in U.S. stores July 22. It has already been released in the U.K. to both high praise and commercial success, debuting at #1. Of 22 Dreams, The Independent says, “it’s the best thing he’s done.” The Telegraph affirms that 22 Dreams “has the ring of a classic.”
22 Dreams’ list of collaborators includes Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, who co-wrote the first single, “Echoes Round the Sun,” and Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, who guests on the track “Black River.” Simon Dine, who has worked with Adventures in Stereo, Noonday Underground and others, co-produced the album.
Last year, Weller played three packed shows at the Avalon in Hollywood, showing both the range and depth of his stellar catalog as well as the energy he brings to the stage.
