MusicJOHN PAUL WHITE’S BEULAH SET FOR RELEASE ON SINGLE LOCK RECORDS AUGUST 19
Single Lock Records will release John Paul White’s solo album Beulah on August 19. NPR’s “Songs We Love” recently debuted “The Martyr,” the first song from the new album:

“Any mindfulness guru will tell you that the most important thing to do, when it comes to change, is nothing. Just be. In White’s case, that truism became truth: Beulah, the album that resulted from him not pursuing a particular career goal, blends his previous approaches seamlessly in songs that are daringly intimate, artfully modulated, hook-blessed and habit-forming. “The Martyr,” the song featured here, is on the rock end of the album’s spectrum; others hint at a country twang or a soul moan, while always driving back toward simplicity and White’s singing, which dazzles without ever grabbing for attention.”
