Welcome to Paul Korda
Thanks for visiting.
Paul Korda, who grew up in Brighton England, returned to his hometown and moves into a new home in Kemptown, on the beachfront, a stone's throw away from Brighton Pier, on the 15th of May (See International Entertainment News) It hasn't been exactly easy for him to make the transition, due to climate, diet and social changes, and he is currently suffering a high fever, but all the same, he wants to keep his eye on the goal of bringing a new album to completion. I hope your thoughts and prayers are with him. Here are the first two tracks:
Paul Korda's good friend, and brilliant saxophonist, Al Kroll, who played on the Seeds album, has just completed solos and parts on "Feeling Those Feelings", another song for the new album and you can hear it now for a limited time.
Paul hopes you'll enjoy his tribute to 60's idealism

Paul in the studio in Los Angeles
Peace One Day, the organization backed by the UN that created Peace Day on Earth (September 21st) selected Paul Korda & the 32nd St/USC Choir video "Beyond the Darkness" as a "Song for Peace".
Beyond the Darkness - Paul Korda & the 32nd St./USC Choir
Recorded at A&M Studio A Hollywood, where "We are the World" was recorded, and on location in East Los Angeles, the music video was born out of Paul Korda teaching youngsters at the community centers of East Los Angeles, to outlet their frustrations through improvisational music creation. Seeing the benefits to the kids, brought about by this spontaneous creation, he then went on to write "Beyond the Darkness, with the intent of gaining financial resources for this form of education, and with the help of many, made this video, proceeds that will contribute to the Magnet School Program for the Performing Arts.
There's little doubt that creativity can help steer our Earth back from the edge of destruction and help children to retain their innocence and build their character, avoiding the pitfalls of urban destructive behavior, especially that of abusive parents.
So support creativity as your way of showing your support for the expression of kids through the performing arts and help the schools maintain their programs in the current state budget shortfall.
Directed by Emmy winner Linda Yellen, arranged by Phil Collins' keyboard player and film composer J. Peter Robinson, guitars by Mike Miller (Chick Corea) Choirmaster Mark Johnston.
Special thanks to Herb Alpert and everyone involved for helping to make it all possible.
All the love in the World to the children of the 32nd St./USC Magnet School for the Arts and the children from the community centers of East Los Angeles, as well as all the children of our small planet.
