Album Notes
PAUL ALEXANDER - bio WHO IS PAUL?

He is also the composer of the song LIGHT A CANDLE which has gained national attention for being played at candlelighting services and rituals of remembrance for the bereaved including The Compassionate Friends. Every year on World Candlelighting Day this song is utilized for support and hope while those coping with grief and loss light a candle in memory of their loved one. There are many funeral songs but this is a song of hope and inspiration and connection to loved ones who will never leave our memory .

Paul's contemporary style combined with his compassionate lyrics and compelling vocal delivery touch the heart and soul of the listener and provide healing and upliftment.
Paul's music has been inspired and enriched through his work as a Psychotherapist and Hospice Social Worker. For over ten years Paul’s bereavement work was in
a hospice for terminally ill children journeying with the children and their families
through the dying and the grief process. His grief work further moved into a private practice and strongly influenced his musical expression. His unique integration of his artistry and sensitive awareness to the hurting heart is what brings meaning to Paul Alexander's voice and music.
Among his many original compositions there is one song that serves as a beacon in his creative life..Light aCandle has been widely used for candlelightings throughout the world and along with numerous originals
such as Ray of Hope, Who Am I Now, When All is Said, Pennies from Heaven
have inspired and comforted hearts searching for meaning following their loss.

Awe-Inspiring Easy-Listening CD!
“Light a Candle and Songs of Remembrance” by Paul Alexander is a CD that will give solace to anyone who hears it. Paul's mellow, gentle voice is simply a joy to listen to. On this CD, Paul has graced us with his heavenly vocals and unforgettable instrumental compositions. One standout song is the soaring ballad “Light a Candle,” which is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Lyrically, this track represents Paul's skill to craft eloquent verses that pull at the heart-strings. “Tree of Memory” begins with a gentle display of instrumental excellence, fusing the lovely sounds of the keyboard, acoustic guitar, and strings. Moreover, the vocals are clear, well-balanced, and backed by stunning harmonies. What's more, this CD is produced with a great deal of attention-to-detail, allowing the intended emotional atmospheres to break through to listeners. Fans of sentimental easy-listening tunes will enjoy this assembly.

Light a Candle, Songs of Remembrance
Dear Paul, What an amazing album of insight and understanding. I sent for your album to be delivered to me in Ireland and it came within a couple of days and I believe it is one of the most beautiful albums connected to loss and love. I am involved with a charity here in Ireland and intend to list your album as recommended listening for those who need songs like yours. Please keep up the good work as you really do have an absolute gift and understanding.
Best wishes, Ron
