Paul Schindler’s Americana Love Letters

paul schindler

Paul Schindler is a journalist, educator, and academic based in San Francisco, California. A talented and eclectic creator, Paul worked for 20 years in computer journalism, writing on assignment for high-profile tech publications like Computer Systems News, Information Systems News, Information Week, PC Week, Byte Magazine, and Windows Magazine. He later worked for eight years as a middle school history teacher.

Although much of the MIT graduate and former Jeopardy contestant’s work has orbited around the IT world, behind that analytical mind lies a poet. In 2020, Paul Schindler decided to try his hand at songwriting, and penned a series of romantic odes to his wife. He hired a freelance musician to record his three best tunes, and a music career was born.

Lyrics By Paul is the new EP from Paul Schindler, available worldwide via YouTube. On the three-song set, Paul offers a heartfelt dedication to the love of his life. With the help of his anonymous musical collaborator, the poet shares that love with the world, set to a cool Americana vibe. 

The record opens with the current single, the gender-bending love song “You’re the Only Woman Man Enough (To Bask In My Love)”. The track opens on an upbeat country/pop groove. On the mic, the singer tells the autobiographical tale of a loving soul who has finally found a partner in an otherwise unforgiving romantic landscape.

“If Offered A Choice” follows, with a folky metaphysical contemplation about love and reincarnation. As the singer strums his acoustic guitar, he asks his beloved to please choose him again as a partner, should she be given a choice as to the nature of her next life. The EP closes with “You Hold My Heart”, a gospel-infused bit of introspection, in which dark Americana verses about past romantic strife give way to the light of love in the present.
