Maximo Park’s lead vocalist Paul Smith is now a fully-fledged Faith Guitars artist.
Paul had previously played and enjoyed the Faith models used by the band’s guitarist Duncan Lloyd and so when he announced his own solo tour to complement his debut album, the company was happy to be his first port of call.
Representatives of the brand met up with Smith at Birmingham’s Glee Club in December where an informal photo shoot took place backstage. A number of live shots were also taken, including a range of pictures showing Paul playing his new FNCETB, the Faith Neptune Trembesi model.
Paul’s debut album ‘Margins’ was co-produced by Andy Hodson and features contributions from Field Music's David and Peter Brewis and has been released on Paul’s own Billingham Records label.
Smith said that Maximo Park is still going despite his move into working under his own name, saying: "I'm not 'going solo' – it's not like George Michael leaving Wham!"
The track 'North Atlantic Drift' from Paul’s debut album is available as a free download here.
