Los Angeles, CA--Noel Paul Stookey, “Paul” of Peter, Paul and Mary, will release his new solo album titled ONE AND MANY, coinciding with the 50th Anniversary of the legendary trio on August 22. The album will feature 15 songs written and recorded by Stookey, continuing his legacy of raising social consciousness through music. Stookey will also issue three special five-song EP releases available for fans prior to the release of the full-length album: One Voice And One Guitar on May 25, Capricious Bird on June 27, and Cue The Moon on July 26.
Stookey has been campaigning for social change through the power of music since the 1960s. Fifty years later, his thought-provoking lyrics still provide audiences with musical imagery that moves social platforms. On ONE AND MANY, Stookey addresses socially significant issues that are near to his heart -- featuring songs about social awareness (In These Times), immigration (America The Beautiful), the Afghani drug trade (The Connection), The Holocaust (Jean Claude), and more.
In addition to performing and recording more than 45 albums in his storied career - both as part of Peter, Paul and Mary, and as a soloist -- Noel is the founder of the Music2Life initiative, a nonprofit organization promoting music as a tool for social change. Acknowledging his history and association with Peter, Paul and Mary, Noel performs occasionally with Peter as a duo following the passing of their partner Mary Travers in September of 2009. Stookey oversees Neworld Multimedia, presenting new artists and creating children’s television shows and music. The royalties from his classic “Wedding Song” go to the Public Domain Foundation, where nearly two million has been put to work for charitable causes.
