What’s been said about FNT music:

• “That’s some deep Lyrics.” Ziggy Marley

• “When I listen to Paul sing, it’s frightening. I hear Caetano Veloso’s great songwriting skills of consciousness. He has Jorge Ben warmth, and depth musically with just a pinch of Bob Marley’s yearning thrown in for good measure. I even feel some Don Mclean seeping through his pores.” Maurice Edwards (M4)

• “There’s something here awaiting polish, like a diamond in the rough. Hanna has the potential of becoming a poet laureate of the Isles.” Wayne Harada (Island Life Honolulu Advertiser)

• “Paul’s music and talent has placed him in a global position as one of the young stars for the UN International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non Violence among Children of the World.” (Joanne Tawfilis)

• In 2009 Paul placed in the Indie International Song Writing Contest.

Markalan - Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Markalan moved to Pacific Beach in 1994. During his first four years in San Diego, he worked as a photographer for the United States Navy. Over the past decade, he's been behind the bar or turntables in many of San Diego's nightclubs, and venues. He's shared his musical selections with Southern & Baja California, and the Mayan Riviera. During these years, he could be found exchanging his time for vinyl at Groove Records and Siesta Records. 

He often worked for trade, to support his vinyl addiction. He currently owns over 8,000 records. "Listening to my father's albums is when it all began. Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
