About Paul Weller
Throughout his long career, Paul Weller thrived in the place where the past meets the present, creating forward-thinking music with deep roots. When he led the Jam, the most popular British rock band of the punk era, he spun his love of the British Invasion into vital punk, spearheading the mod revival of the late 1970s. His fascination with soul led him to form the sophisti-pop group the Style Council in 1983. Weller went solo in the early 1990s, combining classic soul with the hippie prog rock, coloring the margins with tasteful electronica. Stanley Road turned into a blockbuster in 1995, giving him popular momentum for another decade. 22 Dreams kicked off another artistic renaissance in 2008, leading to a series of adventurous albums that blended rock, soul, and electronic music, a hybrid that could be as spacy as 2020's On Sunset or as vibrant as 2021's Fat Pop (Volume 1).
