Sincerely PaulJuly 28, 2006
Sincerely Paul was an early Christian goth band comrpised of vocalist Jim Strawn and several other members. The band released an independent custom-made cassette demo in 1989, followed by a full-length album, titled Grieve, which was released two years later on Blonde Vinyl Records.
Sincerely Paul’s music was a brooding mix of the alterna-rock and goth sound popularized by The Violet Burning and L.S.U., with the late 80′s synth-pop of The Cure and Depeche Mode. Although this style of music was pretty innovative for Christian music at the time and Grieve was criticaly acclaimed by the market’s then-fledgling alternative and goth scenes, the album and band were overlooked by most major labels and publications and faded into obscurity after Blonde Vinyl Records folded in late 1992.
