KISS frontman Paul Stanley will release his debut album with eponymous side-project Paul Stanley’s Soul Station, ‘Now and Then’, on Friday 5th March 2021.

a lot of people I respect have told me, that mission was accomplished.”

Reflecting upon his musical influences, Stanley continued: “Long before I ever heard the great British bands, I grew up listening to Philly Soul, Motown and so much more. I was lucky to see Otis Redding and Solomon Burke among others.

“That music and its storytelling gave me strength and hope even in some tough days. The great classics of that era are magical medicine for most and I felt myself drawn back to that era for some sorcery I think we could all use.”
