In November 2015, Paul Knakk teamed up with Engineer John Rupp & Producer Geoff Black at Sixwill Studios in Bethlehem, PA to begin recording his debut solo album "REBEL WITH A CAUSE". Knakk came prepared with an arsenal of songs he had written throughout his years of performing along with ideas for songs like "The Road" and "Rebel With A Cause" which were later brought to life by the team at Sixwill. Over the next few months, the guys spent countless hours together carefully hand-picking and creating an eight song album filled with catchy choruses, ripping guitar solos, and story-teller-like verses that would ultimately showcase what Paul Knakk is all about as a musician and person.
Growing up on all of the music that the 1990's had to offer, Knakk says the songwriting always comes first. Knakk explains, "If you can't feel what I'm writing about then I'm not doing my job as a songwriter and musician. Regardless of how catchy the song is, I still wanted each song to have a story that others can relate to. On this album, every song has a story and every story has a meaning. The title "Rebel With a Cause" isn't just a name, it's who I am and who I've always been."
"I want to personally thank everyone for the support over the last 8 years. Without you I would never have made it to this point in my career and I am incredibly thankful for that. Releasing my first album to the public is an exciting experience and I'm ecstatic that I get to share it with so many friends. I hope you love it as much as we do." -Paul Knakk
