Paul Newman is an Austin-based post rock/math rock band taking its name from its bassist.[1] Their music is largely instrumental, creating vast soundscapes with occasional interjections of both subtle and intense vocals.


The band formed in 1995 with an initial lineup of Paul A. Newman (bass guitar), Craig McCaffrey (guitar), and Anthony Nozero (drums).[2] Bassist Eddie Robert joined the following year.[2] After a debut single, the band signed to Trance Syndicate, releasing their first album, Frames per Second, on the label in 1998.[2] Second album Only Love Can Break Your Heart followed later that year.[1][2] After Trance Syndicate folded they signed to My Pal God for the 2000 album Machine Is Not Broken.[2]

In 2005 they released This Is How It Is Lost on the Emperor Jones label.[3]
