Paradigms is a two man band project created in 2011 by Steve Beck, a musician & producer from Bournemouth and Lee Ditcher, a singer/songwriter from Poole.
Lee and Steve have been involved in a number of bands and music projects over the years, Lee mainly as a guitarist and vocalist and Steve, playing different instruments including piano and bass guitar and working as a producer for different bands.
Paradigms create a fresh, varied range of sounds, inspired by many different genres and artists and by their own love for experimenting. Steve has always taken inspiration for songwriting and production from bands such as Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails and Pink Floyd, while Lee draws a lot of influence in his songwriting from the contrasting sounds of bands like Radiohead, Muse and even The Beatles.
In January 2013, Paradigms signed a contract with Bournemouth based Red Dragon Records Ltd for the official release of ‘The Long Way EP’. With more ideas consistently flowing out they will continue to take inspiration from the music around them to create new, thought provoking tunes with strong, emotion-bound lyrics.
