Paul Inman’s Delivery is the musical creation of a man named Paul Inman, a singer/songwriter from Detroit who now resides in Los Angeles.nman’s songs are roadmaps of the soul, a series of paintings that are sometimes culled from personal experience, other times from the triumphs and failures of others in an imperfect world. Like many great songwriters, Inman takes personal experience and universalizes it. A definite must have for anyone who loves music, poetry and travel.
