Paul has been singing & playing live since he first picked up a guitar at the age of 17 – too many years ago to reveal! He started writing solo material in the early 90s resulting in his first album in 2000 “The Red Room” – which, for the record, was entitled a long time before “50 Shades Of Grey” ?. Tracks included the country rock of “Stony Lake” & “Perfect Life”, the funk/pop of “Just For The Money” & “All At Once” plus softer songs such as “Lead Me To The Shore” and the autobiographical “Run Wild.” It was really well received with Paul’s voice described as “ a blend of George Michael. Paul Carrack & Daryl Hall” by press & radio.
This was then followed up a couple of years later with a second album “Fall From Grace” which took on a bit of a rockier feel including the blistering title track, the funky pomp of “Edge” and the feel good FM rock of “Look At Me Now,” However his love of ballads was still there with the tender “Feels Like Love” and the sweeping album closer of “While You Were Sleeping.”
After a break from music for a number of years Paul then “got the passion back” for writing and in 2011 started work on some new songs reflecting his personal journey that resulted in 2013 release of “The Healing Pt.1” With all the songs written on his trusty acoustic guitar and including the highly personal “And Yet….” the EP was probably his most autobiographical work so far.
“The Healing Pt.2” followed in 2017 and included the huge blues rocker “Wait For The Healing” along with the gentle, acoustic guitar driven “Flying”, a song about aching to be free from the chains of regret & sadness.
The trilogy was finished with the Oct 2019 release of “The Healing Pt.3” – a four song work featuring the incredibly catchy “Until Now” and the delicate love song “Always Kiss Me Goodnight.” However, the two tracks that probably epitomise the final part of this trilogy are the soulful exhortation “All About Love” and the Thunder/Bad Company inspired “Not Waitin’ Any Longer” which boasts a mighty guitar riff and celebrates leaving the past behind.
Paul is currently working on his next release that has the working title “Catch Fire” and already has two songs recorded…..watch this space.
