Hello, I am a songwriter/singer from Scotland, and I’m releasing three albums that follow a concept progression; the “Writer Man” album is a big dialogue, of varying perspectives, between the point of view of the journalist and a star.

 

And “The Visitors” (double album) is about the rest of us and our rollercoaster of love and predilection to conflict and need to reconcile.

 

Featuring, among other world class musicians, backing vocals and percussion by Crystal Taliefero of the Billy Joel band on: "Writer man" and "A Watchers Point of View"

​"Really good solid organic original material…it has to be experienced live, 

they’re not simple in terms of structure

nor in terms of emotional content."

-Miguel Cavazos,

session drummer, LA

“It’s Beatles, it’s u2, its Bob Dylan, Lenny Kravitz and Billy Joel, its jazz – you write this style and that style– you have obviously been influenced by all the songs you have been playing through the years. The world would welcome something like this now with open arms, the songs are timeless, it’s an album like Sgt Pepper”.

"Paul's songs are alive, you have to

live with them. Paul also sets the

standard, when it comes to camaraderie, and healthy artistic sharing."
