Bio

Playing the songs of some of the world's best singer-songwriters for over 30 years, Paul has been able to take all of those influences and develop his own particular songwriting style. Not one to make things up, most of his songs are based - at least somewhat - in true life experiences of the things he's done and the people he's known.

Playing the songs of some of the world's best singer-songwriters for over 30 years, Paul has been able to take all of those influences and develop his own particular songwriting style. Not one to make things up, most of his songs are based - at least somewhat - in true life experiences of the things he's done and the people he's known.


As the vocal front-man for several country bands in the 80's and 90's, and later for the highly successful Trop-Rock bands PHINS (winners of the 2008 Trop-Rock Horizon Award) and the 12 Volt Band, Paul decided in 2010 that it was time to venture out on his own, where he would have the opportunity to tell his stories his way, in his own time. In April of that year, he set up a series of house concerts featuring himself and award-winning Texas songwriter Troy Allan. The success of those four shows led to appearances in Florida and Michigan that summer, as well as an increased presence back home in Missouri and neighboring Illinois.


With a career move putting him in Florida, he has had to resign his position in PHINS, and has moved on to strictly solo shows and house concerts at venues around the southwest Florida area, including the award-winning Nav-A-Gator Grill.


As a songwriter, Paul continues to gain the respect of peers, as well as fans. His song, “I Wanna Be Howie” was a Song Of The Year nominee for the 2012 Trop-Rock Music Awards (www.troprock.org), and the autobiographical “Just To See If I Could” was a top finalist in the 2012 Great American Songwriting Contest (www.greatamericansong.com). Both are included on his first solo CD, “Today’s The Day”, which has been receiving great reviews, including the following from acclaimed singer-songwriter Keith Sykes:


“Songwriting, song selection, performances and production are all top notch. I'd be very proud of this record if it were mine."
