"Fantastic. Such a showman but also at the same time some real depth. With a level of eccentricity which I love that other people will find a bit discomforting, or quite a lot discomforting. 

Take care sausage."

Marc Duman

To differentiate the singer songwriter / original artist,

the albums of only originals are on iTunes, Spotify etc

under Artist name “Baby Tosh”.

These original albums are really fantastic,

they shouldn't be missed

“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”.

​"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

"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."
