THIS IS MY SHOW

Jazzy / baby boomer / family entertainment

A concert of inspirational songs* and ideas.

Like the light and shade of the piano keys, where there is that bit more light than shade. 

I hopefully deliver an uplifting exposition, erring on the brighter, as well as darker sides of life while still seeing the positives. 

*Set on a backdrop of my own material and songs by: Danny Kaye, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Pavarotti, The Beatles, The Eagles, Sting, James Taylor, Coldplay, Garth Brooks, and opera with original lyric adaptations, as well as stories from my book. (available on Amazon).

 

“I don't belong in a box in your hand or on your laptop.

It’s a live show I give, it’s a shared thing.

It only gets to where it can go because we went there together.

Looking forward to seeing you somewhere soon."

“a jazzy arty performer and a bit of a showman... 

Paul is an all round entertainer: speaker, piano looper and singer. He took classical voice lessons for three years with Lidea De Rosa, and piano with Jim McDowall in Glasgow. The rest he picked up on the road to where we are now. He has honed his "Life Is Grand Baby” show and book after developing a broad repertoire in various London west end hotel residences. As well as stints in European ski resort piano bars, Paul is regularly booked to perform on the USA East coast for the Brightview

and The Bristal assisted living facility groups among others.”

This recording came about because I do many assisted living home gigs, doing lots of Billy Joel, Bob Dylan and my own songs at the end of the gigs, for the people who are the fans.

All the enclosed songs were recorded live in May - Aug 2021 in New York and Baltimore

In a world of hi tek music I hope you enjoy my bare bones music.

LIFE IS GRAND, BABY! - (finding joy in the midst of sorrow).

“the listener will get the very very most out of

each of them, to hear them as an album”
