He became a professional singer by the age of 12 when cast in his first opera wth the National Concert Orchestra of Ireland and recorded his first album "The Golden Voice" as a boy soprano at 14. His second release, entitled VELVET, was in 2005 and reached #2 in the Irish music charts. This led to many appearances on Irish Television and Radio, including "Celebrity Jigs and Reels" where he reached the grand final. Paul went on to release his Christmas album entitled "I'll Be Home For Christmas" in 2008, which charted in the Classical Billboard Charts.
His talent as a tenor has taken him far and wide, and some of the many highlights of his career to date include performing for many dignitaries such as Irish President Mary McAleese, Emperor Akihito of Japan, Former Irish President and UN Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson and most recently for United States President, Barack Obama.
