Born under a claret sky in Burnley, Lancashire, Paul witnessed the Glam Rock pop-stars of the 1970s and the New Romantics of the early 1980s, and had notions of joining some of his heroes in later life. However, the realisation dawned on him that his inability to play a musical instrument might be a hindrance to his dream. So instead, his fledgling lyrical attempts slowly evolved into poetry. With no subject considered taboo, his mood can lurch from the darkest depths to the light airy notions of love and peace.
After years of wandering the emotional wilderness, Paul, now married to his true soul mate and the father of four children, has found his true calling. Paul currently resides in the Rossendale Valley in Lancashire, where he leads the good life and is co-founder and Chair for a local Community Group. He also writes for, and features in, several music publications and his own popular blog site.
