About Me

I began teaching myself guitar at 15 in Formby, Merseyside and started writing songs and exploring lead guitar.  Later after 5 years studying philosophy, psychology, political philosophy and oriental philosophy in Wales and London, I spent some time in Germany then back to London recording demos on a Yamaha 8 Track, some of which still exist and are being put down on digital and enhanced....Some even reworked.

A move back up north in 2006 saw me creating new age and ambient music on VSTi synths, then shortly after a move to Oxford in 2010, I set up a very successful website selling downloads of new age music.  After that I Began using YouTube to reach listeners and to date have over 40 million views on various YouTube channels I created.

I have spent the last couple of years focussing on my backlog of  progressive rock music and am currently working on 12 progressive rock albums and two ambient albums at various stages of completion. I have also undertaken various side projects and collaborations since 2019 and have music released under various monikers outside of my solo work.

To date, my music has been streamed or viewed 60 million times on various  YouTube, SoundCloud and Apple Music (with an Apple Music editorial plavement) accounts all over the world on radio and downloads.

I have been in interested esoteric philosophy, Buddhist and Hindu philosophy since the late 80's. Another main interest is the study of the history of new religions, esoteric and occult socities, cults and the founders of such organistations.

Another hobby is European train travel. I have travelled from Oxford to the Arctic and recorded an album on the sleeper trains, Other epic train journeys I have done include London to Athens and back. warsaw, Rome and London to Pisa. I particularly enjoy the night trains where one has a bed and can visit the bar before retiring to wake up in Scotland, Austria or Sweden and so on. You can watch a video of my Train to Scandinavia album here. I Enjoy train travel in the UK too and you can often find me nibbling on lunch or breakfast on a train somewhere.

Paul owns a number of music related business including NAD digital distribution, New Age Music Planet and BandMarket.

I also enjoy long distance train travel across Europe and raiding hotel minibars.
