Drums and percussion have been Paul's lifelong passion; when
as a child, Paul first set eyes on a drum kit at a gig, he knew that this
was the instrument for him. Years of practise and honing his craft reaped
its rewards as the first band he was accepted into was for none other
than the legendary Australian blues icon Matt Taylor.
Since then, Paul's talent has taken him all around Australia, playing
at major venues and television appearances, on "Good Morning Australia"
and "Hey Hey, It's Saturday". His versatility has led him to
perform in bands covering a wide variety of styles; he has played at Broadford
as well as at the Tamworth country music festival with many notable performers.
Paul has combined his passion for percussion and love for Irish music
to develop an amazing fresh and original approach to playing in the folk
scene. As well as a standard drum kit, Paul uses traditional Celtic instruments
(eg. Bodhran) and also assorted percussion instruments from across the
globe. He blends these to form an amazing array of rhythmic tones and
colours over a solid, driving beat.
Past recordings include albums with Matt Taylor: 'Always Land on Your
Feet', The Giants: "Freedom Road" and "Nature of the Beast",
JoJo Leslie: "For No Other Reason ", and Andrew Sefton: "The
