He later moved to London and expanded his studio and production work in a diversity of music projects ranging from Symphony Orchestra to Indie Punk. Whilst there, Paul began specialising in a more comprehensive role as Producer, Music Director and Songwriter working with a wide range of artists. Concurrently, his committed work with philanthropic communities meant Paul managed to maintain a strong hand in education whilst working in the music industry at large. His experience and connections in the music industry continue to centre around London, Milan, and Nashville - enabling a comprehensive network for his ongoing projects.

“Working with Paul was a fantastic experience. He possesses all the skills necessary to create incredible music. He is equally adept as a songwriter or as a producer. As a songwriter he has a great ear for both melody and lyrics and as a Producer he knows how to treat and draw the best out of a song”
