Q & A with Paul

When did you start?

I started singing at the age of 3 or so (in the privacy of my home) and I began learning how to play the guitar when I was 15.  I didn’t play and sing publicly until a year later.

What do you hope to achieve through the Kollaboration experience?

Just to play music as any platform, big or small, is always exciting for me.  Meeting/working with new people is always a plus too =).

On a day off, you can find me…

Watching various teen drama TV.  The Vampire Diaries has been a favorite of mine for some time.

People would be surprised to learn that…

I have flat feet.  I don’t know why, but people always seem to be rather surprised by this… lol.

My biggest inspirations are…

My mother as she is exactly the kind of person that I hope to be.  Musically, this is a tough question but if I have to name a few…  Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Buckley, The Civil Wars, John Mayer (especially in my younger years).

If I could perform with anybody in the world, it would be…

Prince.  That would be wild.
