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.
