With Pip and the ‘Distraction Pieces Band’, Paul enjoyed the success of sold out tours of the UK and Ireland, extensive European tours, and highly anticipated appearances at some of the UK and Ireland’s largest festivals.

Paul continues to work with Scroobius Pip, B.Dolan and other artists associated with Speech Development records.

In 2013 Paul became a member of dual-drummer alt-rock super group; Red Kite, fronted by ex-Cooper Temple Clause guitarist and singer Dan Fisher. As well as gaining a reputation as an exciting and ferocious live band, Red Kite released their debut album ‘Songs For Crow’ in 2014 to high regard.

During 2014 Paul had the opportunity to play prestigious venue shows and major folk festival appearances with BBC Award winning folk artist Lisa Knapp, demonstrating Paul’s ability to adapt to his musical situation. Paul also has a keen love of Jazz and regularly plays with Jazz acts such as, The Tomcats and his own jazz band ‘The Hengist Quartet’.

Paul’s latest and most exciting project is with, former Pure Reason Revolution band mate, Chloe Alper. Chloe has teamed up with multi-instrumentalist and MOBO and Grammy nominated engineer Mat Collis to form ‘Tiny Giant’.

Paul is passionate about learning, education, and access to music for all. He has many years experience of playing and studying drums, as well as teaching in widespread and varied situations, with a great diversity of people. A true musician, Paul is committed to constant improvement. Paul offers one-on-one lessons from his studio to all ages and abilities. His teaching style is characterised by a comprehensive, bottom-up approach that offers students a structured and measured framework in which to develop their playing.

Working both out of his own studio and in established recording facilities, Paul has found himself in demand for various creative endeavours, commercial or otherwise. This has seen him recording drum tracks for a variety of artists, producers, adverts, and library projects.
