Playing the songs of some of the world's best singer-songwriters for over 30 years, Paul has been able to take all of those influences and develop his own particular songwriting style. Not one to make things up, most of his songs are based - at least somewhat - in true life experiences of the things he's done and the
people he's known.

As the vocal front-man for several country bands in the 80's and 90's, and later for the highly successful Trop-Rock bands PHINS (winners of the 2008 Trop-Rock Horizon Award) and the 12 Volt Band, Paul decided in 2010 that it was time to venture out on his own, where he would have the opportunity to tell his stories his way, in his own time.

After a career move put him in Florida in 2011, he has finally made the move to playing his music full time, performing solo shows and house concerts at venues all around south Florida. He has also taken his shows on the road to the Florida panhandle, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona, Southern California, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Mississippi, Washington, and Michigan.
As a songwriter, Paul continues to gain the respect of peers, as well as fans. His song, “The ‘B’ Team”, from his current CD, “I’m Not Perfect”, was a Song Of The Year nominee for the 2015 Trop-Rock Music Awards (www.troprock.org), and the autobiographical “Just To See If I Could”, from the CD “Today’s The Day”, was a top finalist in the 2012 Great American Songwriting Contest (www.greatamericansong.com).

Both CD’s have been receiving great reviews, including the following from acclaimed singer-songwriter Keith Sykes:
“Songwriting, song selection, performances and production are all top notch.
I'd be very proud of this record if it were mine."

Paul has recently released his second solo album, “I’m Not Perfect”, featuring 8 original tracks, as well as a selection of covers from some of the finest writers in the business—including Keith Sykes and the late Warren Zevon. more >>>
Mike Younger
In the rough and tumble journey of a singer/songwriter it is no simple task to simplify and summarize for the sake of easy quantification.
Mike Younger started out as a street singer, on the road at 17...Leaving his hometown of Halifax, his journey passed through Vancouver, Toronto, New York City and New Orleans. His earliest stages were sidewalks, doorways, subway platform, city parks etc.

Mr. Younger's music was first noticed by music publishers in the late 90s and he moved to Nashville to pursue recording opportunities. His first record, "Somethin' In The Air", produced by Rodney Crowell, was released by Beyond Music in 2000 to positive critical acclaim and widespread radio airplay.

In 2001 he recorded an album in Memphis with Levon Helm of The Band. The record was lost in label problems but recently resurfaced after 15 years and is being prepared for release at some point in the near future.

Mr. Younger has released several records independently, including his brand new release "Little Folks Like You And Me", produced by Bob Britt, one of Nashville's finest guitar slingers (Leon Russell, Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, Delbert McClinton).
