The ‘No Parlez’ album was Paul’s debut album. It reached number 1 in the UK charts in 1983 for 5 weeks and fast became triple Platinum. The album produced Paul’s first UK number 1 single – The Marvin Gaye cover of ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat’ and hits ‘Come Back & Stay’ & ‘Love of The Common People’.

With the release of his second album “The Secret Of Association” and the success of “Every Time You Go Away” his status as a world star was confirmed. In 1987 Paul recorded his third album “Between Two Fires” in Milan where he met the Italian singer Zucchero.
They became good friends and were later to collaborate very successfully. One of the highlights of the 1989 “Nelson Mandela Tribute Concert” was Paul’s performance of the Crowded House song “Don’t Dream It’s Over” which he later recorded for his best of album.
He is also a Brit Award winner for Best Male vocalist, sings the opening lines on the original Band Aid Single ‘Feed The World’ and performed at Live Aid in 1984. Paul is a keen chef, biker and fan of all things Mexicana! A family man, always happy to be touring his classic hits as a solo artist or with his Tex Mex/ Americana band ‘Los Pacaminos’.
