Paul's music is often compared to that of Jim Croce and Jimmy Buffet, although Paul prefers the work of Mark Heard and Rich Mullins. It’s original, thoughtful, upbeat, and seldom quite what you’d expect.
Paul emphasizes acoustic guitar sounds as he plays folk, blues, bluegrass and everything in between.
"At the Heart of My Heart Was The Music"
Paul's song by that title tells the story of Paul's musical and spiritual journey - of the ways his life has influenced his music, and of ways music has influenced his life.
Paul grew up in an Ohio family that valued work and education. So Paul's worked all kinds of jobs, and studied (and taught) all kinds of subjects. Professionally he mostly writes books about computers, but he also writes nonfiction articles on many other topics, as well as fiction.
As a Folk and Gospel musician, Paul has written over a hundred songs and performed in public well over a thousand times, in all kinds of settings, including coffeehouses, schools, festivals, and churches.
But Paul's most challenging experience has been parenting three daughters, two of which are now also teachers.
Paul’s songs reflect that experience.They let you know he’s seen most sides of life, and that very little came easily. It’s no wonder people often remark that particular songs seem to speak especially to them and their situations, too.
These days, Paul doesn't do many concerts, but he still participates in worship services, youth outreaches, teaching music, helping with high school musicals, and just about anything to "pass the baton" to the current generation.
Paul also maintains several music-oriented web pages, including:
