Paul’s talent was first showcased on the ITV show, Stars In Their Eyes in 2000, when he appeared twice on the show; firstly in May 2000 as part of the normal heats and then again in Dec 2000, when he was invited back by Granada TV to appear on the Christmas Special, on which he was announced the show winner on Christmas Day.
Paul has honed and perfected his Ronan Keating Tribute show for the last 10 years. He doesn’t simply stand and entertain his audiences. He brings them to their feet, interacting with them between every song and actually getting them up on stage to be involved. This interaction coupled with Paul’s singing abilities is what sets his show apart from all the rest. His audiences always leave a night feeling fully ‘entertained’.
Following the release of Ronan’s two latest albums “Winter Songs” and the No.1 “Songs for My Mother”, coupled with the Boyzone Greatest Hits album, “Back Again.. No Matter What” demand for Paul’s show has further enhanced nationwide.
Back in January 2009, Paul received a prank phone call from Ronan Keating himself, along with late fellow band member, Stephen Gately who both called Paul live during a Radio interview pretending to be a better Ronan Keating tribute than Paul and they had a sing off live on the radio. Paul later met Ronan in June 2009 backstage at a Boyzone concert in Manchester.
Similar to Ronan Keating, Paul’s mother died from cancer, so he has dedicated his talent to raising money for charity. In April 2009, Paul did a major concert with fellow tribute acts, ’My Winehouse’, ’Almost Pink’ and ‘Echoes of Eva Cassidy’, raising just under £2000 for ‘The Christie’ Cancer Hospital in Manchester. Previous charity proceeds recipients from Paul’s work have included Derian House Childrens’ Hospice, Head First and Wigan Hospice.
Paul has experience with performing for audiences at all types of events including:
• Corporate Events (clients include Sony, Next, Pizza Hut, Tesco, La Senza, WH Smith)
• Dinner & Tribute Evenings • Restaurants & Nightclubs • Weddings (& Funerals!) • Football & Rugby Matches
During his career, Paul has appeared on the bill with many other celebrities including: Dina Carroll, Barbara Windsor, Tony Hadley, Frank Carson, Signature (Britain’s Got Talent), Cheryl Baker, Ricky Tommlinson, Liberty X, Will Mellor and Vernon Kay (to name a few).
