Paul was born in Brighton in 1943, avoided all formal musical training and worked during his teens in music publishing instead. He wrote his first score for a major TV drama at the age of 20, since when he has scored over 130 different TV plays and series, from high drama (Peter O'Toole in "The Dark Angel") to children's comedy (the long-running series "Woof!"). Paul also enjoys composing concert and chamber works, all of them tonal and of a generally optimistic and romantic nature, many of which appear on CD alongside works by other English composers such as Malcolm Arnold, Richard Rodney Bennett, Holst and Delius. A CD of his television music, "Three Decades of TV Themes", is released in the Campion Cameo British Composer series. Television, he says, has taught him to send the audience away whistling the tune, and he doesn't see why he should do any differently in the concert hall!
