A QUOTE FROM PAUL'S NEW CD.
"I grew up listening to popular music with my family, singing folk songs at hootenannies and learning to love country music by listening with my buddies to Barkin With Larkin, an AM country radio show. For my high school variety shows, I chose two Caribbean folk songs made popular by Harry Belafonte. But those loves of my life were only the beginning for me. It was the southern rockabilly artists that had me running to the Brill Building, the pop music Mecca in the heart of New York City. That musical trichotomy – folk, country and pop – has haunted me my whole recording career long."
as the writer and singer of many million-sellers.

Plus gold records for such stars as:

and Elvis Presley - "I Gotta Know", "The Next Step Is Love"
