Paul has moved from classical roots, through teenage pop bands and playing piano in jazz ensembles, to a regular spot in a Soho jazz bar in London.  

On Song (1993), with original words and music, is about songs and songwriting. 

With Road to Damascus (1996) Paul's songs start to make use of other writers such as Neruda and Céline. The collection was recorded with a newly acquired midi keyboard, inviting ill-advised instrument combinations including thundercracks, tabla, and Andean pipes.

Songs from the Underground (acoustic - 2001) includes lyrics from Auden, Duffy (who toasted Paul's live rendition of her poem - 'Sláinte!'), Shelley, and Celan, while his harmonies take a Latin turn on his deeper exploration of Jobim and Buarque.

Lyrical sources for Songs from the Underground (2003) include Celan, Rilke, MacNeice, Horace, and Dickinson, and musical influences at this stage include Brian Wilson, John Zorn’s Masada, Carla Bley and Norah Jones.
