Everything Paul has done since entering the entertainment industry in the late 1980s has been from the heart. Whether it was lending his drawing, directing and design skills to films, books and graphic novels, the visual arts or writing, recording and performing his songs, PJB is a consummate creator.
Since returning to writing and recording his original songs Paul has released a limited edition EP called "The Start Of It" in 2018 for which he also and directed a promo video for each song, Paul has released two albums.
The first of which was recorded in Canada, Ireland and New York with producer Hugh Christopher Brown and was released on Canadian recording label Wolfe Island Records in summer 2020. It garnered great critical success with RnR Magazine saying its songs "swim inside your head like digitally animated fish" and Penny Black Music complimenting the record on its "beautiful Country Rock harmonies".
The follow up album "Hard Truth" was recorded in Ireland with producer Dave Molloy and released on April 29th, 2022 to further great acclaim. Paul has produced a promo video for all ten songs on the album with the title track video set for release in early 2023.
