"Remarkable songwriter... we should all work on helping make him the star he deserves to be."
“... an unpretentious, refreshingly honest songwriter... one of the bedrocks of the UK alt. Country, folk and Americana scene"
- 3 Chords And The Truth
"Paul is an incredibly talented songwriter with big, catchy melodies. His songs are at times very humorous, rebellious, sometimes sad but always refreshingly honest. His material is like him – confident, highly original and totally individual."
