His 1993 debut album "No Parlez" went straight to the top of the album charts, eventually reaching quadruple Platinum with the smash single releases "Love Of The Common People" and "Come Back & Stay." Paul sang on Band-Aid's historic "Do They Know It's Christmas", famously opening the song with its first lines. This charity single spawned the never-to-be-repeated worldwide concert Live Aid in 1985. That same year, Paul's UK chart topping second album, "The Secret of Association" consolidated his success worldwide with a number one Billboard Chart single in the USA, "Every Time You Go Away." In 1990, the LP Other Voices, had a U.S. number one Adult Contemporary hit with "Oh Girl", to be followed in 1992 with another U.S. number one Adult Contemporary hit with "What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted" from the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe". Paul has collaborated and sung over the years with many artists such as Dave Gilmour, Steve Winwood, Paul Carrack, Bobby Womack, Billy Joel, Chaka Khan, Clannad, and the hits continued in the 90's with a collaborative number one European hit with Italian artist Zucchero, "Senza Una Donna", and the solo hit "Now I Know What Made Otis Blue". 2016 Saw the release of Paul's latest album release "Good Times" on the UK label New State.
