David Paul (Acoustic ACM Ministry Artist) began writing songs while performing as a lead vocalist with the Baron Brothers, a four-piece folk music group based in western New York. In his first appearance as a folk soloist, he placed second (actually first, but that's a long story) in the northeast regional finals of the Budweiser National Folk competition held at Villanova University. That began a long stretch of concertizing across the United States and Canada that led to a record and release agreement with Fraternity Records. Then, in August of 1987, David, along with Jonathan and Kuntari Bachelor, formed the dynamic folk music group, "Two-Thirds Home."
Since those early days, David has written many songs in many styles. He says, "I write to express what I experience, to unravel what gets tangled up inside of me, and to offer encouragement during life's more trying times."
After his tour with Two-Thirds Home, David left performing and devoted himself to promoting top educational music authors and composers in band, orchestra, chorus, and jazz ensemble with the Neil A. Kjos Music Company, an educational music publisher based in San Diego, California.
Shortly after the death of his dad, David began an inner search that led him back to his roots and back to the "writer's desk." At the prompting of his wife, he attended a music camp held in northern California. There he studied with Pierce Pettis, one of his favorite songwriter/performers. Uplifted by the encouragement he received from Pierce and a number of others at camp, David returned to the recording studio to produce two fine albums, “Through It All” (currently being remastered) and “The Way I Look” (released August 23, 2013 on CD Baby).
