"You Answered Me" contains moving Psalm settings in eclectic musical styles ranging from traditional piano/guitar to bluegrass, gospel/jazz to rock. Paul's music is being used in churches across the country, and now has international acclaim with several Anglican parishes. His music has also become a standard for prayer and meditation for many groups. Bostonia magazine described Paul's music as "...bringing a youthful flavor..." to the church's music.
Paul's music captures the very essense of the Psalms, emphasizing the mood and thoughts of the words. Especially moving are the settings for Psalm 32 (Lord, I Turn To You), Psalm 51 (Be Merciful), and Psalm 67 (Let All The Nations Praise You), which are full of energy, depth of feeling, and prayer.
Paul presently serves on active duty in the United States Air Force and is assigned to Scott Air Force Base, near Belleville, Illinois.
