Pauls latest album

THINKING OF HOME 
AVAILABLE NOW on iTunes 


Paul Byrom is often hailed as one of Ireland's premier tenors. The Dublin-born tenor has been in the music industry for over 20 years. Paul recorded his first album "The Golden Voice" as a boy soprano aged 14. His second release, entitled VELVET, was in 2005 and reached #2 in the Irish music charts which has led to many appearances on Irish Television and Radio, including "Celebrity Jigs and Reels" where he reached the grand final. He also appeared for a short while in Ireland's longest running soap "FAIR CITY". Paul went on to release his Christmas album entitled "I'll Be Home For Christmas" in 2008, which charted in the Classical Billboard Charts and continues to sell well.

His talent as a singer has taken him far and wide, and some of the many highlights include performing for dignitaries such as Emperor Akihito of Japan, Former Irish President's Mary McAleese and Mary Robinson and most recently for United States President, Barack Obama and Speaker of The House, John Boehner. 

Paul is an avid sports fan and performs regularly at large-scale and high profile sporting events such as six All-Ireland Finals in Croke Park,and many International rugby games in the Aviva Stadium, Dublin. Internationally, he has performed Anthems for the Pittsburgh Steelers, The Phillies, The Brooklyn Nets and Barcelona FC. He is very proud now to be a regular at TD Garden, for the Boston Celtics basketball team.

In 2007 Paul became one of the original soloists in the hit show Celtic Thunder. He toured North America and Australia with the group and had six #1 World Billboard albums.

He has since left the production and his following album "THIS IS THE MOMENT" debuted at No.1 on the World Billboard Charts and was shortlisted for a Grammy Nomination.
This was followed by his first solo tour of North America and is fortunate to continue performing for audiences throughout America. It's safe to say, Paul has gone from strength to strength. In 2013 Paul filmed his first solo TV special for Public Television called "THIS IS THE MOMENT LIVE" in Pennsylvania with his orchestra, and musical director Phil Coulter.
The show has since been aired throughout the United States and as far as Australia.

Last year Paul's latest album THINKING OF HOME reached the top of the iTunes,Amazon and World Billboard Charts and he has just been named for the second time in three years, The Irish Tenor Of The Year by the Irish Music Association.

  2. Hi Paul,

    I LOVE the new site. I've followed you from the beginning of Celtic Thunder - my introduction to you. You have a fan for life in me. I can't think of you leaving CT without tears, but I knew the first time I heard your voice that your time with them was temporary. You will most certainly become of music's superstars! I can't wait to follow you as you embark on this exciting new chapter.

    Hug, luv, & kisses

  6. Hi, Paul
    This site is beautiful, the ladies did a fine job! BTW, I truly don't believe that I have ever inquired about your boxers! LOL!
    The River is my absolute favorite from your Christmas album. It is on my car cd player among other places! Thank you for the time you spent letting us get to know the real you; dashing, talented, witty and very kind. I wish you all the best in your new direction, good luck and much success.
    Cheers,
    Maggie Costello

  11. Hi Paul
    I read you blog again....You said, that we wanted to know what color boxes you are wearing...Well, I do know when you twirled with your kilt on while your singing "Ireland Calls".....I can see you are wearing black ones....LOL
    And you do have me as a fan for life...

  12. Yeah I agree with Charlotte. It seems that the what boxers are you wearing is your own fault so you can't say to much about that. I guess that will not be part of your new show.

Can't wait to see you in NJ this weekend.... actually bringing my guys with me for a change, so I might have to curtail some of the crazy antics!!! Ha! who am I kidding... gotta give you a memorable send off..... ***sigh***

  14. Congratulations Paul! I have mixed feelings about your departure. I am very happy that you get to follow your dream (not everyone does) But sad because I thing Damian needs your pranks and ribbing to stay grounded. We wouldn't want him to become too serious. Best of luck!! Nancy

  18. Paul, I first heard Celtic Thunder on PBS here in Ft. Worth last year. I immediately purchased tickets to the Nov. concert in Grand Prairie, Tx. Took my oldest daughter with me. When you sang "Because We Believe" both of us had goose bumps - and for me it happens every time I hear you sing. The quality of your voice, range, and control is amazing. We looked at each other and said that if any of the men were to break away and go alone it would be you! I believed in you that much from the first time I heard you sing. I thought that your best song was "You Raise Me Up" until I heard "Ave Maria" off the Christmas CD. When I heard that - I didn't have goose bumps - I had tears and a quiet sense of peace.

    I've been following you on Twitter(even thought can't figure out how to post on it) :) and FB and have both of your CD's.

    Celtic Thunder is the only music I listen to since last year.

    Thank you for enriching my life.

    May God bless you and keep you in all you do.

  22. Paul, I had a idea for your merchandise decorative plates you set out or hang up. with you picture on it with maybe one of your songs like "The River" put the year on it too. I was collecting plates with the Beatles on it. I have 6 different ones...I thought you maybe interested in the idea....
    Take care....Charlotte A Patton

  23. Paul, took a week to reflect and compose my thoughts about you leaving CT. I care about you like you are a member of my family. Having said that I believe you should be given wings to fly. I will support you wherever you are and we all believe in you. So proud of you and am thankful for your voice. Gives me strength and hope. Always be true to yourself and never change for anyone! And remember-We do not remember days, we remember moments. And you have given many of those moments to us. Thank you. Love you dearly...take care
