Operation Paul Byrom

Well hello there boys and girls!! Its been a while since I did a blog but I suppose with the world of Twitter and Facebook, you all know what I'm doing pretty much all the time!

It has been an interesting few weeks to say the least. Starting off with the most important information. After a traumatic accident involving my grandma, Im delighted to say she is on the road to recovery and fast approaching her 93rd birthday. She is currently in hospital going through physio and getting stronger. Once they feel she is strong enough, she will be let home and back to normality. However, despite it protestations, we will all be keeping closer tabs on her. I was extremely worried as I am very close to my grandma. I always have been. During my summer holidays as a child I would spend many weeks on end with my grandparents and my Grandma and I would often head into town for the day to look through the shops. I would always end up heading home with a new piece of lego as a treat. Although we wouldn't head home without heading to mass at the Pro Cathedral and then a glass of Guinness for Grandma and a soft drink for me. Then onto the bus and home we would go. They are cherished memories of mine, and therefore my Grandparents will always have a huge part of my heart. That being said, I want to thank you all for your kind wishes and prayers at a time when I was hoping that Grandma's years of devotion would be repaid. I head home in April for a performance to commemorate the Titanic leaving Cobh Harbour. Therefore I will be able to celebrate my birthday with her as its within days of each other. Everyday is a blessing with family and I cant wait to see them all soon.

Things are good with me, and the cruise of the Panama Canal in January was a total blast. It was so great getting to spend time with so many of you and sharing a lot of laughs. Indeed it was also great getting a bit of sun on the bones whilst New York was getting some snow. It certainly broke up the winter for me.
Since coming back I have been working hard with my management and agent to plan out the coming year. We have a lot of exciting plans and are hoping at least half of them come off. Needless to say, any of you that know me, know that I will continue pursuing the dream and trying to get my name out there.

This brings me to the headline of this blog. I need your help. You have all been so effective in getting my name out there and in spreading the word on what I am doing. However, I really feel with all the commitment shown by so many of you, we can achieve a lot more. IF WE WORK TOGETHER. So here's my thinking. The one thing we could do is have certain projects where we are all working together. We have had a lot of great ideas by some of you, so if we work in numbers we could achieve these. Rosie O'Donnell clearly knows all about me now. The strength in numbers.
In the past we have called them street teams, and indeed that idea is kinda what we are talking about. However, I rather call it "Operation Paul Byrom". Something we are all a part of. We are not different teams, we are one. One dream, one mission. I need people who are prepared to take the bull by the horns in there local area and try to get my music out there. I know the power of you all. You are all so committed, loyal and genuine. I wouldn't have been able to take a punt on myself if I didnt believe I would have your support. So here I am, asking you to step up. THIS IS THE MOMENT. Are you with me? If so, please email me at OperationPaulByrom@yahoo.com 


I hope to hear from many of you. From all over the world. The more the merrier 


Thank you and God bless

REVIEWS

IRISH DAILY MAIL
"Paul Byrom brilliantly reprises his role here as the evil villain"

IRISH TIMES
"wickedly good Paul Byrom"

IRISH INDEPENDENT
"“Easy listening – which the young love ironically and the old love wholeheartedly – is on an upward curve and ‘Velvet’ which reached No. 2 in the albums charts, may just have been the making of Byrom – this show case performance, featuring a 26 piece orchestra has long been a sell-out.:”


“He does not interpret the music so much as channel it, his voice a dark, lustrous force of nature. Around him, the orchestra conjures a crashing swooning swell; listeners may feel as if they have passed through the silver screen and into a forgotten Hollywood musical.”


Grammy Award winner Julie Gold, composer of "From A Distance":

"BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL.
I LOVED From a Distance and feel you gave it a personal and respectful and unique performance.  THANK YOU for honoring me in such a way.
Gorgeous voice and sweepingly elaborate and beautiful production."


Musical Composer, Frank Wildhorn:

"Love your version of This Is The Moment...great passsion"
