So since posting here about OPB (Operation Paul Byrom), I have received overwhelming amounts signing up. It is pretty amazing to see so many willing to help from what has now become the four corners of the earth. It was an idea that I wasn't sure of working, but we have got off to a flying start, and let me tell all who have signed up. you are part of an exciting and very effective group. I am always delighted to see little fan groups on Facebook and Twitter as it is hugely flattering, However, OPB is about getting things done and getting my music out there.
Our first two missions were about local publications and radio stations. I gathered all the information received and mailed them all individually. The response has been very very favourable and indeed enthusiastic, with bookings for radio interviews coming in thick and fast. This is without doubt the most effective way of building up support.
As the interviews or appearances come in, I will be posting them on the "News and Events" section here on the website.
I always said that the only way my solo career was going to pick up, would be by getting airplay. This is now happening thanks to so many of you.
There is a lot done, and a hell of a lot more to do. I really believe we have a great system now and I think we can achieve an awful lot.
When I was with Celtic Thunder, getting promotion was easy as I was part of a big production with the backing of a major label and indeed a well oiled machine. So going solo and not having that has proven to be an eye opener as to how to get any notice. Needless to say, now through OPB, I am building up some great contacts with very positive results.

All I wanted to say was Thank You, and lets keep trucking along. There are many things in the pipeline that I am hoping will come off. All of which I cant say anything about right now, but be sure and know that I am not resting on my laurels and as soon as anything comes in, you will all be the first to know.

Who knows whats around the corner, but whatever it is, I look forward to facing it all with you by my side!

Keep well and healthy

  4. Ok, boss. Think you have got a good thing going here having everyone working together! Not going to be easy, but it will pay off in the long run. We want to get you out there following your dream. Let's do it. Hugs


  5. Paul,
    As soon as the whirlwind of assisting certain CT stars going solo in Philadelphia has settled down, I will be at your command, my Leige! They too must do their own promotions!
    Cheers! Maggie Costello

  7. Paul, I was attending Keith's performance in Conway, Arkansas at AETN & they would love to have you come and perform. 501-450-1750 i was talking with Mona Dixon COO & DoD Hoping OPB goes well for you!

  8. Come up to BC, Canada! We'll be there with groupies to hear you sing. and in true Canadian fashion, you'd probably get invites for dinner, salmon fishing, mountain climbing and whale watching! Keep posting your songs, we'll keep passing them on. Good Luck!

  9. It feels so good to be part of this promotion, Paul. It would be great to hear you on the air in New Hampshire. I have my fingers crossed. YNWA :)

  10. Wonderful hearing things are going good!

  11. Paul, You are the best. Got my merchandise today but was disappointed that the shirt was not personalized. Thought you were going to do that unless asked not to. Color me sad :0( It I returned it to you would you sign it for me? Or, do I need to buy another one? Love to hear from you.
