After Aldo’s hit single Fantasy went to #3 on the charts, Paul’s career kicked off on the road as a touring musician. He then went on to play, tour and record with bands such as Alice Cooper, Winger, Steve PerryJohn Waite, and Tommy Shaw.  Paul also wrote chart-topping songs for both Winger and Steve Perry.

More recently, Paul has been involved with composing music for TV and film. He’s written over 200 songs for television, including the main title for Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. Currently, Paul is living in Nashville where he is producing talented new artists, such as Meghan Linsey (of Steel Magnolia), and writing up a storm!
