Paul started his musical journey in 1991. A classmate from HAVO wanted to start a band, writing and performing their own songs and was looking for a bass player. Paul exchanged the electric guitar for a bass.
After years of playing in that band, he started studying bass guitar at the Tilburg and Rotterdam conservatory.
Nowadays Paul works as a bass player with Tineke Schouten and cover band Blend-It. He also works as a coach at the Artist In Progress course at Brainport Music Experience Centre and often plays as a session bass player with various bands and projects.
