-Paul has just received the "Best Soundtrack " Award from the Fright Night Film Festival for his scoring of the horror movie, Gimme Skelter.

Gimme Skelter, which centers around “the small, fading town of Banion’s Cross is targeted by a group of would-be killers led by Phillip Valentine, who believes he’s the son of Charles Manson.” The movie stars Gunnar (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) Hansen".

Paul has just completed scoring music for another film entitled "Necroville". "The story of a town in New Mexico inexplicably overrun with horrors of the night. But despite the pervasive infestation of Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies, Chupacabra and others, life goes on. Necroville is not a story about the fall of civilization or even a post apocalyptic society, rather, a comedy that takes it a look at how even the worst of horrors can be an everyday commonplace nuisance".

Paul tours up and down the East Coast regularly in the band Angry Johnny and the Killbillies, for whom he performs mandolin, banjo, piano, guitar, and organ. The band's music has been featured in several independent films and the major motion picture, "11:14" starring Hilary Swank. The band's off-kilter Americana sound has also proven popular in Europe; the band's latest album has been released through a major German label, "GemBuzz".

During his travels in 2004, Paul competed in the famous CrossRoads Guitar Contest held annually in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The winner of the guitar showdown, in a head to head playoff style, is determined by the audience. Paul emerged as the 2004 CrossRoads Guitar champion, holding the extra special distinction of winning the guitar contest with his mandolin!

When at home, Paul continues to compose music for independent films and media, as well as classical and spanish style works on the guitar.
