Paul Honey

Paul has enjoyed a highly varied career, working as a composer, arranger, performer, musical director and producer. He started his musical life as a chorister, singing daily in the choir of Westminster Abbey. After leaving university, he worked extensively in Jazz and World Music, performing and broadcasting around the world. As a composer, he has written for commercials (AEG, The AA, Barnado's), television (Brum and the BAFTA-nominated Boohbah) and independent film. In 2007 he formed a creative partnership with the violinist Dermot Crehan. The result was a collection of traditional Irish tunes and new compositions for Soloists and Orchestra, and the album 'Toss The Feathers' in 2009. At present Paul is working on a commission for violin and choir with the poet Gregory Warren Wilson.
