Paul Dutton was 14 when making 'Paul Sings Vol 2' and at that time was Head Chorister of Leeds Parish Church Choir. A Leeds boy and a pupil of Leeds Grammar School, he has been a member of Leeds Parish Church Choir for six years, where he has contributed many hundreds of solos; by his recordings and recital tours with the choir he has achieved national recognition.
Paul's solo recitals have taken him to many parts of the country and he has also been engaged as a soloist in oratorio performances, most notable being Handel's "Messiah" at the Tivoli Gardens Hall, Copenhagen. He has appeared on television, being the youngest artist ever to be seen onthe international programme, "The Good Old Days" and has also broadcast. His outstanding talents have prompted composers to write works for him, but it is in the recording field that he has particularly excelled, his recordings on the Abbey label roving extremely popular.
