More about that in the coming weeks. Special thanks to EPE' Marlowe's' The Tigerman Dojo' Laffeyette's' The Doubletree Hotel, Yesterday Once More and The Days Inn at Graceland. Not forgetting the Legendary Sun Studio. Colin Recorded a total of 29 songs. Colin said To be in Sun Studio Recording where legends were born and Rock 'n' Roll History was made is unbelievable. You can feel the vibes and its like all the photos in the place come alive and make you feel at ease. I never expected to get through a dozen songs let alone 29. all songs are currently being mixed down' then its the process of choosing which songs actually go on the cd. The Songs that don't make it onto disk will be available in a special download version of the album. Track Listings will be posted here asap and hopefully a release before December.

Happy New Year 2nd January 2022

2022 Marks quite a milestone in my life and career. In June I will be celebrating my 60th Birthday and on May 7th it will be 40 years since I first stepped out onto a stage, and from what was the start of the most fantastic career. I have had such amazing times with both my bands The Stormbeats (1988 - 1995) and The Persuaders (1995 to present) Even now I'm always looking for the next move in my career, I have played the most awsome venues along with the best bands, entertainers and DJs on the circuit and I have met the most amazing people (you). I have mingled with the stars and worked for the best promotors and friends in the business including Kelvin Ford, Diane Wardle, Sandy Rice, Paul Down, Markus Henfling, Bob Ling amongst others. I have been lucky enough to perform in Memphis these past 21 years and my family and I have met the most amazing people who are now lifelong friends and family to us.

Now for the future. It starts this Tuesday 4th January as I return to Memphis to meet-up with some very special people in my life and of course pay my respects to the guy who made it all possible for me to get up on that stage in the first place.

I recently realised I have recorded 50 albums, so there will be no new albums this year, although I will still be recording some great original material written by Geoff Taggart, Toni West and Jim Newcombe for radio stations world wide and putting the songs out on social media for you all to hear. The song I am learning at the moment and recording on my return from the states is a fantastic song written by Geoff and Toni called Dancing With a Stranger. Your gonna love it. The next album release will be in early 2023 with an album recorded in Sun Studio. The Persuaders and I are looking at recording a new album towards the end of the year also for a 2023 release. More news on this very soon. Please remember most albums are available to purchase online.

There will be some very special shows in what seems to be (hopefully) a busy and healthy year for us all.

So either solo or with The Persuaders. I can confirm there will be some great shows as always at Rock n Roll venues and weekenders up and down the UK and of course with Yesterday Once More including a Trip to Memphis in August and my life long dream to visit Hawaii. Including a special Aloha From Hawaii show too. Look out for a special ad soon live from Memphis.

An anniversary show for Elvis Week at Hemsby with The Persuaders and 3 great Billy Fury wkds. Not forgetting many shows in the UK, Spain and hopefully Germany in December. Speaking of December my annual Christmas show at St Martin's is on December 8th and will feature for the first time a choir, can't wait for that. Please checkout our website and gig guide for all details of upcoming shows and albums available . Please keep checking back here for updates.

So whether it's 40 years or 60 years that I'm celebrating, the future looks bright ahead , see you all very soon love Colin Paul x
