ABOUT PAUL BYRON

Paul Byrom is often hailed as one of Ireland’s premier tenors. From an early age his special vocal talent brought him to the attention of music coaches and talent spotters. The Dublin-born tenor began voice training when he was just seven years old and went on to study as a tenor under the legendary Dr. Veronica Dunne, Ireland’s leading lady of opera and a renowned vocal teacher.

He became a professional singer by the age of 12 when cast in his first opera with the National Concert Orchestra of Ireland and recorded his first album “The Golden Voice” as a boy soprano at 14. His second release, entitled VELVET, was in 2005 and reached #2 in the Irish music charts. Paul went on to release his Christmas album entitled “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” in 2008, which charted in the Classical Billboard Charts.

His talent as a tenor has taken him far and wide, and some of the many highlights of his career to date include performing for many dignitaries such as Irish President Mary McAleese, Emperor Akihito of Japan, Former Irish President and UN Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson and most recently for United States President, Barack Obama.

In 2007 Paul became one of the original soloists in the show Celtic Thunder. He has since left the production and his latest album “THIS IS THE MOMENT” debuted at No.1 on the World Billboard Charts.

In March 2013, he filmed his first solo TV special for Public Television called “THIS IS THE MOMENT LIVE” in Pennsylvania with his orchestra, and musical director Phil Coulter. The show is now airing throughout the United States on Public Television, with later broadcasts in other regions soon to follow.
