I've already commented on Paul's Christmas album, but I think his new album, 'A Moment in Time' deserves it's own review. It's a nice mix of classical, Broadway, and pop tunes...along with two Phil Coulter originals - 'Scorn Not His Simplicity' which Phil wrote about his own son, and which Paul said he felt very privileged to record. The other is 'Rio Serenade' which Phil wrote especially for Paul!!!

Paul has a magnificent tenor voice, but he is not limited to traditional tenor songs. Each of these pieces has a very special meaning to him, if you are lucky enough to catch one of his solo shows (I was) you will hear the stories for each and every song. I love this man's music, can't wait for another album and another tour!! Check out his version
of the National Anthem which he has performed for the Boston Celtics several times, they keep asking him back - he's a fan favorite there!

Paul Byrom mentioned liking the other videos I made him when I met him, so I created another one. I hope you all enjoy. He's trying to get the song on the promo for tourism to Ireland.

This album really shows off Paul's amazing voice. The title song is very meaningful to him. He feels that this is his moment to go out as a solo performer and make his dream come true. All of the songs on this album have a special meaning for him & if you are lucky enough to see in in concert, he'll tell you a little about each song he sings & why he put it on the album. The Beatles song, All My Loving, is slowed down & for me makes the song so much more meaningful & I liked the Beatles version, I just like Paul's more. Scorn Not His Simplicity, was written by the amazing Phil Coulter & on this album, Phil even plays the piano. Paul does such a wonderful job singing it. My Land is a tribute to Ireland & truely beautiful. Rio Serenade is a fun song & if you see Paul perform it you will get to see Paul's fun side, or as he calls it, him being "Cheesy". The entire ablum is wonderful, so if you don't own a copy, go out & buy one! You will not regret it, trust me!

I have been a fan of Paul's for less than a year. Where have I been? He has the most beautiful tenor voice I have ever heard. His newest album, "This Is The Moment" is an example of where his singing talent lies. I have given quite a few albums to family and friends. He sings our National Anthem better than any American I have ever heard.

I had the pleasure of seeing Paul in Novemeber at his Baltimore show. What an entertainer!! His voice, his Irish charm, wit and humor ... his overall talent is just stupendous. He takes the time to speak to all his fans individually.

Paul is truly blessed with a beautiful voice and I thank him for sharing it.

My daughter got me to listen to Paul's music & he is a tremendous performer. Each song is sung so beautifully. I really enjoy "Scorn Not His Simplicity" which was written by Phil Coulter. Phil even played the piano for Paul on this recording. If you want to be very impressed, be sure to buy this cd!

This Is The Moment is the perfect example of Paul Byrom's
exceptional talent. His Celtic songs are so moving but he
isn't limited to the Celtic genre, all of the songs on this
cd support the statement, "Ireland's Best". The man and his music are on the road to becoming a legend. I hope everyone who is moved by Paul's beautiful voice will pass the word, the world needs to hear this man.

All you have to do is listen to this album to understand what Paul Byrom can do and why we love him and his voice.
All the songs are beautifully sung. Once you hear the first song which is the Title track, you will be hooked.
Have followed Paul from the first time I heard and saw him on Celtic Thunders' first album. He is the one that caught my attention and I fell in love with his voice then and he has only gotten stronger.

I also enjoy Paul's album very much. I own several of the DVD's from his time with Celtic Thunder. He is indeed very entertaining. The song "Tender is the Night", performed with Dierdre Shannon on the Storm DVD is one of the most beautiful I have seen done.

The album is fantastic. The concert was amazing! Paul is very personable and funny. He's so sweet. He came out to the lobby after the show and signed items for the fans. He has a wonderful voice and such talent. I would gladly go again.
