Welcome to the Official Site of Paul Byrom,
an ambassador for culture and music for The Gathering 2013
Paul Byrom is often hailed as Ireland's premier tenor and with good reason. From an early age his special vocal talent brought him the attention of music coaches and talent spotters. The Dublin-born tenor began voice study and 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 was a professional singer by his early teens and Paul recorded his first album as a boy soprano at 14. His second release, entitled VELVET, was in 2005 and it reached #2 in the Irish music charts. This led to many appearances on Irish Television and Radio, including "Celebrity Jigs and Reels" where he reached the grand final. 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.
Paul is an avid sports fan and he has also performed at many large-scale and high profile sporting events such as six All-Ireland Finals in Croke Park, Dublin, International rugby games in Landsdowne Road and the new Aviva Stadium, Dublin, for the Pittsburgh Steelers American Football team at Heinz Field in the US.For the world and european club Champions football team, Barcelona. He is very proud now to be a regular at the TD Garden, for the Boston Celtics basketball team and most recently performed for the famous Phillies!
In 2007 Paul was invited to join Celtic Thunder as one of the five soloists. "I was thrilled to join Celtic Thunder and get the chance to work with Phil Coulter again" says Paul. " I have had a lot of fun making the show's and it was very exciting bringing them to new audiences around the world."
Fans call Byrom "The Swanky Tenor" for his suave and romantic style in performing, which is stamped on such numbers in Celtic Thunder as "Remember Me, Recuerde Me" and "She".
He has since left the production and released his latest album "THIS IS THE MOMENT" which debuted at No.1 on the World Billboard Charts, followed by his first solo tour of North America. It's safe to say, Paul has gone from strength to strength. "I am truly excited about what lies ahead for me, but I know I've made a lot of friends along the way who never let me walk alone"
2013 is already proving to be an exciting year for the Dublin born tenor. Tourism Ireland recently asked Paul to be "The Gathering ambassador for culture and music". He along with other well known Irish faces in music will spread the word about Ireland and the great reasons to return home during this year of "THE GATHERING"
