Bio of Paul Robert Thomas, Song Lyricist
My name is Paul Robert Thomas (a.k.a. Paul Thomas a.k.a. 'Paul Lyricist') & I am a song lyricist (try saying that after a few beers! I was born & grew up in North London with Camden Town, Swiss Cottage, Primrose Hill & Regents Park as my playgrounds and in my teens I would sell hotdogs outside the famous Roundhouse in Chalk Farm where I met many famous personalities including Andy Warhol.
I have some Welsh blood in me too as my mother & grandmother was from Wales. I now live and work out of a place called Holon which is just outside of Tel-Aviv and I have a home in Swiss Cottage in London too.
I am a former London PC who took the Metropolitan Police to court in a landmark case and I beat them for their illegal racist treatment of me and also changed the English Race Relations Laws in so doing.
I am always writing song lyrics and I will consider working with any artist, singer or band - established or not, wishing to add music to my lyrics & turn them into songs. I really don't care if you are famous or not, as long as you can make music & think you can make a good song from my lyrics with the aim of releasing the songs on an album or as downloads.
I believe that the act of creation, in this instance - creating songs, is a gift from God or a higher spirit!
My musical & lyrical roots are drawn from English Folk, American Folk & Blues, Christian/Gospel with influences from English nursery rhymes and church hymns.
I have worked with/for/met many famous people from The Queen to Presidents and I'm really not easily impressed by titles - what matters most is who you are, not what you are or what title you hide behind! I will consider working with any artist as long as they are honest, polite and considerate and can make good music (no matter what type of music) - these are the main traits I look for in a song collaboration and I work with artists from all over the globe irrespective of race, gender or religious views. I will only work with people who have manners and are looking to share 50/50 - I detest and have no time for those many in the 'music world' who are looking to make a 'fast buck' on the back of someone else!
