My love for music began as a kid listening to my Grandmother teaching piano & John Peel on the Radio.
Music was all around me growing up, I rose through the school wind band ranks & become lead alto sax, then a session musician, Portuguese Punk band member, Hornblower movie extra, then Expo '98 in Lisbon, Portugal I worked with David Byrne (Talking Heads) in front of a 5,000 strong crowd & fronted the after show open air party, became a regular night club House Saxman, touring with Fatima Lopes catwalk Fashion Shows.
Since 2010 MTV have used my music cues.
My passion for music will never die.
Some people say I make the "most extraordinary and outrageous music" & I sound like a "mix of Brazilian/Techno/Studio 54" & "MTV love u baby".
I was classically trained on Alto Sax, Flute & Keyboards (Royal Schools of Music, London). I've always had a fascination for combining tech & music in the studio.
In recent years I've worked with local Rochester musicians on multiple projects.

New York - Paul Farrell makes the most extraordinary and outrageous music. The sound is a mixture of Brazilian/Techno meets Studio 54. Truly the greatest sound I’ve heard in many years. Not the typical dance music. You really want to move your body when you hear it. Paul has been musically inclined since he was a mere 9 years old. He was classically trained on Alto Sax, Flute and Keyboards. He has toured Europe many times. After that he became a session musician for various studios. More recently he began producing artists in New York. His accomplishments have been many. He performed improve sax with David Byrne's band (Talking Heads) and played with 2 percussionists & a DJ at Expo ’98 in an after show party in Lisbon, Portugal to 5,000 people. He worked with Portuguese fashion designer, Fatima Lopes. The title track off his new EP, “Heaven”, makes him feel so excited. As he states, “too good to be true!!”. Paul’s delight with how his life turned out is witnessed through his music. The lightness, playful feel of this EP is contagious. You can’t help feeling his joy when you listen to his music. The sound of percussion, heavy beats - and most unique of all is the vocalist he uses. You need to listen to this one! Released in digital format and physical format.
It is truly a re-birth of Paul Of Creation.
