Originally from the U.K this smooth versatile artist/writer will dazzle you with his eclectic soul vibe. P Bailey had his first taste of musical aspiration while taking part in music class. In grade school Principal Miss Johnston was impressed by his musical sense and encouraged him to continue. Early Influences were Muscle Shoals and Motown, as well as Stevie Wonder. With no formal training Bailey developed his singing and writing style by listening to his favourite artists of the day, including Michael Jackson, Prince, and James Brown. During a chance meeting at a popular nightclub in Montreal, Paul met members of the Stone City Band and forwarded a demo. Super star Rick James later used a sample of the song ‘Part Time Lover’ on the soundtrack of the movie Colours. His next break came while doing session work where P met DJ Robby Demlakian who co-produced his single called ‘Get On Board’ performed By his group Walter PPK. The song went on to hit number 3 on the house charts in the UK and eventually won him his first Professional Publisher & Songwriter’s Award from Factor.
