Listing Detail Tabs

Citing his influences as Spike Milligan, David Brent, Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan, his experiences traveling the world and diving beneath the ocean, Gerry Paul is a songwriter with a passion for quirky and wacky songs. All of this has manifested itself into a collection of ten children's songs called 'Tales From the Sea & An Elephant Tree'.

The album moves through the hip hop grooves of "Workin' On The Worm Farm", the Rockabilly shuffle of "Hank The Wrestling Shark", the Tom Waits-esque "Terrible Land Where All Bullies Go", to the Sergeant Pepper's type brass arrangements on "Charlie The Cannibal Green Pepper".

With the musical boasts and zany humour in this all original album, the non-age-segregated sound will appeal to kids and arrested adolescents.

Some of the amazing musicians featured on this album include Grammy Award Winner (and Mark Knopfler sideman), Tim O'Brien, Ireland's best known traditional musician, Sharon Shannon, Tom Jones' backing vocalists, Emily & Jessica Staveley-Taylor, Bill Shanley (Ray Davies' Guitarist), Éamonn de Barra on keyboards (Damien Dempsey/Slide) and Dave Hingerty on drums (The Swell Season/The Frames).

There is a co-write with Stephen Housden of the Little River Band, and Gerry co-produced the album with bassist Trevor Hutchinson (The Waterboys).

Track one of the album, "Hank The Wrestling Shark", was awarded the 2010 Grand Prize in the prestigious international John Lennon Songwriting Competition, a coveted award among songwriters.
