Before I interviewed Paul Murray, I didn't know anything about him but once I discovered his amazing journey in music, I was keen to have a chat with him.  He lives in Wembley, London but his parents are Irish. His Dad hails from Co Armagh and his late mum came from Co Monaghan. At just 6 years of age Paul remarkably sang at Roundwood Park in London in front of 60,000 alongside Big Tom. He'd then , still aged 6 go on to record a duet with the legendary Castleblaney singer, a song called 'Sunday's Child'; Written by the late great Irish songwriter Johnny McCauley.  A man Paul got to know very well over the years. Paul played in Johnny's band too which was called 'Green Country'. He talks in depth about his great friendship with Johnny and reflects on his memories of being around the great Tom McBride. Paul also talks about some of the songs he's written, including one which was inspired by his daughter in relation to dreaming. This song would go on to win Paul and Darren Nash a major award in the USA. I hope you enjoy the interview!
