Today, an interview recorded by Paul with Michael’s Music Blog in Atlanta, Georgia, was published to YouTube.

The interview lasts around 40 minutes and covers a wide variety of topics including Paul’s upbringing, his experience studying orchestral percussion as a teenager and subsequent career as a professional percussionist and Paul’s take on the current state of the music business as it relates to independent artists.

Originally the initial part of the interview was intended as a warm-up, but Michael felt that some points raised were worth including. So you may find some repetition in here as the “warm up” is also shown.
