His second release, entitled VELVET, was in 2005 and it reached #2 in the Irish music charts. This led to many appearances on Irish Television and Radio, including "Celebrity Jigs and Reels" where he reached the grand final. Paul went on to release his Christmas album, "I'll Be Home For Christmas," in 2008, which charted in the Classical Billboard Charts. His talent as a tenor has taken him far and wide, and some of the many highlights of his career to date include performing for many dignitaries such as Irish President Mary McAleese, Emperor Akihito of Japan, Former Irish President and UN Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson and most recently for United States President, Barack Obama. Paul is an avid sports fan and has performed at many large-scale and high profile sporting events such as six All-Ireland Finals in Croke Park, Dublin, International rugby games in Landsdowne Road and the new Aviva Stadium, Dublin, for the Pittsburgh Steelers American Football team at Heinz Field in the U.S., and for the world and european club Champions football team, Barcelona.
He is very proud now to be a regular at the TD Garden for the Boston Celtics basketball team and most recently for the famous Phillies baseball team! In 2007 Paul was invited to join Celtic Thunder as one of the five soloists. "I was thrilled to join Celtic Thunder and get the chance to work with Phil Coulter again," says Paul. "I have had a lot of fun making the shows and it was very exciting bringing them to new audiences around the world." Fans call Byrom "The Swanky Tenor" for his suave and romantic style in performing, which is stamped on such numbers in Celtic Thunder as "Remember Me, Recuerde Me" and "She." He has since left the production and released his latest album "THIS IS THE MOMENT" which debuted at No.1 on the World Billboard Charts, followed by his first solo tour of North America. It's safe to say, Paul has gone from strength to strength.
"I am truly excited about what lies ahead, and I know I've made a lot of friends along the way who will never let me walk alone."
