Paul - Anthony - Young started his career in groups like Kat Cool, Streetband or Q-Tips which occur throughout the United Kingdom. In 1983, tired of performing in formations without real scope, he then embarked on a solo career, especially to pay tribute to his idols. A first time with a tribute to Marvin Gaye through his cover of "Wherever i lay my hat" then with Jack Lee through his cover of "Come back and stay". And the miracle takes place, the successes are linked. Paul Young will reach consecration in 1985 with "Every time you go away" by Daryl Hall and John Oates which will become one of the biggest planetary hits of the time. A few less prolific years will follow. It will be necessary to wait for the year 1991 so that they find the summits thanks to the song "Senza una donna" which he interprets in duet with Zucchero. Since then the artist prefers to take care of his family without completely abandoning the music. Discography (among others ...) :
