Paul FLUSH was born in Newcastle (in the North of England) and encouraged to study music by his father, a well known violinist. At 16 he left school to work in the country's top nightclubs, and played for many famous performers of the period including Billy ECKSTINE,Tony HANCOCK, Nancy WILSON, and The FOUR TOPS. After this period of practical experience, he went on to gain diplomas from the London College of Music and The Guildhall School of Music, and this interest in more serious composition and performance has continued to influence his later work.The North of England was for many years the source of much important musical experience including radio and T.V broadcasting. From 1978 to 1983 Paul worked for TFM Radio producing live music sessions, writing and performing many commercials and jingles, and he was responsible for the writing, arranging and production of complete ident packages for several commercial radio stations including TFM, Viking Radio, and RTHK in Hong Kong. He also played on many of THE TUBE sessions providing the playback recordings for visiting Americans such as Eddie GRANT, Grandmaster MEL and Eartha KITT. Even MADONNA's 'Holiday' had to be re-recorded for the programme!
