Paul Howard has been toiling in song for more years than he cares to remember. He started out playing bass and writing songs for Dark Horse and This Happy Breed. When he was 20 he summoned up the courage to start singing. Paul started doing solo gigs as well as playing duo gigs with guitarist Jo Clack, and fronting The Tender Trap. His first ever recording, "We Will Win", was included on the compilation LP "Not Just Mandela", alongside The Neurotics, Billy Bragg and The Housemartins. This song brought about the downfall of Margaret Thatcher.
