Paul Millns – Songs from ‘A Little Thunder’

Translated into many languages, his songs and music have been used in film, TV and ballet. Paul recently composed specially commissioned music for BBC films, and worked with full orchestra and choir in Russia to produce his PAPILLONS work for ballet, together with Swiss artist Jurg Gabele.
Many other artists have performed and recorded his songs, including ELKIE BROOKS singing “Too much between us” for her hit album ”Pearls 2, and more recently BONNIE TYLER singing “Forget her” on her Free Spirit album

Paul is still writing and touring, and celebrated his 70th birthday in 2015 with a spectacular concert in Goseck, a beautiful castle in Germany with 600 people in attendance. A live album ‘FULL MOON OVER GOSECK’ was released, with Paul’s regular band featuring Butch Coulter on harmonica and guitar, Ingo Rau on bass, and Vladi Kempf on drums. He was joined by long-time friend Nick Pentelow on saxophone and his son Andreas Millns on keyboards.

Recently Paul recorded his 20th album, ‘A LITTLE THUNDER’, a studio CD with 14 new songs, already highly acclaimed in Europe.
