Paul Christopher

As a long-time singer and percussionist playing top U.S. casinos, Paul Christopher is used to basking in the glow of the spotlight. Born in Guyana, Paul was exposed to music early in his life and moved to Canada as a young adult to pursue a rofessional career in music.

His musical influences have allowed him to develop a smooth crooning style that ranges from Latin, to Funk, to R&B and Jazz. He had spent 15 years opening for American show biz heavies like Bill Cosby, Bob Newhart, Don Rickles, and Joan Rivers before concentrating on his own studio career in Toronto.

He has since recorded a number of albums, his most popular being the Adult Contemporary hit “Love and Other Obsessions” which was co-written and co-produced by former Kim Mitchell band member Greg Critchley.
