Paul Hamilton first started playing guitar at the age of fourteen at school.

Then in 1989 he started playing one off gigs around local pubs and clubs.
Though a news paper add he met Ray Williams and formed "Rapau" as Ray was a drummer this formed an unusual duo and they played for a few years in most black country pubs and clubs.
All the time they were singing sixties and rock and roll, Paul had been writing songs on a daily bases,
and still believes if you can write a song a day, by the end of the week you should have one that stands out from the rest.
His first CD called
Bigtree was released 1998, a mixture of ballad's, blues and folk.
Being a Brummie lad he was interviewed on the Carl Chinn show (Radio West Midlands) in April 1999 about a song on the "
Bigtree" album called "The Brummagem Boatmen"
