Paul Byrom's concert tour took him to New York City's B.B. Kings Blues Club and Grill on November 18, 2011. BroadwayWorld brings you photo coverage from the performance below.

As a classically trained singer, Paul Byrom brings his spectacular voice to an impressive range of material on his latest album, THIS IS THE MOMENT, which includes semi-classical material, Irish-inflected song and unique interpretations of popular songs as diverse as Bette Midler's "From A Distance" to a unique ballad interpretation of The Beatles "All My Loving." Two compositions by songwriter/producer/recording artist extraordinaire Phil Coulter, who was musical director/composer for Celtic Thunder and whose songs have been recorded by Sinead O'Connor, Van Morrison and Elvis, among others, are highlights.

Paul Byrom's vocal talent drew the attention at an early age. Born in Dublin, he began voice study and training when he was just seven years old and went on to study as a tenor under the legendary Dr. Veronica Dunne, Ireland's leading lady of opera and renowned vocal teacher. A thorough grounding in classical technique gave Paul a strong foundation as a vocalist. He was a professional singer by his early teens and recorded his first album, as a boy soprano, when he was just 14. A second album, VELVET, was released in Ireland in 2005 and hit #2 in the Irish music charts. As a result, Paul made many appearances on Irish television and radio, including
CELEBRITY JIGS AND REELS, a dance-concept show similar to Dancing With The Stars. A Christmas album by Paul even hit the Billboard Classical chart.

Paul's talent has already taken him far and wide. Some of the many highights of his career to date include performing for such dignitaries as President Barack Obama, Irish President Mary McAleese, Emperor Akihito of Japan, former Irish President and UN Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson and many others. Paul, who is an avid sports fan, has performed at such high-profile sporting events as a Pittsburgh Steelers football game, six All-Ireland Soccer Finals in Dublin, the world famous Barcelona soccer team, and is now a regular performer for the Boston Celtics basketball games.
