He attended the Wolmers Boys School and finish his studies at the University of Technology (UTECH)where he study Hotel management, he was also a very good swimmer represented Jamaica in Water Polo.
He paid his dues with lots of hard work in the Dancehall/Reggae industry even before his major international break.
The major hits that he produced at home and was in regular rotation on radio stations and at Parties, songs like "Baby Girl" and Infiltrate.
Paul's major break on to the international scene did not came until 2002 when he record the hit single "Gimme the Light" on the Atlantic Label for producer Troyton on the Dutty Rock album. This single did well in the USA, UK and Europe.
He released "We Be Burnin" and the whole world started hearing about him.
In his home country Jamaica, he was not getting the same recognition
because most of the people were saying that he was an Uptown Artiste and
most people in Jamaica thought that Dancehall is for the Ghetto people
and its a Ghetto thing.
After Sean released of the album "Dutty Rock" which did very well for him he was now the artiste everyone wants to do collaborations with.
This led him to do collaborations with Beyonce Knowles (baby boy) and Blu Cantrel (breathe) just to name a few, both of these collabs were major hits.
He has since release albums "Trinity" and "Imperial Blaze" both of which was nominated for best reggae album for the Grammy Awards.
In 2004 he hit the jackpot when he won the Grammy for best Reggae Album "Dutty Rock". He lost the Grammy to Stephen Marley when Imperial blaze was nominated.
He has also won favorite pop/rock artiste for 2006, MTV Romania Music awards for best international artiste 2007.
He is still not getting the ratings in his homeland for the hard work done in producing good quality music and promoting Dancehall and reggae Music world wide.
