Paul Strummer - Live Covers Repertoire

"Live-looped electro-acoustic contemporary R&B singer-songwriter from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, UK. As well as performing his own songs, Paul has many unexpected cover versions of well-known catchy pop/soul/rock songs from past to present in his repertoire too."
