Paul Speare

I play saxophones and flute, specialising in baritone sax.
I also record and produce music at my home studio using ProTools.

In the past I was a member of Dexys Midnight Runners and played on the album Too-Rye-Ay (1982) as well as the singles from it: Come On Eileen, Jackie Wilson Said and The Celtic Soul Brothers. Later on I played on much of the Elvis Costello album Punch The Clock (1983) as one of the TKO Horns, and toured with him in the USA, Europe and the UK. I have worked as a session musician for various artists throughout my professional life.

For a number of years I worked in the further education sector as a lecturer and course leader in music, music technology and radio production at various colleges.

My main musical interest these days is in the area of contemporary jazz and I am still active in that field of music as a musician, composer and producer.
