Based in Sheffield - 6pc - Jazz/Swing - From £1500
There are many things that separate Paul Pashley from the ‘Just another jazz singer’ box, not least the spine tingling magical voice.
The quality in Pashley’s voice is unmistakable and wherever he goes he leaves a lasting impression. The voice is amazingly strong, he has great tone, diction and natural phrasing, through this many frequently liken him to even that of Sinatra.
Still after this there is more from this guy! He possesses a rare vocal versatility enabling him to effortlessly move notes and lighten tones when approaching classics such as for example Monroe’s ‘Softly As I Leave You’. Crossing over musical genres is something that Pashley seems to do with ease when called upon.
Born and raised in Sheffield, but with a deep Italian heritage, Paul Pashley is an irresistible blend of down to earth working class lad with dark smouldering looks. He has worked hard for all he has achieved so far and is keen to add his own footsteps to a city that has already brought us great artists such as Joe Cocker, Paul Carrack, Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Human League and many more.
When Paul started out professionally he toured Europe and the UK with big bands, ‘The Kings Of Swing’ and has previously fronted ‘The Memphis Belle’ mesmerising audiences and promoting his name. The venues include some of the biggest theatres the UK has to offer creating an ideal platform to increase his profile and quickly growing fan base as he interprets an array of classics in his own way. For many that have seen him perform, he is the UK’s real answer to the Vancouver crooner Michael Buble.
Paul’s talent caused cause quite a stir and he quickly gaining critical acclaim through his live performances. As well as this, Paul is also building up an impressive list of corporate clients, providing them with outstanding entertainment. In the summer of 2008 Paul was flown to Italy to perform the wedding of Manchester United soccer star Wayne Rooney.
A confident but modest guy, there is nothing he enjoys more than playing live and he always takes the time after shows to meet and greet his audience.
Paul Pashley is available for concerts, tours, corporate events, weddings, parties, etc. Paul prefers to appear with his 6-piece band which is expandable to accommodate various budgets.

A young man that could really hit the mark with the looks and vocal ability to back it up.
his is a young talent to watch, he should go far.
To have 350 people on their feet during dinner and applauding just 5 lines into your opening number sent a chill down my spine.
A young, charming, handsome kid…with a voice that women will fight over, a voice that could be confused for being that of the King of the crooners, Frank Sinatra… our clients were certainly flying.
Effortless deliver of the ballads, the blues and the big band numbers was a spectacle to see and pure brilliance. Natural rapport and oodles of stage presence.
