In the autumn of 2014 Paul was called upon to play drums for B.Dolan, a highly respected American hip hop artist being released on Scroobius Pip’s own record label ‘Speech Development Records’. Paul will continue to work with Scroobius Pip, B.Dolan and other artists associated with Speech Development records.
