Paul founded and built Tree Sound 30+ years ago with one distinct mission in mind: “Educate the world on the importance of sustainable living and the impact of conscious consumerism through the power of music.” To that end, he has recorded with Outkast, Elton John, Whitney Houston and countless others, all on sustainable and solar powered energy. With 2015 marking 25 years in business, Paul is still searching for and finding new ways to improve the quality of sound and awareness of preserving the planet through his several other counterparts: Rockstar Farms, Tree Power & Sound, and Tree Leaf Music.
