For over ten years he ran a West End theatre in London's Leicester Square (home of the Boy George musical "TABOO”) as well as a successful Ballroom and Latin Dancing Club. He produced a triple platinum selling album for the Japanese band 'Buck Tick' which became number one in their native country and Co-Produced the winning UK entry for Eurovision 2001 held in Copenhagen, for the young Sheffield singer Lindsay Dracass, having a UK top 20 hit at the same time.

In 2009 he returned to live performance with the Scottish Supergroup 'Four Good Men' and then became lead vocalist for XSM ( Ex Simple Minds ) featuring original Simple Minds members Derek Forbes and Brian McGee, who to date have successfully toured the UK, the Philippines, Holland and completed a three week tour of Germany in 2012.

After a lengthy hiatus (some twenty years or so) from solo live performance, he returned to the stage in 2012 once more under the name Owen Paul.

In late 2012 Owen appeared on BBC 1’s Watchdog as part of their ‘rogue traders’ team. He then performed at numerous 80’s festivals throughout the summer of 2013 as a solo artist and also secured a spot as guest DJ on Absolute 80’s radio station. Throughout the year he also continued his working relationship with XSM (Ex Simple Mind) performing at huge outdoor events in both Germany and Holland.
