Thank you so much for the great performance. Several residents came to me on my return to tell me how much fun they had and what a great performer you were. I heard you started warming up an hour early, before your official start time. You gave some of our residents an activity to do where we had none. I also heard that some of the residents stayed the entire time. Amazing.. because just an hour is a long time for them to stay seated and focused no matter what the activity. So thank you and please let me know when you are back so we can schedule.

Take care,

“Paul has been playing at our assisted living community for two years now and comes almost monthly to entertain, and entertain he does! He is interactive, exciting and has been known to learn a song or two for our residents. He puts a fun spin on any song and clearly loves what he's doing. I highly suggest him!”

"Out of 400 million people in America; Pinchas Toshner is the only frum baal teshuva from Scotland, singer songwriter. 

Uplifting thoughts, could be serious, could be funny, could be both, combined with music. The only musician who can really relate whats in frumkeit to the non religious."

-Jacob Applebam

Paul presents a new twist bringing ideas in song with insights gathered in an entertaining and informative program. He has an “element of variety” in what is a uniquely loose but still formulaic approach. I believe he is is a cut above the rest."

“You wrote most of these songs

didn’t you?

-Live quotes (YouTube videos)

“It’s Beatles, it’s u2, its Bob Dylan, Lenny Kravitz and Billy Joel, its jazz – you write this style and that style– you have obviously been influenced by all the songs you have been playing through the years. The world would welcome something like this now with open arms, the songs are timeless,

it’s an album like Sgt Pepper”. 

-Orna Wellman

drama and English teacher, Canada

​"Really good solid organic original material, 

it has to be experienced live, they’re not simple in terms of structure nor in terms of emotional content."

-Miguel Cavazos, session drummer, LA

The epitome of British pop a la Toshner! Light, serious, fun.

Paul's songs are alive, you have to live with them. Paul also sets the standard, when it comes to camaraderie, and healthy artistic sharing."
