Paul JarmanPaul began performing at the age of four, inheriting a keen interest in music from two generations of his family; on one side, classical and jazz, and on the other, country folk. Now accomplished on over twenty instruments Paul works as a composer and producer as well as performer with many arts groups including Sydney Dance Company, Colin Offord, The Renaissance Players, Sydney Children's Choir and Rainbow Circus. 

Through music, Jarman celebrates a deep understanding of Australian culture and history, from ancient traditions to contemporary issues, migrant journeys, personal stories of achievement, the sounds of a vast landscape. Paul is a Musica Viva performing artist and cultural ambassador for the Department of Foreign Affairs with Australia's own Sirocco. 

Paul has composed music for some of Australia's most unique events including the Centenary of Federation, the Bicentenary of the Battle of Vinegar Hill, Year of the Outback, the Olympic Arts Festival, the Rugby World Cup and the Australia Day Spectacular. 

Paul is most well known for his choral music and original lyrics, commissioned by ensembles including Gondwana Voices, Sing NSW, the Sydney Children's Choir, Birralee Voices, The Department of Education, and Leichhardt Espresso Chorus.
