Tania, Velvetones, Bands With Paul Ibrahm

Paul and I knew each other when we were young. The connecting link was this group called THE VELVETONES.  We were neighbours - that's how band boys got together sometimes - and gathered some evenings to sing with this band. Our focus was a huge bungalow across the narrow road from the former Chief Minister Lim Yew Hock's corner house at Sims Avenue. We gathered there time and again. And I met Paul.

Paul is as good with his voice as he is with his wits. A naturally quiet person he only gives his lot when he sings and performs on stage. From ballads to rock, Paul Ibrahm carries a song well. Now you know why he's with TANIA. 

We lost contact for many years; I kept on looking for him. We're in touch now. Thanks Paul for saying hello with such fantastic pictures.

The question here is, which one is Paul and what were the bands that he used to play and sing with?
