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.
