Who is Paul Tuthill?

Paul was born in 1974 and spent the first months of his life in a children’s home in Dublin. After being successfully placed with his new adopted family it quickly became apparent his interest in all things musical. At the age of seven Paul started to learn to play the accordion, which was seen to be pretty old fashioned. After school was completed an unsuccessful attempt was made at third level education. At this stage Paul was performing with several bands doing gigs all over Ireland.

In 1994 Paul moved to Germany where a hectic few years were enjoyed working the music circuit around Europe. It was at this stage that Paul first played in Switzerland where he lived for a year and is to this day one of his favorite places to work and enjoy time with the family.

In 1999 Paul bought his first bar, the well known music venue in Frankfurt called An Sibin. It was a roaring success where many touring performers attended after show parties until the early hours. Paul turned An Sibin into a popular location in Frankfurt for live music and private events. Another more DJ orientated bar was open in 2002. A few years later just before the football world cup Paul and his future wife sold both venues and moved to Marbella.

Working for a travel magazine would never have even crossed Paul’s mind, but that is exactly what he did. He also did some free lance work for Socoial and Personal Magazine in Dublin as well as Essential Marbella and High Society Magazine. Music was never far away though and landed a job managing a radio station called Linx FM. It was a nice change from the hectic days and nights Frankfurt.

In 2005 Seabreeze Productions approached Paul and asked him to work on a series of concerts on the Costa del Sol.  Working for Andy Cotton from TAO on these events proved to be invaluable later in his career. It was a fantastic job which gave him the opportunity to work with Lenny Kravitz, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Jamiroquai. Paul learned a lot working at this level with the best people in the business. Seabreeze Productions came to a rather sudden end with the untimely death of John Colletta the director of the company. Paul then took a PR job for a London based marketing firm. It was an interesting job with projects in Dubai, Sardinia, Milan and the Caribbean. This gave more invaluable experience working with clients in different countries.

In 2008 after the birth of their daughter Coco, Paul and his wife returned to Germany where Paul set up Craggy Entertainment and later Craggy Hush! Working around the world Paul has gained a lot of experience dealing with different types of client making him a solid choice for your event.

Paul and his family really value free time together and enjoy traveling especially to southern Spain and Switzerland.
