Writing, playing and recording his unique, melodic and lyrical blend of acoustically led pop rock, PJ's career began with the Irish band No Sweat, with whom he achieved his first number one hit. "Heart and Soul" debuted in his native Ireland and went on to chart well in Europe and the U.S...
PJ has steadily made a name for himself within the music industry as both a brilliant songwriter and performer. His credits include the much acclaimed "To Be Alive", co-written with Vivian Campbell and featured on Def Leppard's "Euphoria" album, as well as the song "He's A Cowboy" on country artist Mark Wills' 2003 release "And The Crowd Goes Wild".
Other band credits include The Search, Toe (with Tonic's Dan Lavery), and Clock, a band comprised of drummer Mark Schulman (Cher, Billy Idol), bassist Sasha Krivstov (Rock Star: INXS house band), and guitarist Vivian Campbell (Dio, Whitesnake, Riverdogs, Def Leppard).
