Since his 2019 debut release Friends Confused, Paj (as in Paj Mahal) was chosen by 2FM for the ‘Play the Picnic’ stage at Electric Picnic & placed on Spotify’s editorial playlist 'A breath of Fresh Eire'.
Paj has lived in America, Brazil & West Africa and his output reflects a hybrid of acoustic global music & soulful modern-day digital crossover.
In November 2019 Paj released his warmly received debut EP Pastel.
“Brilliant track” - BBC NI - Across The Line
“very tasty stuff” - District Magazine
"One of the best EPs released this year" - John Barker, 98FM
“very soulful” - The Irish Jam
Paj has previously supported Billy Idol, M People, Hiatus Kaiyote, Taylor McFerrin & Thundercat while working with artists Loah, Martin Hayes, Fehdah & Ensemble Eriu, and has performed in USA & Portugal with subsequent Eurovision song contest winner (2017) & Universal Artist Luisa Sobral.
Paj released an a solo instrumental EP in 2016, well received by Nialler9:
"As a musician with Ensemble Eriu, RiZa and Fehdah, Groenland is no stranger to global sounds and new ways of using them. The lead track on his new Nativism EP (“a reference to the current global struggle for identity and ownership”), is a beautiful guitar piece that has an African, jazz, blues and folk in its DNA." - Nialler 9
