Paul Weller

~ Person


John William "Paul" Weller, Jr. (born 25 May 1958) is an English singer, songwriter and musician. Weller achieved fame with the punk rock band The Jam (1976–82). He had further success pursuing a blue-eyed soul style of music with The Style Council (1983–89), before establishing himself as a solo artist in 1991.

Despite widespread critical recognition as a singer, lyricist and guitarist, Weller has remained a national rather than an international star, and much of his songwriting is rooted in British culture. He is also the principal figure of the 1970s and 1980s mod revival, and is often referred to as The Modfather.

The Daily Telegraph has said of Weller: "Apart from David Bowie, it’s hard to think of any British solo artist who’s had as varied, long-lasting and determinedly forward-looking a career." The BBC described Weller in 2007 as "one of the most revered music writers and performers of the past 30 years". He has received four Brit Awards—winning the award for Best British Male twice, and the 2006 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
