Paul Helou: Home


"The kind of family artist that has great passion for the art he creates along with the talent that appeals to grown-ups and children alike."

 --Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles


An award-winning songwriter, actor and journalist, Paul Helou performs a blend of bluegrass, Americana, roots and folk music --as well as musical/theatrical improvisation workshops for both children and adults (actors and "non-actors").

The newly designed Bears, Bees & Butterflies CD is here! With an illustration (an actual painting!) by Tim Bowers, the multi-award-winning recording -- Parents' Choice, iParenting Media, Independent Music Awards, Children's Music Web, International Songwriting Contest, Unisong Contest -- is ready for you!


Excerpts from a recent school performance showing the energetic and interactive nature of Paul's shows -- positive, upbeat messages and lots of motion! 

Here is a music for children showcase I did for libraries. A good representation of my show/workshops for children.



Here's a video of Paul playing his original blues/roots song, Just Like a Cat, backed by Hank Stone on harmonica. Not a huge crowd, but a lively performance!

Whatever the scenario, Paul's performances and workshops combine a spontaneous sense of humor, personal warmth, and engaging simplicity that draws from a rich well of diverse talents.
