Paul’s work on ‘Blood of Zeus’ has earned him a nomination for Best Music in the 48th Annie Awards.
Annie Awards 2021 - Nominee
Outstanding Achievement for Music in an Animated Television/Media Production -
Episode: "Blood of Zeus: Escape or Die
"Even scenes that could at first be construed as glorious end up being tragic and heartfelt with the power of the show's music behind it. It's the kind of poetic nuance that'd make Apollo, the god of music himself, proud."
"The score also knows how to compliment the more muted moments of the series in a way that still creates an operatic feeling around everything. It’s seriously powerful stuff that really increases the standards of what should be expected of the music in an animated series. "
Den Of Geek
"The music for Blood of Zeus certainly does play an important role throughout the season, though I still struggle to describe in words how awesome it is."
