Film (Provenance) - Review by IMDB
"The music soundtrack dominated by piano/violin melodies acts almost as another character in the movie with it's vibrant, violently passionate tones,
then sudden juxtaposition to lilting melodic whispers, complementing and interconnecting with John's (Christian McKay) emotions.
Music connects the main characters in a web of joy teetering on destruction."
Film (Provenance) - Review by Filmmakers
"The origin story of the film's original song, Come Back and Love Me Tomorrow, is another example of one of those fabulous moments of serendipity that the production of Provenance seems to have been blessed with."

Musician - Review by B. Polycarpou 2017
"Paul Handley and his musicians played for my daughters wedding at The London Hotel, and also played for the dance after we realised the DJ we had booked for the evening wedding Was not adequate for our dancing.
He quickly arranged the band to take care of the whole evening and is one of the most talented musicians we have ever seen! Paul can play many genres, he made my daughter’s wedding at The London Hotel, Holborn, London."
