Moss was the AS A&R director of record company Positive Tone from its inception in 1994 until last year. Moss oversaw the transformation in Malaysian music that created whole new markets for English-language artistes and new genres of music.
The band originated in New Zealand and had five members: Paul Moss himself on guitars, Malcolm Smith on keyboards, Glenn Peters on Bass, Dave Larsen on drums and Aishah as their lead vocalist.
Aishah and The Fan Club were a big hit in 1990 when they released the album Sensation which had three #1 singles in New Zealand and Malaysian charts. The hits were "Sensation", "Paradise" and "Call Me".
Their next album, titled "Respect The Beat", also produced three hit singles such as "I Feel Love", "Never Gave Up On You" and the only single to actually debut in the US Billboard Hot 100 charts, "Don't Let Me Fall Alone". The remixes for the song were also released and were frequently played dance tunes during that time.
After the band split in 1993, Aishah continued with a solo career, and the rest of the members went back to New Zealand. Moss, however, returned and decided to settle down in Malaysia in 1995. He and Ahmad Izham Omar (who is today the CEO of 8TV, a Malaysian TV channel) formed their own music company called Positive Tone under the EMI label.
Paul Moss is responsible for artist signing, artistic direction, recording, production and content development at Positive Tone. Paul Moss is also a multi-award-winning music producer, songwriter and arranger. He has produced several gold and platinum releases and Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) winners from OAG, Innuendo and Juliet the Orange. He has also worked with other recording artists such as Too Phat, Ella and Nicestupidplayground.
Along with Roslan Aziz and Fauziah Latiff, Paul Moss is one of the judges in Malaysian Idol, a singing competition that is part of the Idol series that first started as Pop Idol. Moss expresses his opinions on Malaysian Idol harshly, often causing himself to be compared to Simon Cowell. He was a judge in the first Asian Idol held in Indonesia, representing Malaysian Idol.
Moss was appointed as Media Prima Network Media Portals Super General Manager.
