Biography

De Paul was born to Meta and Herbert Rubin, a property developer. She grew up in a Jewish family in Cricklewood, North London.

A second Ivor Novello award followed a year later for the Phil Spector-ish "No Honestly", which was also the theme tune to a hit ITV comedy of the same name, and provided her with another UK Top 10 hit.

A prolific songwriter first and foremost, de Paul has written songs for many other recording artists. In a five year period (1972-77) she wrote a total of 14 UK Singles Chart hits, most notably "Dancin' (on a Saturday Night)" which was a hit for co-writer Barry Blue as well as Flash Cadillac and Bond. Indeed, de Paul's songs have reached the charts in most territories, including the U.S., Japan, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Canada and Australia. She also has performed producing and arranging duties on many of these recordings.

"Rock Bottom", which she wrote with Mike Moran, was the UK entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977. Although it came second in the Eurovision Song Contest, it went on to become a Top 20 hit in many European countries including France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where it reached the top of their singles chart. De Paul and Moran went on to write a number of songs, such as "Let Your Body Go Downtown", a Top 40 hit (in 1977 reached number 38 in the BBC Top 50) for the Martyn Ford Orchestra; and the follow up "Going to a Disco", as well as "Without You", and "Now and Then", which appeared on the albums Tigers and Fireflies and Just a Little Time, respectively.

Lynsey has orchestrated, played, and produced two classical records of compositions by Handel and Bach for Deutsche Grammaphon. Her work for the Channel Tunnel Group included writing and producing an album of children’s songs with accompanying song colouring book for Eurotunnel’s mascot entitled “Marcus The Mole”. She has written film music for and acted in the children’s film “Gabrielle and the Doodleman”, and has composed on-air jingles for broadcast radio including Capital Radio.

In the autumn of 2006, Lynsey released a DVD entitled “Taking Control” representing her self-defence training programme. The programme shows the importance of self-defence for women and has approached schools and universities to include the DVD in the curricula.

On 30 June 2006, de Paul became a director on the board of the Performing Right Society presented to her at the AGM.
