He collaborated with Ken Burton and the Croydon Gospel Choir and released the Gospel album, The Very Best Of Gospel for HMV. Also, during that time he sang with the traditional male quartet Covenant as well as contemporary quartet Kinsman.

In 1999 Lee released his debut solo Gospel album Lilies Of The Field under his own label LittleFellow Records in conjunction with Alliance Music and FAR Records. Since then, Paul has gone on to record and perform with other UK Gospel artists and groups which include Graham Kendrick, Mark Beswick, PowerPraise, Kingdom Choir, Noel Robinson, Nu Image Choir, Muyiwa, Riversongz, Lawrence Johnson's One Voice Project, and The Croydon SDA Gospel Choir. Most recently he has been working closely with BBC’s "Songs of Praise" whilst managing the London Adventist Chorale and Nicky Brown on various projects.
