Born in Melbourne, his mother was a jazz drummer. He was never a good student. Perhaps for this reason, his mother encouraged him from childhood to learn to play drums, a discipline in which he demonstrated an innate talent. After trying several jobs, at the beginning of the 80s he began his musical career. One of his first bands was the Australian Deckchairs Overboard, which came to have some popularity in the antipodes. At the end of 1983, the great opportunity arrived for Hester. A popular band in New Zealand, Split Enz, needed a new drummer and Paul was recommended for the position and finally chosen after rehearsing several times with the other members of the group. The leader of Split Enz was the guitarist, composer and singer Neil Finn, with whom two years later he would leave to found, together with bassist Nick Seymour, Crowded House – initially baptized as Mullanes.
Huge global success
The band’s first self-titled album was released in 1986 and became a world best seller thanks in part to the successful ‘Do not Dream It’s Over’. Two years later his second album was released, ‘Temple of Low Men’, whose sales were less than the songs composed by Finn were well received by critics.
Hester participated in the two remaining studio albums of the band: ‘Woodface’ (1991) -in which Neil’s brother participated- and ‘Together Alone’ (1993). In the first of them is included ‘Italian Plastic’, a romantic song that Hester composed himself and that surprised the fans of the group, since -like Ringo in the Beatles- he did not use to compose for the band.
Paul left the group during a tour of the US in April 1994. He justified his decision by the hardness of the concerts and his disenchantment with the industry. The band dissolved two years later.
After leaving Crowded House, Hester worked in several Australian radio and television programs and opened a tearoom in Elwood Beach, while continuing to collaborate with different musicians.

Paul Hester had dragged down a deep depression for years. In the end he was able to take him and lead him to his death, when he was 46 years old.
Paradoxically, and despite her secondary status, Hester was the member most loved by the fans of the group for her affable character and good humor.
