In addition to playing percussion and drum set with the United States Air Force Falconaires big band, he has co-led the jazz quintet, Inside Out, since 2000. He was a member of the Atlanta based quartet, The Swing Association, voted best jazz group in Atlanta during Paul’s tenure. Paul has also played with jazz notables as diverse as Rufus Reid, Bill Watrous, Tom Coster, Johnny O’Neal, Jacques Lesure, Donald Harrison, Jiggs Whigham, Oscar Brown Jr., and the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra.

As an Air Force drummer, Paul’s pop credits include performances or recordings with Amy Grant & Vince Gill, CeCe & BeBe Winans, Nashville based Christ Church Choir, Lee Greenwood, Wynonna Judd, Mark Anthony, Celine Dion, and Blues Traveler. He has performed with country session greats Tom Morell, John Hughey, Herby Wallace, and the great Johnny Hiland. Paul taught jazz ensemble, private lessons, and composed for the drum & bugle corps at the United States Air Force Academy. Paul and his wife, Melanie, formed the singer/songwriter duo Acoustic Station 12 years ago and he has written music and lyrics for over 60 of their songs. He is currently pursuing doctoral work, teaching privately, and performing in the New York City area.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
