Biography

Boise, Idaho based composer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Thomas Paul is adept in a diverse range of genres including swing, funk, country, indie, bluegrass, lounge jazz, blues, psychedelia, bedroom folk and Latin music. Thomas joined his first band at age fourteen and since then has lent his talents to over three-dozen bands and music projects, including Bill Coffey Big Band, Mystery Date and Clock. Cellar Notes recently dubbed him to be “one of the premier performers in the Northwest.”

2006 to 2010 has found Thomas performing extensively, both locally and countrywide, as well as writing and rehearsing new material. In spring and fall of 2010, Thomas participated in two U.S. coast-to-coast tours with Nick Jaina. These were completed in-between his own regional tours promoting House of Fire: a ten-song, 42-minute tour-de-force released in March 2009 and while recording Paul’s second full-length album, Goodbye, Waterloo….

This newest release features Paul’s elaborate instrumentation, stunning vocals, excellent song-craftsmanship and incredible versatility. As an explosion of bastard-soul-indie-jazz-rock with arrangements of Fender Rhodes, grand piano, vocals, drums, strings and horns, “…the funk doesn’t let up.” (Johnny Vinyl—East Oregonian) With contributions from Bob Nagel, Dave Manion, Louis McFarland, and many more, Goodbye, Waterloo… features “a variety of sounds and textures—and his spot-on falsetto—to give Waterloo a heavily layered sound that differs from one song to the next.” (Amy Atkins—Boise Weekly)
