Paul Jost is an eclectic artist from Philadelphia with great skills as a drummer, arranger and composer but it’s his voice that truly makes him a standout. Both critics and contemporaries alike say he is one of the best male jazz vocalists since Mark Murphy.

When describing the unique vocalist, two words come to mind: “passionate storyteller”. To Paul, each lyric offers a message, a story, and he conveys his own interpretation of those stories through his arrangements and the honesty in his performance.

After a long career as an instrumentalist and sideman, Paul has either recorded or performed with such legendary artists as Ron Carter, Dr. John, Billy Eckstine, Mark Murphy, Bucky Pizzarelli and Joe Farrell.

Paul has performed worldwide with tours in USA, Asia and Europe. He is a regular on the New York Club scene performing at clubs such as the 55 Bar, Iridium, Blue Note, Smoke, Dizzy’s and Mezzrow to name a few.

Paul officially launched his solo vocal career in 2015 with the release of his debut vocal album “Breaking Through”. His follow-up release to “Breaking Through” is his new album “Simple Life".

“Simple Life” was recorded with his quartet including Jim Ridl on piano, Dean Johnson on bass and Tim Horner on drums. The album also features the famous vibraphonist Joe Locke as special guest on four tracks.

The songs included on “Simple Life” not only look back, paying tribute to the tradition, they also look forward reaching outside the traditional boundaries of the genre. On the album, Paul takes his hand to a number of songs written by Lennon and McCartney, Dylan, Sonny Rollins, Ray Nobel, Duke Ellington, Jerome Kern and a couple of his originals, bringing a fresh approach while at the same time respecting their history and place in the American Songbook.

Jost‘s quick rise as a singer is a testament to his innate talent, his precision as a musician, and his distinctive vocal sound. His unconventional path to singing gives him a 360-view of the art form. He knows what works across a variety of musical settings. His innovative phrasing and expert sense of time distinguishes him as a jazz singer. And he swings, but also knows how to provide a poignant and meaningful interpretation of each carefully selected composition.

Paul Jost will release his new album "Simple Life" in Europe on November 15th, 2019.
