When describing the unique vocalist and arranger Paul Jost, 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 compassion in his performance.

While Paul is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, it is his vocal style that makes him a standout. Both critics and contemporaries alike say he is one of the best male jazz vocalists since Mark Murphy. Paul has performed worldwide with tours in Asia and Europe. Back home in the U.S, Paul is a regular on the New York Club scene and can been seen regularly on Festival stages including recent performances at Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and Exit Zero Jazz Festival.

After a long career as an instrumentalist and sideman having recorded and performed with Billy Eckstine, Mark Murphy, Dr. John, Bucky Pizzarelli, Joe Farrell and Ron Carter to name just a few, Paul launched his solo vocal career in 2014 with the release of his debut vocal album “Breaking Through”.

With his reputation as a vocalist growing, Paul was recently showcased on PBS-TV in a profile feature in the Friday Arts series titled "Finding Your Voice". Paul's follow-up release to “Breaking Through” titled “Simple Life” is due out in early 2018 and features his current working band with Jim Ridl-piano, Dean Johnson-bass and Tim Horner on drums. The album also features Joe Locke as special guest on a number of tracks.

Looking forward, Paul will be performing the material from his coming release at venues throughout the United States & Europe.
