About musician Thomas Paul:
Singer-songwriter and composer Thomas Paul is a multi-instrumentalist adept in many genres. When not leading his own band, Paul can be found performing solo or in a number of projects, including bands, theater, comedy and occasionally the Boise Philharmonic Master Chorale.

The Idaho Statesman’s Michael Deeds wrote, “He’s been in more Boise bands than any sane musician should, and he plays essentially any instrument with strings or keys…. He’s also eccentric…”

His albums Yours, Etc… (2005), House On Fire (2009), Goodbye, Waterloo… (2011), Interference (2015), Singalongs (2016) and No Air Anywhere (2019) are available at The Record Exchange in Boise. Paul still occasionally stops by Radio Boise on Friday mornings to co-host the V3. (Photo credit: Jason Sievers)
