Tall Paul (Paul Bobal) was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, where he played keyboards in “garage bands” from the age of 11. After seeing Doc & Merle Watson perform for freshman orientation at Appalachian State University, he taught himself to play acoustic guitar and started playing the college circuit in North Carolina. He then joined Stoney Creek, a band that opened for Hall & Oates, The Doobie Brothers and Jimmy Buffett, before striking out on his own after graduation. Since his move to Nashville, Paul has performed all over the globe and continues taking his music anywhere people will listen. As a solo act, a duo with his wife Kristie and as a member of the band Ramajay Intercoastal he is constantly touring and entertaining enthusiastic crowds, playing almost 200 dates a year!
The influences to his music are as varied as the music itself. Playing the songs of the Beatles, Hendrix, the Doors and Yes early on, were the groundwork for later inspirations James Taylor, Doc Watson, Lowell George, Todd Rundgren and John Hiatt. “Can’t Find My Way“, Paul’s first CD, was voted one of Nashville’s Best Independent releases and Paul was voted one of the top Rock Vocalists in the Nashville Scene’s Readers Poll alongside John Hiatt.
