Billy Paul

My father, Nick Paul of KLAC fame introduced me to great music. At 17 years old I became a protege' to Chubby and Duffy Jackson. I also learned a great deal from family friend, Buddy Rich. I have performed with such diverse artists as Steve Allen, Jack Sheldon, Pete Christlieb, Gary Wright, Plas Johnson, Eugene Wright, Marty Harris, Bill Watrous, Sam Most, Linda Hopkins, Mel Carter, Bernard Ighner, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Emil Richards, Robben Ford and Terry Gibbs. I have performed at Jazz Festivals in the U.S. and I am on many CD's and television and movie soundtracks. Additionally, acting and voice-over work are a part of my working world.
