Having lived in Memphis, Dallas, Nashville, Chicago
and Los Angeles, he has soaked up some of the wonderful
sounds of these music meccas and used them like a painter
uses colors to paint a landscape. His is a musical landscape
of blues, jazz, R&B, soul, country, folk and gospel.
Blessed with a voice that recalls the influences of
Ray Charles, Johnny Adams, Joe Cocker, Walter 'Wolfman'
Washington, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Sam Cooke, Paulie
has a vocal sound and style all his own. Being an in
demand saxophonist for years with artists such as Lucky
Peterson, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, Jimmy Johnson,
Carl Weathersby and countless others has shaped him
both as a writer and vocalist.
