Biography

Paul Thomas Yoder brings a fresh new face to the world of Contemporary Jazz. Although his work has been called the "essence of smooth jazz", his individualistic musical style and interpretation contains elements of pop, rock, hip-hop and fusion. With some 35+ years of musical experience under his belt, his first release "Dreamin" scored rave reviews (www.cdbaby.com/ptyoder2) from ABC Radio International, Cafe Jazz Radio, SmoothJazz.com Radio, Opus Broadcasting, Jazz Improv Magazine and Smooth Jazz News. International radio airplay was achieved as well. His second release "Catalina Cool", features some of the biggest artists in the smooth jazz world including: Michael Lington, Mindi Abair, Paul Jackson Jr., Chris Standring, Jay Soto, Freddie Fox, and Dan Kuramoto of Hiroshima. Under the artful direction of producer David Longoria (Sting, George Michael, Cece Penniston), Paul Thomas Yoder has created a true masterpiece that is sure to spawn several chart-bound hits. Paul is currently rehearsing with his world-class band in preparation for tour support of the new release.
