"Super Tall Paul Does It All at Coachella." Coachella campers may have come across what appeared to be one of the many art exhibits on display at the campsite. Tthe Jive Joint, housing solitary performer Super Tall Paul (aka Paul Newman, multi-instrumentalist.) Inside the theater, Super Tall towers over his audience poised with his ukulele like a vaudevillian Tiny Tim on a small stage that could have been taken directly from a Terry Gilliam film. Crooning like a young Randy Newman, Paul enchants his subjects with interpretations of ’40s standards to upbeat hits from this weekend's Coachella performers. With no set schedule, Paul rewrites the contract between performer and audience. The act is always the same; the audience rotates in and out. This multifaceted traveling campground act wooed audiences from late night into the early morning with music, magic, and juggling. Performing the longest set of the weekend, Super Tall Paul did it all! - press


“Two years ago, the highlight of my experience at Austin’s Art Outside was a late night performance by Super Tall Paul. I had seen him perform many times before and I’d always had a blast at these shows. This one was particularly fun because I brought a friend who’d never experienced Paul’s unique brand of music and comedy. My friend couldn’t stop talking through the entire performance. “This is amazing.” “I’m blown away right now.” He went on and on about everything he liked, and I’ll never forget that over-the-top exuberance. A multitalented performer, Super Tall Paul has mastered a variety of musical instruments, comedy, magic, juggling, unicycling and clowning. There’s something charismatic abut his laid back, improvisational style; Super Tall Paul makes you feel more like you’re hanging out with your new friend in his living room rather than sitting in the audience watching a creative genius on stage.” - Kimbriel Dean


“In the world of bass-stomping music festivals, it’s seldom that most folks have the chance to enjoy the soft strumming of a ukulele by a juggling championship looper with a vaudevillian flair...believe it or not. Yet one incredible artist has found a captive audience for such an act at music festivals all over. With The Jive Joint, a traveling stage "that unfolds like the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," the multi-talented Super Tall Paul is making this aspiration a reality by successfully touring some of the best music festivals in North America, including: Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Art Outside, Shambhala, Bonnaroo, Electric Daisy Carnival and Electric Forest, just to name a few. Since its inception, the Jive Joint has come to be a widely celebrated oasis in the increasingly electronic festival world, one that lends a refreshing calm amid funky, jazzy rhythms, beat-boxing, and a soulful voice that resounds like a lullaby through the night sky.” - Graham Berry


Still working on that hot first release.



Paul Newman, aka SuperTallPaul, is a well proportioned enigma. His oddly intriguing appearance reflects a 6'6" man with pigtails, a curly mustache, and outrageous clothing. He is a professional entertainer of the highest quality specializing in "one man band" style musical looping and Vaudeville entertainment. He incorporates his soulful voice with ukulele, saxophone, flute, beatboxing, bass effects, & even the occasional nose whistle! Paul won the Boss National Looping competition and is renowned as one of the greatest musical loopers in the world. In addition to his incredible live music performance, he often incorporates many circus skills into his act including juggling, magic, face balancing, comedy, improv, & unicycle. For more than a decade Paul has thrilled audiences at large scale festivals around the world to include Coachella, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Shambhala, and many others. Akin to artists like Reggie Watts and Beardyman, SuperTallPaul is a hybrid performer who combines theatrical, in the moment comedy and skill based artistry with funky, awe inspiring musical grooves. As a well versed street performer, Clown, and Improvisational Actor, he thrives on the spontaneous and even awkward moments that happen with an engaged audience. He creates a performance experience that amazes many diverse audiences around the globe.
