Additionally, Paul maintains a private studio of low brass musicians and aspiring music producers. He has shared the stage with bands and leaders such as Bob Mintzer, Patrice Rushen and Band of Horses, as well as taken part in national and regional tours with Futurebirds and Misnomer. In 2020, Futurebirds album 'Teamwork,' a record which Paul arranged the horn arrangements, was nominated by Downbeat Magazine as one of the best albums of 2020 and mentioned by Rolling Stone Magazine for its 'psychedelia and twang.'  Most recently, Paul has appeared on commerical recordings, singles, and albums by the likes of Shea Diamond, Billy Porter, Olivia Morreale, Chris Norton and more.
