Paul Tait 2014 Bio
For over three decades Paul Tait has performed both as a band leader and as a singer/songwriter/pianist. He independently released a series of critically acclaimed recordings, including: "Pop Musician", "Television City", "I Still Believe", “Back In Business”, “Angels Of The City”, and "Song to the Moon" which was a number one requested college radio station song the year it was released.
As an actor, Paul performed in regional theater and on Off Broadway. Productions included: "Mr. Roberts", "Jesus Christ Superstar", "Tales from the Wayside Inn", "The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail" and Harold Pinter’s "The Homecoming" for which he won a Best Actor award from the Boston Globe.
In September of 2007 Paul launched a website and debuted his presence in the online digital download market. So much backlog did he have, that six CD’s were released at once! Each subsequent year saw another two CD’s released; all of it digitally re-mastered material recorded in the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s.
(Note: In order to make discovery easier for new fans, Paul has recently whittled his online catalog to a handful of releases).
In addition, Paul employed his theater and film making skills to create videos for many of the tracks.
The combination of digital downloads and video presence has earned him an international audience ranging from Japan, Germany, Brazil, Poland, and the United Kingdom; to Canada, Mexico, and his own native United States.
In 2010 Paul released the critically acclaimed CD “…born at night…” his first new collection of songs in seven years.
“all that is left is all that remains” was released in March of 2011. Some critics called it the best work he had ever done.
2012 saw the spring releases of "Mixing My Emotions: 1995-2010" and "Two On One", a collection that combined both "...born at night..." and "all that is left is all that remains" on one 18 song CD.
In August of 2012 Paul released the EP "PTEP8" which reunited him with 1980's studio partner Ed Daley for the first time in 18 years.
On New Years Eve 2012 a companion CD to Paul's 2009 release "I Still Believe: The Best of Paul Tait" was dropped. "Rest of the Best of: 1984-2003" was a 16 song compilation featuring tracks from CD's no longer in print and some that have never been on CD before.
Then on Thursday February 28, 2013 the final anthology of Paul's material was released. "AlternaTait Deluxe" featured 16 songs ranging from radio jingles, bizarre experiments, cool experiments, 80’s garage rock, a sci-fi adventure, lost mixes, out takes and the very first recordings Paul Tait released in 1983, “I CAN’T SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS” and “POP MUSICIAN”.
Currently on the market Paul Tait has six CD's; featuring eighty songs, and spanning 30 years (1983-2013).
“Paul Tait is truly one of music’s unsung, unsigned greats when it comes to pure pop rock expression. And by pop rock music I do not mean the fluff we accept today for contemporary pop rock music, I mean good old fashioned solid pop rock and roll songwriting delivered with passion, zeal and just the right amount of humor.”
