ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paul Tobin is a Canadian singer/songwriter who has spent a lifetime writing music. His songs reflect his life, and musical influences.
"PT: My major influences are many. One of my first — and I know this is cliché — but I have to say Johnny Cash, simply because of that album cover, Walk the Line, with him all in black walking down the railway track. I was about six years old at the time. He looked dangerous, and he was going somewhere. I wanted to know where. Later on, Bruce Cockburn was a knockout punch for me. As an acoustic player he opened a lot of doors previously locked, and as a writer, he made me realize that you could write an honest song and not really worry about putting less than four words in a line. He definitely showed little respect for the radio format, and I thought that was a valuable lesson. Later on in my musical journey I found a lot of comfort in artists like BB King, Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown, Luther 'Guitar Jr.' Johnson, Big Dave McLean — who was a massive influence — Bob Marley, J.J. Cale, John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett and many unknown players that I've had the pleasure of playing with, or just listening to, over the years."

Well crafted Urban Folk/Soul album
"All Night Blue" by Paul Tobin is a well-mixed, great sounding, and edgy Urban Folk/Soul album. Tobin claims to be a fan of Johnny Cash and it shows, not in his style but in his voice and wandering soul. He does cover the classic "Walk the Line" but the slower, acoustic track has such a different tone and a great harmony that Tobin made it a song all his own. He even tries out some old roots Blues on the track "How Come" and grabs the listener with his strong soulful voice. Another notable track is the story-telling tune "Time Flies" as Tobin shows off his melodic vocals with heartfelt tenderness. "All Night Blue" is a well-crafted Urban Folk/Soul album with just enough edge to please fans of Bruce Cockburn and Johnny Cash and is well worth hearing.
