He┬álistening to the Everly Brothers and was heavily influenced by the energy and excitement created by┬áthe first British Invasion, especially The Beatles and the classic pop songwriting of the 1960’s. Considered one of the pioneers of the power-pop genre, Ray Paul has been touring and recording since 1978.

In 2016, Ray Paul released a brand new album with guest appearances by Clem Burke (Blondie), TerryDraper (Klaatu), Emitt Rhodes & Kurt Reil (Grip Weeds) that was critically acclaimed. His Ray Paul & RPM band toured the west coast and the northeast last summer promoting the album which Goldmine magazine called “the first great power pop album of 2016!” A band show this July 22nd at Lovin’ Cup will be recorded for an album release.
