Paul & the Tall Trees is the solo project of Staten Island singer/songwriter Paul Schalda. An appealing mix of warm soul, rustic Americana, and lightly psychedelic rock, Schalda diligently paid over a decade of dues playing everything from hardcore to straight-ahead rock, and eventually landed on a more acoustic-based affair as Pablo in 2005.
With help from his musical father and brother, he released a pair of well-received folk-rock LPs before shelving Pablo in 2009. After several years of touring as soul man Charles Bradley's guitarist, Schalda decided it was time to once again pursue his own voice. Under the name Paul & the Tall Trees, he signed on with Brooklyn label Big Crown Records and recorded his debut LP, Our Love in the Light, which arrived in 2016. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
