Paul May

Paul is a percussionist who makes an amazing variety of sounds from such a minimal kit, often just a snare a bell and a cymbal. He can be heard around town with duos and quartets regularly and his name on the bill guarantees that thoughtful and interesting music will be made. Paul doesn't do the internet so a while back I asked him who is influences were, this was his reply; "I would cite Bryan Spring, Paul Lovens, Blaise Cendrars, Harold Pinter and Tony Williams. Plus Frank Sinatra and Minutemen and Magma, of course I could go on."
