Inspired by musically-adept family, Paul Bomar started
his musical journey at the age of 13 by picking up a used
beginner guitar and learning a few rock tunes. Upon
receiving a dubbed copy of Miles Davis's "'Round About
Midnight" at the age of 16, he developed a love for jazz
that has only grown in the years since.
After playing in several funk and rock bands, Paul set
out to share his passion for jazz with the Raleigh-Durham
area and performed with his own groups and other jazz
combos, as well as working as a session musician for
numerous performers in the area. Paul plays, as described
by others, "tastefully, economically, tunefully,
swinging", drawing from traditional influences such as
Kenny Burrell and Jim Hall as well as more recent players
such as Ed Bickert and Peter Bernstein.
Paul has numerous studio and live albums under his belt
