"Paul exceeded any expectation I could have had. His music is rich and timeless and his ability to tell a story with a song was amazing... I would also describe his music as a melding of singer/songwriter, folk, and blues. Paul's songs were well written and his words and musical ability kept me captivated throughout his entire set."

"Another video shows Paul Lee Kupfer playfully picking out "Riverbank Blues" at a kitchen table littered with cups, trash and an ashtray. Dirty dishes pile up in the sink and the back door stands open. Just as you become enamored with Paul's voice and mischievous sound, the white coffee maker behind him reminds you: this could be your kitchen. The wall between singer and listener are down, and what is left is his charming grin and the belief that at some point today he really will, "...go down to the riverbank to see his baby swim"."
