Paul Tewksbury is a talented and versatile professional musician who has been performing in the Washington, DC region since his teenage years in the late ‘80’s.  “Playing in bands was always the best way to get into bars without fake ID,” he boasts jestfully.

In late 2020, Taxbeagy returned with a new album that's earning attention and praise online: check out The Original Music of Taxbeagy page to listen and learn all about it!
