With a notebook computer filled with piano-driven tunes — some humorous, some deadly serious or sarcastic, but always insightful — Ohio-native Parker Paul (Wilkinson) comes off like Randy Newman’s wise-ass nephew. As well as Adam Busch (who go on to create Manishevitz), Parker Paul produced the Wondering Digit in Charlottesville, VA. The group released two albums on Jagjaguwar before splitting up in 1998. After a stint as the touring key pad participant for Royal Trux, Parker Paul released his single debut in 1999 on Jagjaguwar, the unaccompanied and vaudevillian Lemon Lime Area. After comprehensive touring — playing all over the place from nightclubs and summer months camps to clinics and wedding ceremonies — Parker Paul released Wingfoot in past due 2001 on Jagjaguwar. This time around out he was supported by a complete band, as well as the record featured performances by such Chicago luminaries as Vandermark 5 trombonist Jeb Bishop and avant cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, aswell as former Wondering Digit bandmate Adam Busch.
