Canadian singer/songwriter, Paul Wilfred, performs mostly, but not exclusively, in the Maritime provinces. His rock/folk genre of music, along with an energetic and original performance, has engaged his audience since the early 90's. Paul has made a few appearances on The Moncton Songwriters Circle, seen on Rogers TV, to perform his songs "Believe" , "Someday" , "Today" and "Wishin' you Away" and has received critical acclaim and radio air play ,on C103FM in Moncton NB, for his song "Keep Moving On". On Moncton's K94.5, you can expect to hear his songs "No Brainer" and "Today" playing on the Kutting Edge rotation. Both songs were from his recently released debut Album entitled "Onset take 2". It featured 10 original tracks with a mix of folk, rock and hard rock. Some of the songs were written years ago and others just a few months back. The album was officially launched on Friday July 24th, 2015 and was followed by an unplugged-cross-Maritime-Ontario tour a few months later. The album is available on iTunes, CDBaby, Spotify and at his shows. His latest album, New Sun was released in April of 2019 and had a successful debut. The most featured songs like Just Need to be Like us, Sarah Jean , Maritimer and Collision Course are regularly performed live and receive the most airplay on his youtube channel. New Sun is also available on CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify and live shows.
Paul was born and raised in Grand Falls, New Brunswick. He's lived in Charlottetown (P.E.I), Moncton, Fredericton, St. John (NB) and Halifax (NS). He's also had the opportunity to perform in each of these great locations. He started singing in elementary school and joined his first band at the age of 15. For his High School graduation ceremony he and a few bandmates performed a few originals written for the class of 1996. In university, Paul constantly wrote and recorded music which was eventually used for his first EP entitled "Onset" released in 2003. Songs from Onset were performed at The East Coast Music Awards' 24hr jam in Halifax, NS and on CTV's Breakfast Television that year.
Paul later released his album Onset Take 2 which was nominated for Music NB's solo recording of the year in 2015. His song "Today" received a significant amount of radio airplay and is a fan favorite to request at his performances. In 2019 Paul released his 3rd professional recording entitled: "New Sun". Paul continues to receive positive feedback on this album and is a different, darker and heavier album up to date.
Today, Paul continues to give music and guitar lessons to hundreds of students in the public school system. He has shared the stage with musical icons Trooper, Helix, Harlequin and Nazareth. He has also hit the Music New Brunswick showcase stage to perform 5 of his originals during The East Coast Music Award's week. You never know where Paul will be performing next. You could catch him performing on a bar, literally, downtown Ottowa, at a festival in Labradore City, live on Facebook and/or many other different events and venues across the country.
