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". These days, on Moncton's K94.5, you can expect to hear his songs "No Brainer" and "Today" playing on the Kutting Edge rotation. Both songs are from his recently released debut Album entitled "Onset take 2". It features 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.com and at his shows. His next album is scheduled for release in 2019.
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.
Since then, Paul has given 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 in Moncton, NB. 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 and/or many other different events and venues across the country.
