Jordan Paul is a small-town, Canadian freak–hanging out in Toronto–traveling the world over with what has been referred to as soul, anti-folk, and power-pop. In truth, the experimental sound of Paul and his band tests the very limits of the sonic medium; incorporating raag, field recordings, and ambient soundscapes into their mind-bending raucousness. Jer of Sleeping Bag Studios, describes Jordan Paul’s sound as “if Queen, Mimicking Birds, Led Zeppelin, and Radiohead all had a beautiful love-child.” As a songwriter, he has worked with Darryl James of The Strumbellas (Double Platinum in Canada; Gold in USA and Canada), Matt Lipscombe (Lily Frost, Bran Van 3000), Amanda Mabro (Ron Sexsmith), Matin Kerr (no.1 in Canada), Chris Cargnello, and many other accomplished writers and artists. His first single 'Archetype X' debuted in the Top 100 Alternative Chart and was awarded Songstudio's 'Most Pitchable Song' and the SHINE music award. Paul is currently recording his debut album at Protection Island in Maple Ridge, British Columbia with Jon Anderson (Aidan Knight, Andy Shauf, Said The Whale).
