Paul Irvine

BIO

Paul Irvine has lived a storied life. Or so he would like you to believe. Judging by the songs on his singer-songwriter debut, 'Faux Pop - Vol. 1', one might be convinced that the life adventures described are autobiographical.  Maybe they are. Maybe they are your own.  A brief audience with Paul as he performs his catchy songs (vocal & piano or with his band, the Soulless Young Devils) may prove revealing. You may even find yourself singing along.

Paul Irvine is on the comeback trail of sorts. After years as an in-demand sideman and session player for the likes of Corey Hart, Goddo, Klaatu, Bob Segarini, Vital Sines, The Partland Brothers, Georgie Fame and Ronnie Hawkins – to name but a few – the saxophone and flute playing professional took a sideways career leap into the business side of entertainment, but his intent had always been to pursue a career as a singer-songwriter – not just as a multi-instrumentalist – and so he has re-emerged revitalized as just that with his first solo album ‘Faux Pop – Vol. 1’ which he wrote, recorded, produced and performed all the instruments and vocals on at his home in West Hill, Ontario.

It’s taken him a lifetime to reach his musical potential. He took up drums at the age of 10. With a progression into high school at Woburn Collegiate, Paul formed musical friendships as he also took up flute and saxophone in quick succession.

Paul has a deep appreciation and passion for songwriting, composition, arranging and orchestration. His compositions, "This Harbourtown" as performed by Mark James Fortin, and "Wildwood Dream" as performed by K.C. Carter, enjoyed considerable airplay in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, it was only recently that he began performing his own songs in public and finally began the process of re-branding himself as a singer-songwriter who also happens to be a multi-instrumentalist.

Paul's Phoenix-like rebirth has come as a natural progression with his decades of experience. He is comfortable in his musical role and he’s putting it on display for the world to hear and see – he performs solo (piano & vocal) and with his live act, Paul Irvine & His Soulless Young Devils.
