Artist Profile: Paul Filek


August 15, 2017

Paul Filek is a Canadian singer songwriter who’s released three albums since 2006 and most recently in 2012 five song EP, Paper Planes and Spare Change, produced by Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, State of Shock, The Dudes). His smooth and effortless, funky vocals and heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics are infectiously hard to deny. His feel good songs fit perfectly on top forty radio, sandwiched between songs of similar style by Maroon 5 and Train. Paul delivers fun and engaging live performances with a sense of humor and storytelling that our Lobby Lounge just can’t resist!

Where are you from?

I am originally from Kamloops, BC.

What style of music do you play?

I play a mix of everything. I started out as a folk singer/song writer and now I enjoy playing Top 40 and current pop.

What instruments do you play?

Primarily the guitar and vocals, but I do also play the piano and the drums.

How did you discover your passion and talent for music?

By accident, late one night at my buddies house. I saw his dad’s guitar in the back of the room and decided I needed to play it.

How long have you been practicing your craft? 

I have been performing music now for the past 12 years.

Favourite song to play? 

Too many to choose from! One of my all time favourites is “Outside” by Staind.

Favourite song to listen to?

Currently, I’m really into Lukas Graham. In particular, “7 years” or “Drunk in the Morning”.

What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I am the youngest of six boys.

On your day off we would find you…

In my room practising the guitar.

It’s 4am on a Saturday night, what would you eat?
