Kevin Pauls is best known for two things - his powerhouse vocals and his unbridled optimism. Kevin cut his teeth on gospel music and over the years has delightedly shared the stage with many of his musical heroes: Gaither Vocal Band, Michael English, Russ Taff, Steve Archer, and Steven Curtis Chapman. He’s performed an eclectic array of musical styles - from popera to southern gospel to hard rock. In short, Kevin loves to sing almost as much as he loves chicken wings. http://kevinpauls.com www.youtube.com/user/kevinpauls
Joel Parisien New World Son
Blurring the lines of distinction between sassy and spiritual, they forged their name, sound and mission statement right in front of their fan base, rather than in the confines of a boardroom. Within months of coming together as a group, they were headlining concerts and finishing pre-production for their first full-length album with companion DVD. By the winter of 2006, in just five days, the entire tracking session for their debut CD/DVD "Roots Revolution" was completed. Striving for a timeless quality, the band recorded together live off the floor, sometimes capturing the essence of a song in just one take. With their rootsy blend of funk, reggae and old school rock and roll, NEWWORLDSON challenges a culture that venerates American Idol and disposable music in general. Undaunted, these unlikely defenders of soul are gracefully walking the line that fractures people into demographics, with passion and integrity.
