Paul Filek (21 October 1981) is a Canadian Singer-songwriter and musician born and raised in Kamloops BC. Acoustically based, his repertoire can best be described as an ever growing fusion from Canadian folk to Pop Rock. He has recorded three albums with HENRY SMALL (Prism, The Guess Who, John Entwistle) between 2006 and 2009 and has been greatly influenced by the early writings of James Blunt, The old 97’s, and more recently by that of Maroon 5 and Train. Paul is currently working with producer Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, State of Shock, The Dudes, Andrew Allen). And in March of 2012 The ‘Paper Planes And Spare Change EP’ came to life. A compilation of five heart felt songs showcasing Paul’s quirky lyrics, fun demise, and new sound.
‘Falling For You’ hit the Canadian air waves as Filek’s first major commercial release in April of 2011. Peaking at #85 nation wide (Mediabase Main AC 7/30/2011) ‘Falling For You’ also broke the top 20 charts in both Vancouver (#12 CHQM 103.5fm) and in Kamloops (#14 CKBZ 100.1fm) His warm voice, boyish charm and catchy songs garnished him the PEOPLES CHOICE AWARD – BCIMA in 2008, TOP 40 Finalist Canadian Idol (2007) as well as tour support for INXS, TROOPER, CARLY RAE JEPSON, JULLY BLACK, STYX, KEVIN COSTNER and MODERN WEST, CORB LUND, and many more.
The band currently consists of Paul Filek (Vocals, Guitar), Lonny Eagleton (Vocals, Guitar, Trumpet), Jon Baergen (Bass), Brian Badd (Drums)
