Paul Bellows stitches literate lyrics into the ass of infectively melodic pants to provide ample cushioning for his bookish pop.
Paul Bellows is a songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Paul writes literate, melodic pop music and performs solo and with his band, the Dead Canadas. Paul began his musical career in Yamaha organ lessons in the back room of a department store. Moving through piano, trumpet, trombone and harmonica over the years, he quickly lost all interest in the early instruments when he stole his first guitar. After a short time in juvenile detention facilities, Paul rejoined society and began writing gospel hits. His short incarnation as a gospel songwriter was followed by a long stint as a retail manager and student of the Liberal Arts. Emerging from the land of denim and Foucault, he purchased a big fat acoustic guitar and immediately began to produce brilliant folk-pop hits. This string of smart, catchy acoustic numbers was captured on his first album, "Juliet Pauses", which received critical acclaim and led to several years of touring and performing at festivals
