Kamloops singer-songwirter Paul Filek is coming to the Rockwater Grill and Bar to play a show on Friday Nov. 9.

Acoustic blend of Canadian folk to pop rock comes to Golden

British Columbia singer-sonwriter Paul Filek is coming to the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Friday Nov. 9.

British Columbia singer-sonwriter Paul Filek is coming to the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Friday Nov. 9.

Born and raised in Kamloops, the acoustically-based Filek has a repertoire that can best be described as an ever growing fusion from Canadian fold to pop rock.

He has recorded three albums with Henry Small (Prism, The Guess Who, John Entwistle) between 2006 and 2009.

Filek was born into a large family, with six siblings choosing professional careers like law and accounting, even though it was a family with a strong musical presence.

Originally headed down a similar path, taking business administration at university, he found music in his early 20s and never looked back.

Influenced by artists such as James Blunt, Maroon 5 and Train, Filet has managed to build up a musical repertoire that has had him opening for big names in the music business like Colin James, Big Sugar, Trooper, Carly Rae Jepson, Kevin Costner, Styx, and has even performed the national anthem at the Calgary Flames hockey games.

He has appeared on several day-time TV shows, and was a Top 40 pick on Canadian Idol in 2007.

In April, 2008, Filek moved from Kamloops to Vancouver to pursue his music full time, and ended up moving in with his brother.

The move allowed him to tour western Canada, performing for audiences in threatres, bars, concert halls and stadiums. He loves the road, and has won over audiences with his easy charm, warm voice, and catchy songs.

In March of this year, the “Paper Planes and Spare Change” EP came to life. It is a compilation of five heart-felt songs showcasing Filek’s quirky lyrics, fun demise, and new sound.
