PaulStar Voices His Grief In Moving New Single One Last Time

The multi-disciplined artist mourns those he's lost with his moving composition.


PaulStar shares long-held and unexpressed grief One Last Time in his haunting new single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

“It’s about losing a loved one,” the award-nominated Canadian pop-rocker and producer recalls. “It took me a few years to grieve for my grandfather. I had no words to express that grief in a song until that Fall. From there, I included the others I’ve lost as well.”

A preview of his forthcoming album Find Myself, One Last Time marks a step into a new realm for PaulStar (Paul Napash). Nominated for an International Indigenous Hip-Hop Award for Best Producer & Beatmaker, the engineer, producer, and composer also helms the record label PaulStar Entertainment and has released a series of critically acclaimed singles. But Find Myself — the debut EP for his own music — officially puts Napash on the other side of the desk.

A member of the Eeyou istchee community, Napash was born and raised in Chisasibi, Que., but now lives in Ottawa. The multi-disciplined Cree artist says he “bathed in music from infancy” thanks to his uncle’s weekly band rehearsals. “I quickly got into how music can act as a unifier within a community. I picked up a guitar at age nine, and realized there’d be no returning on this musical journey. I’m trying to go for something that represents the world as I live it, while sharing the best things in the world for me as I sense them. I’m proud of the way I’ve come, but there’s still a lot to accomplish.”
