PaulStar Aims To Bring It All Together

The multi-talented artist blends a wealth of influences on his debut full-length.

PaulStar fuses Indigenous roots with rock, pop and more on his debut album Bring It All Together — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Featuring a blend of influences, the multi-talented Quebec artist’s newly released record is a testament to his musical evolution. When creating Bring It All Together, PaulStar — aka Paul Napash — underwent an introspective journey, propelled by his passion to elevate the voices of Indigenous people while taking inspiration from his favourite bands. Every track on the album showcases a different facet of his identity and creative vision, drawing from his own experiences and the hardships encountered by Indigenous communities.

“I always wanted to be a rock star and I loved the ’80s music growing up in Chisasibi,” shares PaulStar. “I learned quickly through private instruction and self-teaching, even though I didn’t attend music school. My goal is to leave my mark in the music industry and Bring It All Together encouraged me to demonstrate my guitar skills and vocal range.”

The energetic Bring It All Together takes listeners through a wide range of themes, from love to self-discovery. Highlights of the album’s versatility include the raw, intimate performance of Rain and the genre-spanning prowess of Home With You and Perfect Love. “The bulk of my songs were crafted and recorded in my former apartment, where I drew inspiration from popular tracks and exceptional talent found on streaming platforms,” he says. “I recorded Timeless at my residence in Smiths Falls. The sound of the acoustic guitar inspired me to write about leaving a legacy in the song.”

PaulStar, also the founder of Meikin Records, is well-known in the music industry. The acclaim he has received for his work as a producer and session player has been reinforced by his collaborations with artists like Claire Sully, Arrow, Shonna, CJAY GRiZ, Slice, Money-1, Melody McArthur, Violent Ground, and K.A.S.P. Aspects. “Music has always been my passion,” he reflects. “With Bring It All Together, I hope to inspire others to embrace their heritage, follow their dreams, and never give up on what they believe in.”
