Paul Woida is a well known and loved singer-songwriter/master looper currently based in Edmonton, AB Canada. (a “looper” records and plays back pieces of music using instruments and voice in real time, creating multiple layers). Having graduated with double diplomas from Grant MacEwan University in both Composition and Drum Set, he has the exceptional ability to combine complex rhythms and harmony which, via the looper, result in a sound close to that of a full band.
He is often compared to Ed Sheeran, Jason Mraz and Jeff Buckley and has a unique live show which turns heads and wins the hearts of new fans wherever he goes. His incredible musicianship, catchy hooks and emotive vocals are unforgettable once experienced.
To name a few of his accomplishments, he is a past winner of the Hot 107 $10,000 Hot Factor Competition, he placed first in the Edmonton Landmark Showcase Competition, was chosen to open for Casting Crowns at the 2016 Break Forth conference and won the 2016 Airmiles ‘Detour Big Break’ Competition which brought him to Port Hawkesbury NS to open for Meghan Trainor. He is also involved with the EPower Anti-Bullying Campaign which tours schools across Canada.
His passion is music and that passion is fueled by his love and passion for people. He wants to inspire and be a positive role model for all people regardless of age. His desire is to help them see that dreams are achievable if you work hard and keep striving!
