Our 1st BSTBU conversation with a rising artist Paul Napash AKA Paulstar, an inspiring Canada-based indigenous musician & producer & a proud member of the Eeyou istchee community from Chisasibi, Quebec, an area represented by the Grand Council of the Crees, although he lives nowadays in Ottawa, Canada's capital. Bathed in music from infancy in his uncle’s band’s weekly rehearsals, he quickly got into how music can act as a unifier within a community. At age 9, as he picked up the guitar, and learnt the songs from local legends KASHTIN - And there would be no returning on this musical journey.
Now, music has become a truly complete path for Paul, who now has completed the Music industry arts program at the Algonquin College, in Ottawa. Paul now works with a number of indigenous artists, as well as non-indigenous, on top of building his own record label, PaulStar Entertainment. Producing here and songwriting there, Napash is one of those rare hybrids of the music industry, one that has both his own, true, identifiable artistic voice, as well as being able to become a chameleon whenever he’s producing beats for other artists such as K.A.S.P., who would go on to create “FIST IN THE AIR” (Feat. Mike Bone), for which Paul has been nominated for Best Producer & Beatmaker at the International Indigenous Hip-Hop Awards show (http://indigenoushiphopawards.com/). Around 2019, Paul has come full circle about his label, and various projects. With the growth that PaulStar Entertainment is showing, as the releases are multiplying for 2020, and a new team, Paul is now looking at a bright future releasing his own self debut EP, “FIND MYSELF”, out this fall of 2020.
