When it comes to Paul Couture, he’s no amateur to the music game. He stays busy doing shows and traveling around the country working with top notch artists that you’re probably jamming on your IPod right now. This producer, song writer and collaborative artist has performed with artists such as LMFAO, FKi, Shawzy & Cisco, reggae legend Don Carlos and Pro Skater Danny Way just to list a few. He puts beautifully, “I wouldn't categorize what it is I do as a singing or rapping or making beats, I just go with where the music takes me.”
Paul has had the pleasure to perform at some of this year’s hottest venues and showcases. Paul explains “If you'd have told me in High School back in Texas that I would drop out of college to pursue a career in music and end up at an underground club in Hollywood next to Ryan Seacrest w/ Oompa Loompas flying thru the air w/ bottles of Grey Goose, I'd have said you're insane.”
You may have spotted him ripping up the stage at this year’s New York Fashion Week, Free Press Summer fest, SXSW and even The Seedless Summer Tour. In Paul’s words, “Being on the road is interesting; everyone loves you when you're gone.” If you live in Texas then you already know how hot the South by South West festival is and know of the great artists that come through Austin, Texas. In 2011 alone Paul Couture’s music has been featured in The New Dancemix USA number 1 & 2 and the feature film “Narx”. You can also witness his greatness on the new upcoming Chelsea Handler’s NBC comedy series titled “Are You There Vodka… It’s Me Chelsea”. Fan of Sirius XM satellite radio? Well keep a look out for hot single “Freak Out” by Chessa & the Skinny Kids featuring Paul Couture which is in heavy rotation on Sirius’s number one dance station. Just when you thought this man was amazing, it gets better. This year, Paul released his first mixtape. He’s already shot two videos for it out in the great NYC. The Tape is titled “Down To Mars” and you will find a lovely dose of awe-inspiring music that’s pleasing to the ear. In Paul’s words, "Down To Mars" was meant to be a collaborative collage of Art. Not just a bunch of random music from who or what is hot, but from the Artists, Producers, Genres & Musical Influences I have a personal relationship with. I think we were able to achieve that.” Keep an eye on this up and coming artist, you never know where he’ll pop up next.
