Paul Claxton




After many years living on Canada’s beautiful west coast, musician Paul Claxton has decided to return home to rediscover his Manitoba roots.

Now based in Winnipeg, the exceptionally busy songwriter and music producer not only plays keyboards with Ashes and Dreams’ Chillout Groove Experience, he also produced and performed all the instruments on jazz artist Eva Schubert’s forthcoming album. At the same time, Paul has his own fruitful solo career as the frontman of Bad Basil and the Bubonics and looks forward to releasing a solo album soon.

A seasoned performer, Paul sings, plays piano, ukulele and other instruments and plays a vast variety of music from jazz and reggae, to R&B, country and even classical music. His career accolades include a staff song writing deal brokered by Geffen Music publisher Jaymes Foster Levy, several publishing deals with Warner Chappell Music in the 1990s, touring Canada and the US, and performing with Vancouver’s Outta Hand Jive Band. Paul has also written music for film and television, but his first love remains performing live in front of a crowd.
