Vocalist/percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Paul Brundtland began exploring music when around age five his grandfather presented him with a small bamboo drum while on a day trip in the mountains around Kingston Jamaica. Characteristically, after enjoying experimenting with the sounds of the drum for a few minutes, he asked if he could use a stick on the skin. His grandfather reached into the bamboo grove, cut a small twig and handed it over. From that point there was no stopping him from banging on anything that might make a sound - table tops, tin cans, pianos, guitars.
Born in Oslo, Norway to a Jamaican mother and Norwegian father, Paul has lived in Norway, Jamaica, Sweden, Spain, and the U.S., but spent most of his life in Toronto, Canada, until relocating to Tokyo, Japan in late 2000. This spirit of travel, and change is reflected in his music. Sounds range from Soul to World to Club to Reggae and Pop, however, an underlying organic, rhythmic quality as well as soulful, heartfelt vocals. Paul has been performing live for several years, and has shared the stage with acts such as Jamiroquai and Meshell Ndegeocello. Currently focusing on collaborations in Japan, he has done shows with, and made appearances on albums by Jazztronic, i-dep, Nature Soul and virtuoso flamenco guitarist Jin Oki. Working with producer Shin Hashimoto, he has composed and performed music for television and has written songs for several Japanese artists. Paul has also recently released the self-produced CD entitled Nada - Ambient Percussion for Yoga and Relaxation. Nada is available through People Tree shops in Tokyo or by catalogue.
