Paul Langille took to the stage at a very young age, singing and playing guitar in dance halls, service clubs, and numerous other venues in and around his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. During this time, Paul learned the basics of performance and stage work – this was fertile ground for a musical prodigy – and he developed a keen understanding of what entertaining was about.
In late 2001, Paul was involved in the collaborative recording/ performance ..Tears of a Thousand Years.. which raised funds for the relief effort in New York following the events of September 11th.
Paul works with Orchestra London in their Red Hot Weekends series.
Paul has also been a special guest performer for the Jeans & Classics series, contributing a strong vocal presence to many of the Orchestra’s live performances, including special events, corporate shows and, on occasion, doing special performances that featured Paul as the headliner.
