Bio

Being born in Scotland, and emigrating to Windsor, Canada has certain advantages if you are an electronic musician.

Canada's Motor City, Windsor, has the unique feature of being situated just two minutes by car across a river from Detroit, Michigan, the city where one of electronic music's most important movements began. The sounds of seminal techno music broadcast from Detroit radio stations were easily received by the radio of Paul Edwards, singer/producer of Le Bus.

Meanwhile, Paul's cousin back in Scotland was sending him a steady stream of mixtapes via airmail of the exploding underground UK music scene.

Moving to Toronto, Paul began to release electronic music and perform live, which led to opening for techno legends Orbital, invitations to festivals like Toronto's Edgefest, and the Detroit Electronic Music Festival.

While producing electronic music, Paul also was spending a lot of time playing guitar and singing in local indie-rock bands. Eventually, along with collaborators Aaron Farr (Drums) and Ron Starfield (Synths), Paul began to experiment with ways to bring these two musical spheres together.

By combining vocals and songwriting with synths, blips, and beats, Le Bus create danceable electronic songs.

"We are definitely making dance music with an electronic heart, but each track also has the soul of a simple, good song," says Edwards.

Le Bus' next EP, "Fission, Friction, Frequency", will be released July 9, 2009 on Spiral Recordings.
