South of Heaven, North of Hell - Full Length Album


Feeling a bit camera shy


Adrenaline Junkie Paul Epic is 'South of Heaven, North of Hell' on His Hard-
Edged Indie Rock Debut
In the second verse of "Faster," Paul Epic's crackling, supercharged "need-for-speed tune," the
former pro weightlifter turned indie hard rocker sings of "twisting the wick" as motorcyclists do when
they're revving up, ready to explode from the starting line. That's an apt metaphor for the Vancouver
based singer-songwriter's burgeoning musical career, which like all of his extreme sports endeavors--
motorcycle drag racing, kickboxing, stunt training and his latest passion, skydiving--reflects an intense
gusto for life and a yearning to live on or over the edge.
Paul's mainstream rock with an edge debut South of Heaven, North of Hell is taking him, full throttle,
on the most thrilling creative journey of his career--with some incredible company riding shotgun.
Epic's electric guitar heavy but surprisingly soulful 12-song collection features the exciting skinning of
drummer Randy Cooke (Five For Fighting, Natasha Bendingfield, The Veronicas) and was helmed by
multi-platinum producer Mike K, who has worked with or shared the stage with the likes of Nelly
Furtado, Elton John, Delta Goodrem, Everclear, Destiny's Child and Amy Sky. South of Heaven,
North of Hell is currently available via iTunes, Sony Connect, Rhapsody, Napster and E Music, and
10% of proceeds will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
South of Heaven, North of Hell is a mix of speed demons like "Faster" and mid-tempo power ballads
such as "Remember Me," which is a reflective look at the aftermath of a relationship. "Proud" is
dedicated to his adoptive father, who suffered from Parkinson's Disease for years before passing
away recently.
Since retiring from pro weightlifting in the late 90s, the health-conscious Epic has indulged in a series
of wild passions, including his current love of skydiving, which he's done regularly for close to four
years at Pitt Meadows in his native British Columbia. Paul recently won a gold medal at the World
Wingsuit Competition in Stupino, Russia.
"Extreme sports and music are an important part of who I am. With skydiving all the little barriers that
used to hold me back have fallen away, and my musical career has certainly benefited from this new
attitude," said Epic.
