Biography

Lead vocalist and Platinum recording artist Pauli Carman has re-tooled CHAMPAIGN and is back on the music scene. He has taken a more active role in writing and producing his material and still exudes the audience appeal that was captured on stage as far back as his Midwest performance days with his original band COAL KITCHEN.

After the break-up of Coal Kitchen, Pauli was lead singer and one of the original members making up the hit group CHAMPAIGN. Pauli Carman and Champaign scored heavy on the platinum charts with their first release “HOW ‘BOUT US”. Champaign has topped both Billboard’s pop and soul charts soaring to Number One on the Adult Contemporary charts. As a testament to their international appeal “How ‘Bout Us” shot to Number One in England and earned a platinum disc certification. In Holland, Belgium, and Asia, both the single and the LP produced two platinum discs.

The potent follow-up to the group’s debut album HOW ‘BOUT US was MODERN HEART, featuring the hit single “TRY AGAIN”… co-produced by George Massenburg, best known as engineer for artists as diverse as EARTH, WIND, and FIRE and LITTLE FEAT. TRY AGAIN also climbed to the top of the Billboard charts earning Number One status.

With the success of the first two releases, Champaign exploded again onto the charts a third time with the release of the hit single OFF AND ON LOVE from the album WOMAN IN FLAMES.

The last group album, CHAMPAIGN IV was released under Malaco Records featuring the singles TEARDROPS FALL and TRIALS OF THE HEART.

As a solo artist, Pauli Carman scored again with the singles IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT and DIAL MY NUMBER. Pauli has worked with numerous artists including Sly Stone, the Funkadelics, and Stevie Wonder.
