Paul Cafcae

Paul Cafcae blends Americana music with his European ancestral lyricism, aiming to juxtapose sadness and happiness, call out the hypocrisies in the world, and invoke the warm and expressive emotions. With his bright and entertaining stage presence, Paul always strives to create a memorable communal experience with his audience. Cafcae’s songs have been played on North American radio stations such as The Bay, Radio Western, CKIU and CIUT, as well as in Europe, Asia, and Africa. The song “I Ain’t Shook” from his recent album has peaked at #11 in the UK’s Hot Disk Country Top 40 chart and stayed in the chart for 17 weeks. His music videos have repeatedly won Best Music Video awards at international film festivals.

WHAT THE WORLD HAS TO SAY

“If it were 1962 again, this record would have been number 1 on every chart.”
Joe Kidd, Clouzine Contemporary Music Magazine

“Paul Cafcae has just released his single Downtown. Why should you care? Well, it was mixed and mastered by Glen Robinson, who has worked on records for artists from The Ramones and The Beach Boys to Nashville Pussy, Voivod, and even U2. Plus it has an extraordinarily sizzling harmonica solo by Hector Alexander.
Tinnitist

“An artist in love with the classic 50’s and 60’s musical style. He gives it a modern twist whilst also capturing the authentic vibe of the rockabilly and do-wop genres, amongst others. As well as a gifted vocalist and a first-rate guitarist, his songwriting reflects the ups and downs of being human in a charismatic and entertaining fashion.”
