We are Paravel
PARAVEL is an alternative rock band from Abbotsford, BC. Formed in May of 2016, PARAVEL began as a band with a mission of being a voice for hope and change in response to the hopelessness they saw dominating the news and the everyday. From the start, they wanted to write songs that encourage, that ask bigger questions, and that bring people together. With those ideals in mind, and influenced by bands like Switchfoot, Coldplay, U2, Mumford & Sons, One Republic, and Imagine Dragons, PARAVEL began crafting their sound; a spectrum ranging from uplifting, energetic arena rock to feel-good alternative pop. In November 2017, they took home the Fraser Valley Music Award for Best Pop Artist. Currently the band is in the middle of producing their first album and touring locally.
