We are Paravel


PARAVEL is an alternative pop rock band from Vancouver, BC - their sound a unique blend of the uplifting, energetic arena rock of Coldplay, The Fray, and Switchfoot, and the alternative pop sensibilities of Ed Sheeran and Dermot Kennedy. 

The band was formed in May 2016 by frontman Patrick Jolicoeur, guitarist Matt Taylor, and drummer Kelton Kowalchuk, who all began playing together in church bands, but wanted to begin inspiring people with their own music. Today PARAVEL is still comprised of that original 3, with the addition of Paul Engels on the bass.

In November 2017, they took home the Fraser Valley Music Award for Best Pop Artist.
