Paul Stephens
Biography

A longtime Yukoner, Paul is a well-known and much-loved bassist who has enjoyed performing over the past 40 years with a variety of artists including Jerry Doucette, Terry Sylvester, Dave Stone, Comox, Going South, Big Soul and many more.

He has joined Matthew Lien in recording studios and concert tours in both Canada and Taiwan, including a concert for an audience of 30,000 to help raise funds for Taiwan’s 1999 earthquake recovery. When Paul nearly lost several fingers in a carpentry accident, it was his commitment to touring with Matthew in Taiwan that drove his recovery. Doctors later declared his bass playing as the sole reason for his remarkable recovery.

When not playing bass, Paul can be found golfing and enjoying life under the northern lights.
