The LeBrain Train: 2000 Words or More with Mike and John
Episode 63 – Paul Laine
JOHN – We are joined this week by the multi-talented singer, songwriter, musician, composer, engineer, producer and all great guy, Paul Laine. We will cover his career from his 1990 solo album debut Stick It In Your Ear to his time as lead singer of Danger Danger in the 90’s, all the way up to his current band The Defiants, who just confirmed a third album is coming. We will find out about his time with Bruce Fairbairn at Little Mountain Sound Studios, his other bands Shugaazer and Darkhorse and everything in between. Come join the fun.…
MIKE – Paul Laine is a remarkable talent. At age 16 he was playing clubs. Knowing he needed money to record a good-sounding demo, he started and sold a management company, raising the needed $50,000. The tape went from MuchMusic’s Terry David Mulligan to uber-manager Bruce Allen. By age 22, he had Stick It In Your Ear produced by Bruce Fairbairn under his belt! As John says, he made the leap from solo artist to band member in 1993 when Danger Danger needed a new singer. We will be covering it all this Friday night on the LeBrain Train.
