Marc Paradis

Hailing from an inconspicuous spot in Northwest Ontario, Marc started playing in bands while in High School. This was the beginning of the "Souls of Inspyration", a band that went on to live and play together for 7 years, playing at the world's fair in Osaka Japan and recording a full-length album in 1970.


Eventually, after time in Quebec and Saskatchewan, playing with a number of bands, always music rich and money poor, Marc migrated to Whitehorse in 1980 where he joined the iconic Kopper King house band "Goin' South". Marc has since done time with a lot of other local players and groups, notably "Inconnu", "Soir de Semaine" and "Jerry Alfred and the Medicine Beat" with whom he won a Juno in 1995. Many recording sessions and countless gigs later Marc is still active in the local music scene and happy to be participating in the "Soul Migration" project.
