Abbotsford band Paravel to release another single

Alternative pop-rock band launches ‘Talk’ on Jan. 24

An Abbotsford alternative pop-rock band is releasing a new single on Jan. 24.

Paravel will release “Talk,” which they describe as “a vulnerable and rhythmically driven song about not trying to go it alone when things aren’t going well.”

“The new single captures a certainty in life by telling a simple, yet profound, story,” the band says.

The single will be available on Spotify and through the band’s website at

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 composed of Jolicoeur and Taylor, with the addition of Lorenzo Enns on the drums.

They describe their sound as “a unique blend of the uplifting, energetic arena rock of Coldplay, The Fray, and Switchfoot, and the alternative pop sensibilities of Bastille, Ed Sheeran and Dermot Kennedy.”

The band has been featured at the Jam in Jubilee concert summer series and other local venues. In November 2017, they took home the Fraser Valley Music Award for Best Pop Artist.
