Paul Creighton is a Portland based vocalist/songwriter who has been performing professionally for the past 10 years. Unsigned Magazine calls Creighton “an artist whose tenor has shades of Marvin and Stevie” while the Willamette Week more aptly states “G-dd-mn, can Paul Creighton sing.” He currently tours with The Motet, Joey Porter’s Funk Tributes (Juno What!?) and fronts Portland’s soul-pop mainstay, Intervision, and has opened for multiplatinum artists Lifehouse, as well as the Neville Brothers, Little Richard, McKinley, Garage Majahal, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ghostland Observatory, among other nationally touring acts.
Paul received his Master’s of Education from the University of Oregon, studied vocal performance as a Laurel Scholar at Portland State University, and he is a student of Tom Blaylock’s NW Institute of Voice. He has received multiple songwriting awards with the Intervision project, including an Independent Music Award for Best R&B and was a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition. He currently resides in SE Portland with his wife and is a registered nurse with Providence Health System.
Intervision, Paul's original project, is the collective efforts of musicians devoted to the art of sonic quality, blending the diversity of their histories with the unified direction of their artistic endeavors. He believes that coalescing fine ingredients with a refined recipe can deliver an exceptional musicality. Featuring a cast of professional players, Intervision draws upon the strengths of its members to create a soulful, groovy playlist of pop music for adults.
Intervision's 2010 self-titled release introduces the audience to the concept of Intervision in its purist form. Combining elements of soul, jazz, and funk within the construct of adult-flavored pop, Intervision reminds listeners of a time when a record had a character, when the listener wasn't asked to choose between a cool groove and an introspective lyric, when playing ones' instrument well was not only revered, but a natural component of the music scene.
