Welcome to the Aeolian Phoenix Sessions
The Aeolian Phoenix Sessions take centre stage… in the comfort of your own home. Every month we premier at least four productions recorded at Aeolian’s studios or in the artist’s home.
The Aeolian Phoenix Sessions are intended to provide patrons with a cross-section of the music going experience. From classical to jazz, rock to country, and bluegrass to folk, the Sessions aim to bring music back into your home and heart.
Interested in one show only? Trust us: you’ll like what you see. Try the Phoenix Sessions all month and experience a few productions that you might never have seen in person.
Our goal was to reignite live music and get artists on stage, technicians behind the soundboard and our patrons on their feet listening to extraordinary talent in extraordinary times.

Paul Langille & Paul Simswww.paullangille.com/
Paul Langille & Paul Sims present a wide variety of songs taking you on a roller coaster of emotions sprinkled with Paul’s usual self-deprecating humour. With a high-octane guitar style and a powerful voice that showcases both the warmth of a crooner and the strength of a seasoned blues singer, Paul Langille knows how to get to the heart of a song. The playlist includes Langille’s own compositions but also a handful of covers. He expects plenty of audience interaction as people join in on the chorus of their favourite tunes. Paul Sims tasteful and often intricate guitar accompaniment is the perfect complement to Langille’s entertaining choice of repertoire.
Paul took to the stage at a young age, singing and playing guitar in dance halls, service clubs, and numerous other venues in and around his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. In the early ‘70s Paul came to London and frequently played at the legendary Smales Pace Coffeehouse on Clarence Street. He became part of the vibrant folk scene that included Laura Smith, Willie P Bennett, Stan Rogers, Rick Taylor, David Bradstreet and many more.
In late 2001, Paul was involved in the collaborative recording/performance of Tears of a Thousand Years that raised funds for the relief effort in New York following the events of September 11th.
Be it performing solo at Folk and Blues Festivals, singing Jazz standards with Orchestra London, or growling out the Blues with various bands and duos, his originality and style always shine through. Paul’s music has taken him throughout Canada, USA, Europe, and the United Arab Emirates.
Over the years, Paul Langille has won numerous accolades and awards, including the prestigious AMPAC (Advertising Music Producers Association of Canada) award in 1986 for his Labatt’s Blue commercial. He was nominated for the COCA (Canadian Organization of Campus Activities) Top Contemporary Artist of the Year award, 1988. Paul has been nominated 8 times in the Singer/Songwriter and the Blues category at the Jack Richardson London Music Awards (now known as the Forest City London Music Awards). In 2008, Paul won the Jack Richardson Award for best Contemporary Singer/Songwriter. Paul’s recording “Pine & Locke” pays homage to his hometown of Hamilton, ON. Paul is a gifted songwriter and a unique song stylist with a powerful vocal presence. His guitar playing is solid, creative, and intuitively linked to the soul of the song.
Paul’s most recent album, released in 2018, was recorded live at the Princess Avenue Playhouse in St. Thomas with his duo partner Paul Sims and is available from www.paullangille.com
