Paula Belina has been performing her spoken poetry since 1998 as well as printed off dozens of chapbooks and 39 issues of her monthly comp-lit-cut&paste zine, Streeteaters, to date. She has won a few slams, has quietly read off typed paper, has collaborated with beatboxers, has continued to move with her own poems. Paula finished her second tour across Canada in September 2006 and made a home in British-Columbia for a year studying clowning and theatre improv.  She has attended the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics (at Naropa University, Boulder, CO) and has performed in Boulder, Denver, New York, Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Vancouver, Victoria as well as been a part of the Voix D'Amerique spoken word festival in Montreal since 2003.

In 2006, "Paint a City Coat on You, my Wall" was launched as her first full length spoken word CD on the Montreal lable, Take this Hammer.  A dedicated stamp carver and self-publishing factory, you can view a collection of her zines & artwork at

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference." (Robert Frost) What is OCEANSOUL? Epic. Anthemic. High Energy Eastern Rock. Pop/Dance sensibilities... OCEANSOUL travels the path less taken by exploring a new hybrid style composed of rock, sitar, and anthemic dance melodies which will uplift you to a higher state. High energy eastern rock guitar riffs inspired mainly by Ravi Shankar, The Cult, Led Zeppelin, & Velvet Underground. A duo backed by a powerful Electronic Rythm Section, this band is on a path of their own creation...
