Born and raised in Oshawa, Ontario, Paul Giulietti has been playing in rock bands since he was 12 years-old. As a founding member of some young rockers called “The In-Class”, he performed at a handful of all-age venues across the Durham region such as The Tilted Kilt, Mad Café, Wasted Space, and Oshawa Memorial Park. Paul then joined the not-for-profit organization, Broken Arts to support the local art and music scene. After graduating from Paul Dwyer High School, he attended Huron University College and attained a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and philosophy. While attending university, Paul continued to write and perform songs under the pseudonym “Jules McCools” and he began to develop a following. After university and a personal support working job, Paul moved back to Oshawa to pursue Jules McCools Music as a solo career.
Through whimsical and bleak lyrics, Jules McCools strums his guitar along to emotional rock songs that get feet moving and heads banging. Inspired by indie rock and pop punk artists, Jules McCools uses humour and light-hearted metaphors to express complex feelings and profound existential anxieties.
