Paul Edwards aka Francis Coyote Shivers was born on September 24, 1965 in Toronto, Canada. He produced the first single by the band Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet. The b-side to that single, "Having an Average Weekend", became the theme to the television show The Kids in the Hall. Shivers went on to produce the band's next two albums.

Shivers also played guitar in the instrumental rock band Sharkskin, which released three EPs and a greatest hits compilation. He then moved to Los Angeles, California with record producer Daniel Lanois, who later would produce the Shivers song "Sugarhigh" for the Empire Records soundtrack.

Shivers then moved to Amsterdam, where he lived on a boat in the canals until returning to New York City to play guitar for The Conspiracy (a band notable for being the first non-Soviet band signed to the Soviet state-run record label Melodiya, just after the fall of the Berlin Wall).

After the demise of that band, Shivers began acting, appearing in a bit part in Johnny Mnemonic with Keanu Reeves and co-starring in Empire Records with Rene Zellweger and Liv Tyler. At the time, Shivers was married to Bebe Buell, which made him Tyler's step-father. He also made a cameo appearance in Smut.

Shivers returned to the music industry in New York City, recruiting a back-up band to create and record his first solo album on Mutiny Records, the self-titled Coyote Shivers. He worked with Billy Ficca (Richard Hell, Television) and Jack Pedler on drums, and Dagon Fulcher on bass.

He performed two slots opening for KISS on their re-union tour, then began writing songs for a second album, releasing limited edition CD singles and the 5-song CD 1/2 A Rock & Roll Record.

Since 1998, Shivers had lived with second wife Pauley Perrette in Los Angeles. They have been separated since 2004 and Perrette is seeking a divorce. New Orleans-born Perrette had done TV guest spots and small movie roles but usually had to soften her Goth look. She is now the star of the hit CBS show NCIS as "Abby" along with Mark Harmon.

He has recently finished starring in Down And Out With The Dolls directed by Kurt Voss (also starring Lemmy Killmister of Motörhead and Inger Lorre of the Nymphs).
