Joe Paulson


headJoe Paulson is on a mission.  He wants his audience to walk away from his shows thinking, “That song just expressed how I’ve always felt.”


An Indianapolis native, Paulson first began ticklin’ the ivories at the tender age of 6.  It wasn’t until he was 18 years old and on the cusp of enrolling at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana that he started delivering his soulful, introspective melodies as a piano pop-rock artist.  In the fall of 2012, he released The Fallout EP, a collection of four piano driven ballads showcasing his songwriting virtuosity.  Shortly after that release, he began touring at venues and festivals in countless cities and festivals all over Indiana, including providing local support for the likes of Sixpence None the Richer, Andrew Belle, Green River Ordinance, the Rhett Walker Band, and Phil Wickham.


Paulson brings in all aspects of his life into his writing.  As you listen to one of his songs, you might hear his morning run, or him sitting down to read about sports, or maybe the clicks of his keyboard at work, but whatever you hear will be a part of his life.  While never having studied music as a subject, Paulson is definitely a novice of music.  With every artist he listens to, he gains knowledge.  While Paulson’s music is rich in technicality and showmanship, the lyrics are crafted specifically for the sake of expressing the most profound aspects of life in a  manner that connects with the listener.  Music, to him, is a passion, and he intends on expressing it to the fullest.  His sophomore EP, The Fallout, is now available on iTunes and other online vendors.  Find out more about Joe Paulson at
