Paul has programmed and mixed live sound for some of the most popular musicians in history, including Vince Gill, Joe Diffie, Quebe Sisters, Daryle Singletary, Aaron Tippin, Daryl Worley, Bela Fleck, Shenandoah, P.O.D., and White Collar Sideshow.
A native of Fort Smith, Arkansas, Paul Wells lived in Memphis, Tennessee, for six years before settling in Alma, Arkansas. A precocious kid, Paul was changing light bulbs at three and running sound systems at eleven. He had talent, yes, but also passion to match, and Paul continued to learn all he could about audio and electrical engineering, eventually finding work in audio equipment repair and sound system integration. He worked for major audio corporations rewiring their equipment in-house so they didn’t have to ship it off to large firms. He has specialized experience in home theater and commercial audio, having provided services to arenas, hospitals, and schools.
Paul owns his own audio visual business, Wells Audio Visual (WAV).
Paul has spent years connecting ear to mind, making his work for Fountain Square House® invaluable. He can mentally disassemble the sound pouring out of the monitors and pick up on subtle nuances that others might miss. He’s able to pinpoint frequencies without a reference point, he finds problems instantly, and understands how to assemble a great mix.
With his technical skills and experience, he works diligently maintaining and upgrading systems at the studio. Paul soundproofs rooms and windows, enhances acoustics, and upgrades wiring during the ongoing studio enhancement projects. He is a researcher, always challenging himself to learn more and improve himself in every situation.
Paul provides every client with top notch service. The relationship between the two engineers at Fountain Square House®, Paul and Eric Bragg, is based on mutual respect, a history of integrity, and a like-minded aggressive pursuit of their fascination for the sound and science of music.
Paul married in 2013 and he and his wife, Rebecca, added their first daughter in 2014. The next year brought an array of surprises to the family as they eagerly adopted three beautiful girls. Paul lovingly supports his family of five and is a dedicated husband and father who honors Christ in all he does.
