BETTER TOGETHER

Technical Expertise + Artistic Vision + Servant’s Hearts

Eric and Victoria met in 2005 while each was pursuing their musical interests. Victoria was recording her own album in a local Arkansas studio, while Eric was producing music in downtown Indianapolis. They met via e-mail conversations concerning the recording process. Both having been single for several years, the conversations grew in length as they shared this common interest, and the interest in each other grew, along the way.

Eric and Vickie Bragg

Fountain Square House® owners Eric and Victoria Bragg

They fell in love and married in 2006. They joined forces in their endeavors to create a life-giving recording studio for 3.5 years. Finally, in 2010, they built the foundation of what is today, known as Fountain Square House, named after “Fountain Square” in downtown Indianapolis, where Eric first began his own studio business.  This time, experience, planning, and hard, diligent work resulted in a very fine, well-designed facility and excellent business model. With Victoria’s heart for artists and understanding of finances coupled with Eric’s expertise in the technical aspects of music production, their unity is a perfect match for success and integrity in the exciting world of music.

Eric Bragg

musician, recording/mixing engineer, producer, electronics engineer

From orchestral, to jazz, to R&B, folk, rock, metal, rap, and more, Eric has the experience and expertise to take a song to its full potential, often beyond his clients’ expectations.

Eric Bragg

Eric Bragg, Fountain Square House® co-owner

Eric’s approach to recorded song design is not the usual budget studio approach. He listens closely to the desires of the musical artists and respects their wishes. Depending upon the artist’s needs, he creates a path for building songs alongside the artists, and includes them in the process along the way, ensuring they get the professional service they are paying for. Furthermore, full production artists always receive evaluation mixes at the end, which they are allowed to tweak in the studio at no extra charge.

Eric was born in Dallas, TX, though his family moved several times over the years. Eric started his musical performance career at age eight, playing organ and piano. He started his musical production career at age 13, splicing wires between audio machines to bounce stereo signals across channels. Soon after he began experimenting with sound effects and writing and performing his own music. By the mid 1970’s, Eric had acquired technical expertise in sound systems and was being hired by local venues and schools to set up and engineer various productions. In 1986, his military rock band drew local fame for their musical prowess and sound, performing many epic cover songs that were beyond the ability of most other bands.

In the mid 1990s Eric earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at Purdue University. His studies in acoustics intensified, and during the next 10 years he focused on electronic systems, acoustic design, and professional audio production, eventually building a small recording studio as an outlet for his need to create.

Eric has been recording commercially since 2003 and producing music since 2006. With years of experience in audio engineering, in-depth knowledge of acoustics, and extensive digital signal proficiency, Eric has the ability to create recordings with a polished and professional sound, well-suited for commercial distribution in today’s competitive environment. He now lives out his creative desires and inspirations through the artists with whom he works.

Victoria Bragg, co-owner of Fountain Square House®

Victoria Bragg

guitarist, banjo player, vocalist, singer/songwriter

Skilled guitarist and 2nd place banjo champion (2005 East Iowa International Bluegrass Festival), Victoria Bragg brings fresh and fiery energy to her music, both new songs she has written as well as classics, some written long ago.

Over the years, as Victoria’s knowledge of and experience in the professional music industry has grown, she has expanded her capabilities to include entrepreneurial, managerial, and administrative abilities. She enjoys offering guidance and encouragement to those starting out in business. Her ever-expanding network of friends, colleagues, and artists provides her inspiration and inflames her passion to build Fountain Square House® into a refuge where artists come together to create and record their own music.

Born in Neosho, MO, she grew up on ranches located in Missouri, South Dakota, and Oklahoma. Tractors, horses, and cattle were every day elements of her life. Her farm experiences developed character, perseverance, a strong work ethic, and a don’t ever quit attitude. Throughout high school and after graduation, Victoria traveled with a bluegrass band entertaining many followers and enjoying music festivals. Later, while raising her son Bryan, Victoria continued to write and play music while she earned a living as a financial administrator and resided in the Texas Panhandle. The restoration she found after her divorce prepared her to help others overcome their own fears, depression, isolation, and feelings of low self-esteem. Humble beginnings proved to be superb training ground for building a very real soul, and to this day Victoria loves to interact with people as she seeks out opportunities to touch the world with music.

Victoria’s living into her calling now, as she partners with her husband, Eric, to help musicians, locally and from abroad, find their own unique musical expression, enhance their God-given gifts, and share them with others.

Victoria is the author  of a book titled, Escape from Darkness – A Perspective from the Couch. She also serves on a local church worship team, entertains local audiences at festivals, coffee shops, and private gigs (in a duo called “The Tones”), and enthusiastically undertakes her most important role ever, being MiMi to her grandson!

Paul Wells

Paul Wells, engineer and systems technician at Fountain Square House®

Paul Wells

drummer, mix engineer, audio technician

Magic happens when he is working behind the mixing console!  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.

Rebecca Wells

Rebecca Wells, artist liaison at Fountain Square House®

Rebecca Wells

artist liaison

Lifelong musician, music director, wife, and mom, Rebecca Wells, has a natural gift for encouraging and cultivating young musicians. She understands not only the deep aspects of musical creativity, but also the environmental factors and interactions within musical groups. Rebecca truly has a gift that can’t be taught, connecting dreamers to the right source – and that’s why she is the Artist Liaison at Fountain Square House®!

Rebecca is a native of the Fort Smith, Arkansas area. She is well educated, having graduated high school with honors, and studied three years at seminary, where the staff recognized her talent and experience by placing her in a teaching position over a team of musicians and vocalists. Rebecca taught all aspects of environmental teamwork in musical/vocal groups, including the more abstract areas of passion, purpose, and ethics.

She plays several instruments, (flute, piccolo, saxophone, piano) and has spent five years working under the direction of a seasoned, well respected worship director whose team was 100 strong.  She has assisted students struggling to write their first songs.

Rebecca learned her work ethic early, starting in her family’s small diner when she was a sophomore in high school.  Later she went on to serve as a teacher, business building associate, and now works with her husband Paul to build their business, Wells Audio/Visual, Inc.

Rebecca emanates a fierce passion to make others’ dreams come true. Her undying devotion and huge heart for others is evident, as she is a source of encouragement to all whom she comes in contact with.
