Straight from the bayou country - West Monroe, LA, Stephen Paul’s music is inspired by his cajun roots and classic country. Combining a traditional 90’s country style with a modern country sound, Stephen offers a refreshing voice to country music and its fans.
At age three, Stephen began his musical journey when his father gave him his first drum kit. Following years of involvement in music ministry at his church, Stephen began playing guitar and eventually pursued songwriting. Stephen graduated from the University of Louisiana-Monroe (ULM) in 2013 and performed with a variety of local bands during his college career. In the fall of 2014, Stephen traded the local scene of Louisiana for Music City in order to pursue his career as an artist.
In 2023, Stephen played over 175+ shows and will continue to tour in early 2024, including his debut performance at Country Fest this summer. Stephen has already hit a few career milestones, making his arena debut with Justin Moore and has shared the stage with Tim McGraw, when McGraw invited him to join the stage in singing “I Like It, I Love It” in front of 15,000+ fans at Winstock Country Music Festival. Stephen has also shared the stage with Dierks Bentley, Easton Corbin, Dylan Scott, David Lee Murphy, Chris Lane, Neal McCoy, Pat Green, and Mark Chesnutt.
Stephen has since surpassed 7 Million+ global streams across all streaming platforms with a 100k social impact. His 2023 releases, "Good For Nothin'", "Love To Learn", and "Who Needs A Bar" have caught the attention of thousands of fans and new listeners. Throughout Stephen’s career, his music has been supported by Apple Music’s "New in Country” and "The Ward Guenther Show", and Spotify’s “New Music Nashville”, "New Music Friday Country", and "Fresh Finds Country" playlists.
Stephen's upcoming release, "I'll Take The Blame" reveals a more sultry side of Stephen, encouraging listeners to slow down and take in every moment with that special someone.
