“justplainpaul” (JPP) is a musician, a father, and husband in equal order. His journey in the pursuit of music started at a young age, when his parents brought home a Commodore 64 computer. Many games included great music, and his ear was locked in. His desire to learn more about music became reality with a small keyboard, and eventually a guitar. These tools forged the way to become a musician, and he has performed with many bands and projects since that time. His current projects are justplainpaul – a retro synth persona locked in Neon 80s flair, and Rivetshack, an Indie/Rock group out of Indianapolis. Both projects allow him to engage in his enjoyment of synths and guitars, where he lives happily ever after.
