Paul Hagy - Studio431 on SoundBetter

I have played/toured/recorded with over 50+ major label recording artist like: SheDaisy, LittleBigTown, Joy Williams (Civil Wars), Mindy McCready, Chris Cagle, David Pittman (American Idol), Sara Evans, Chuck Wicks, Scott Krippayne, Brian Littrel (Backstreet Boys), Twila Paris, Nichole Nordeman, Natalie Grant, John Tesh, etc.

I have played with over 50 major label recording artists and performed on shows such as Good Morning America, The View, Grand Ole Opry, Sam’s Place, TBN, GMA's, and the BBC.
All that to say, playing live and recording are two completely different animals.
Coming up with great memorable guitar parts and sounds that seem as if they were written as part of the song itself is not a skill that every guitar player or musician possesses.
My job is to make you sound great by complimenting your voice and your song, and I have spent the last 23 years working on that very thing in Nashville studios and my own.
Please take a listen to my demonstration reel, included on this page. It includes examples from many genres to help you get an idea of my work. I am proficient in electric and acoustic guitars/fingerpicking and enjoy stacking both together in addition to all the other stringed instruments I own to make your project sound like a record.

Let me make your songs come to life and get you the attention your music deserves.
I take great pride in the details of every project I work on, whether it be single song demos to full length records, and I know you will be happy with the results. I can make your songs sound like hits!

Tell me about your project and how I can help, I would love to hear from you.

Endorse Paul Hagy - Studio431
  1. Review by Joe (JoJoHo) Hogue

    What can I say about Paul. As a Performing Musician or a Studio Player he is the easiest to work with and always brings his best game. No matter what project I had Paul work on he always delivered exactly what I needed and was a blast to work with! So as a Grammy and Emmy Award winning music producer I Highly recommend Mr Hagy! - Joe

  2. Review by Zak Lloyd

    Paul is a phenomenal player. Trust in Paul to come up with concise, memorable and familiar parts for your music. Whatever the style is Paul has you covered. It is hard to find a well vetted, gigged and studio friendly guitarist but in Paul Hagy you have exactly that. Can't recommend him enough!

  3. Review by Dave Pittman

    Coming off of the show, American Idol, Paul was very instrumental in getting my debut record out. The creative genius he brought to each of my songs was phenomenal. He knew exactly what I was going for and delivered it with style, class, expertise and professionalism. It was a privelage to work with him, and I recommend him to anyone. He has a great attitude, and is an incredible guy all around!

    Paul and I have worked together both on the road and in the studio. He is a gifted musician and a great guy. Great sounds and tone, as well as super easy to work with - very highly recommended! -scottk

  5. Review by Mariea Watkins

    Paul was very essential when I recorded my debut album, titled, "Soon". Not only did he do all of the guitar tracks for me (except one), he has recorded other tracks for me on other projects I've produced. I highly recommend him. He's very professional, and I love his work!

  6. Review by Bruce Muckala

    I've worked with Paul on two album projects and the process and results has been a dream. Paul is very conscientious and detailed in his sounds and adhering the to spirit of the song. I can't say enough about the professionalism Paul demonstrates as well as his musical abilities. Highly recommended from me. - Bruce
