Paul Kokesh

Songwriter & Executive Producer

Paul is a songwriter, producer and entrepreneur whose early influences include church hymns, radio chart toppers and his dad’s vinyl collection. He’s been awarded as a finalist in national songwriting competitions for multiple categories, including the USA Songwriting Competition (3x) and John Lennon Songwriting Contest (2x). Paul has won collegiate songwriting competitions and was selected for an intensive two-week songwriting seminar at NYU Steinhardt with writers from across the globe.

After discovering his ability to create memorable topline melodies and paint lyrical pictures, he studied songwriting, production and contemporary vocal performance at the Music Industry Recording Arts Program in St. Petersburg, FL. Paul often starts his writing process with musical “kernels” away from the confines of an instrument then molds them around the best genre and production for the song. He prides himself on being adaptable to trends and working with other writers and artists to best bring talents to the forefront of their music. Paul is currently writing and producing from New Hope, PA and will have several cuts and single releases in 2022.
