Paul Jenkins

Paul Jenkins is an American songwriter hailing from Southeast Texas. Born to a music educator father and a school teacher mother, Paul spent much of his formative years in school band halls, surrounded by musicians and instruments. Not surprisingly, by the time he graduated from high school Paul knew that a life in music was what he wanted to pursue.

After making Nashville his home at age 20, it wasn’t long before Paul became a busy freelance recording engineer / producer in the Nashville Studio Community. Through those years he found himself recording with many country artists including Dolly Parton and Ricky Skaggs, as well as pop and gospel artists such as Michael McDonald, BeBe Winans and Katy Perry. Through his experience working with some of Nashville’s finest artists and songwriters, Paul began to find a love for both the songwriting community as well as the craft of the song.

In 2009 Paul’s career took an evolutionary turn, as he entered an exclusive publishing agreement with Sony ATV. In 2011 he was nominated as one of Music Row Magazine’s breakthrough songwriters of the year for his #1 song, “Don’t You Wanna Stay” performed by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson.

Since, Paul has had various chart topping singles performed by artist such as Blake Shelton, Chris Young, Joe Nichols, Thompson Square, and Rascal Flats. Paul’s songs have garnered Grammy, ACM, CMT, ACA, and NSAI awards and nominations.

Most recently, Paul launched a new publishing and production company, Bone Bone Creative, administered by Sony ATV. He is currently celebrating his company’s first #1 with Megan Moroney’s hit single “Tennessee Orange”
