Based in Chicago, Paul Mutzabaugh has worked as a professional musician for nearly 20 years in both live and studio settings, enjoying a variety of genres and disciplines.  Versatile in a myriad of keyboard instruments – acoustic piano, electric pianos, Hammond B3 organ, synthesizers, and accordion – he has also developed a unique voice on the electric bass in recent years.  Additional doublings include acoustic & electric guitars, as well as auxiliary percussion.  

Paul also works consistently as a producer and engineer in service of a wide range of artists.  Assisting others to realize their creative vision in recorded form is a particularly fulfilling aspect of his music-making.  Pinguino Studio was developed to meet pro-level recording and production demands for projects in need of overdub tracking, digital editing, and mixing.  A full gear list is available HERE.  

Paul holds a Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition from DePaul University and is a former marching member of the Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps ('97-'00, tenor drums).  He is a member of the American Federation of Musicians, Local 10-208 (Chicago). 

Currently, Paul performs and/or records with the following artists & ensembles (click on names for further information):
