About Us x
Mind Machine Music was formed in 2006 by Chris Paulson.

Chris attended McNally Smith College Of Music in St. Paul, Minnesota with a major in Music Business before moving into the business as a College Radio Promotions Representative with Universal Records. While in college he worked with progressive/alternative group Wake as band manager through an internship with Bill Berry who managed Minneapolis band Skywind.

In 2004 Chris accepted a position with WEA (Warner Electra Atlantic) as the assistant to the Video Manager who overseas all aspect of label video releases in the Midwest region before being promoted to Artist Development Representative in the Kansas City/Omaha region.

Chris worked in Artist Development for 2 years with artists such as Avenged Sevenfold, Mastodon, Slayer, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Shinedown and many others under the WEA label umbrella that housed Warner Brothers, Atlantic, Roadrunner and Lava among many others.

After starting Mind Machine Music in 2006, Kansas City metal band Moire signed a management deal with Mind Machine Music and also released Public Execution via Mind Machine Records in 2006. Under Mind Machine, Moire expanded their fan base, which was already solid in the Kansas City metro area, to Omaha, Des Moines and other surrounding areas and Public Execution became the bands most successful release to date.

After the success of Moire, Mind Machine was contacted by Lawrence, KS based Sidewise. In 2007, Sidewise became part of the Mind Machine family and released their second full length album Siren via Mind Machine Records in the summer of 2007. Sidewise embarked on a two week tour following the release of the CD hitting cities such as Omaha, Des Moines, Topeka, Columbia, Tulsa, Minneapolis, Chicago and finished the tour with an opening slot for Wes Borland's 'Black Light Burns' at The Static Bar in Kansas City.

In 2007 Mind Machine Music moved it's recording studio location to Watertown, SD. Located just between Sioux Falls, SD and Fargo, ND has become one of the most renowned studios in the region. Known for providing a clean, professional sounding product while allowing the artist complete control and comfortability during their projects has been the philosophy of Mind Machine Music Studio from day one and artists continue to appreciate the ease and quality that has come to be expected.
