Joe Paulik
Joe Paulik

Moguls Grille & Tap Room | Lutsen MN

Songwriting has always come naturally to me. From my earliest childhood memories there were songs playing in my head that I didn’t hear anywhere else. When I learned what songwriting was, I recognized it as a calling, a command to remember and write these songs down. I sensed some greater purpose for them.
