Paul Meany (born July 2, 1976) is the lead singer and keyboardist for the indie band Mutemath.[1] He is also one of the co-founders of Franklin, TN based independent label Teleprompt Records. Prior to forming Mutemath with drummer Darren King, Meany was the keyboardist and backing vocalist for the band Earthsuit and provided the same for the beginning stages of another Adam LaClave-fronted band, Macrosick. Meany has also co-produced tracks for Jeremy Larson and another Earthsuit spin-off, Club of the Sons.

In 2003, Meany collaborated on an LP entitled, "Elevator Music," released by Victory Fellowship Church as a fund-raising initiative to support victims of Hurricane Katrina. The album, comprising fifteen contemporary worship tracks, was recorded live at Victory Fellowship Church, with Meany providing lead vocals.[2]

After Mutemath and Warner Bros. Records parted ways in 2015 and the dissolution of the Teleprompt partnership, Meany launched his own independent label Wojtek Records based in New York. Mutemath's fourth full length album and follow up remix project were both released via Wojtek in partnership with Caroline Records. Meany has continued to work on various projects outside of Mutemath, producing tracks for Forenn and KiND, as well as the debut EP from former bandmate Jonathan Allen. Meany was the featured vocalist on Seven Lions & Jason Ross' single "Higher Love" released on January 13, 2017.
