Stan Big Dog Paulsen
Growing up in Southern California during the '70s and '80s, Stan's passion for music began with his love for playing the drums and listening to Linda Ronstadt. This era of music had a profound impact on him, and he was heavily influenced by legendary rock bands like AC/DC, Van Halen, Rush, and King Crimson, as well as classic '80s groups such as The Cars, Blondie, Joe Jackson, and U2.
Over the years, Stan has played in a variety of musical settings, including school symphonic bands, jazz bands, high school garage bands, blues groups, and orchestra pits for theatrical productions. Classic rock 'n roll has also been a part of his musical journey, and he has been a member of several bands in the past decade, including Up in the Night, Spanky's Garage Band, 7th Street Blues Band, See Alice, and most recently, Slow Ride.
In 2023, Stan joined Ronstadt.Live, and he is thoroughly enjoying the experience. "Studying Linda Ronstadt's music has been a pleasure," he said in a recent interview. "Her vocals are off the charts! Learning the drum parts has shown me that the music has depth and texture not readily apparent to the casual listener."
Along with his passion for music, Stan is also a family man, with four daughters and six grandchildren.

I was born and raised in Utah County, Utah. Married to my high school sweetheart and have 4 amazing kids. I have enjoyed singing and dancing for as long as I can remember. My mother taught me and my sisters ,including Amber Beck, to sing together with harmonies in acapella and karaoke. We sang together for numerous occasions such as weddings, Christmas parties and funerals. Amber and I would sing duets quite often for school choir and in school plays as well. We started a family band with mom and sisters, called Choice then later Little Wasatch, and that’s when I learned to play the bass guitar. We made up our own music and did some covers. We made our first album and it was recorded by Al Vanderbeek. I sang harmonies with Amber in Trailerpark Rebels and traveled to Los Angeles where we participated in interviews on the internet, radio and live showings.
Singing with Amber has always been one of my favorite things and I am so grateful that this opportunity has come along. The band and the management is amazing, making this experience even more extraordinary.
My love for music began at a young age through listening to my sister's albums. I recall singing along to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons with my 3-year-old voice hitting the high notes. My musical taste expanded to include bands such as The Doors, The Monkees, Iron Butterfly, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, and The Beatles. Albums were my passion, and in my teenage years, I found a new love at the Ice House in Provo. I enjoyed getting to know the bands and spending time with the musicians. I was trained by the owner, Kyle Butler, to book bands, which eventually became my livelihood. I was asked to be the Light and Sound man for Copperfield and then went on tour with Fabian all over the country. Music had become a part of me, but the emergence of disco in the live band world forced me to leave it behind. I transitioned to the finance world and became a Regional VP for GMAC, but my love for music never left me. In 2010, I decided to follow my passion and began producing concerts at Covey Center and Scera Shell. As Executive Producer, I organized tribute shows for the Beatles, Eagles, Led Zeppelin, and John Mayer. I also started the first MusicCon in SLC, which drew in 2000 people and featured Autograph, Quiet Riot, The Dickies, Bow Wow Wow, SideDeal with Jeffery Skunk Baxter, Saving Able, James Otto, Billy Dean, Monte Powell, Ana Wilson, and 45 local bands playing on Country Stage. The event covered 68000 sq ft and included breakout sessions and booths.
For the last three years, I have been the VP of Artist Development for Integrity Music Management. During this time, I have managed various artists such as Cactus Jack LaMarr, The New Connection, Ofi, Ryan Stream, and Tom Proctor. I also played a role in forming Ronstadt.live, and I am excited about what the future holds.
