Paul ThornHailed as the “Mark Twain of Americana,” Paul Thorn brings his gritty, gospel-infused Southern rock straight from his hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi, where he grew up as the son of a Pentecostal preacher and went on to box in more than 50 professional bouts, including one with Roberto Duran—but that’s another story. Paul’s music mixes the hard-driving boogie of the Allman Brothers with the soulful wit of John Hiatt. If you haven’t already heard him on World Café or All Things Considered, you should know that his spirited songs investigate the mysteries of human nature and explore the exalted territory of love and salvation. His latest album, Too Blessed To Be Stressed, is a feel-good tour de force. "I sin on Saturday / I repent on Sunday / Then I tell myself I won't procrastinate on Monday," he sings on "I Backslide on Friday."

 

Paul’s long-time touring band includes guitarist Bill Hinds, keyboard player Michael Graham, bassist Ralph Friedrichsen, and drummer Jeffrey Perkins. “The guys in this outfit are a tight unit and a well-oiled machine,” Paul says. “I've had the same guys in my band for more than 15 years and they are incredible musicians.” Come out and enjoy their muscular brand of roots music—bluesy, rocking, and full of heart.
