PAUL THORN BAND
Blues Rock / Southern Rock / Americana
He’s also appeared on major television shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live, been the subject ofnumerous National Public Radio (NPR) features and charted multiple times on theBillboard Top 100 and Americana RadioCharts.
Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career,pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking andthoroughly Southern American, yet also speaking universal truths.
Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricityand character – as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts ofgenius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Raised in Tupelo,Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) whonurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down backroads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory,battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television,signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed [on stages with BonnieRaitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some ofthe most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time.
In 2018, Paul released an album titled Don’t Let the Devil Ride, which he describes as “the culmination ofmy whole life in music, coming back to my roots.” It marks his first timerecording gospel music - featuring guests such as the Blind Boys of Alabama,the McCrary Sisters, and Preservation Hall Horns - and his creation of a bodyof strikingly original songs that address the foibles of human relationshipswithout necessarily favoring the sacred over the profane.
