St. Paul & the Broken Bones

A tight ensemble with a gospel-tinged, retro-soul garage sound complete with horns and a dynamic lead singer, Birmingham, Alabama's St. Paul & the Broken Bones' stirring live shows quickly garnered them a fan following when the band was formed in 2011. Led by vocalist Paul Janeway, an impassioned soul singer with James Brown-like stage moves and command, and also consisting of Browan Lollar (guitar, vocals), Andrew Lee (drums and percussion), Jesse Phillips (bass), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), and Ben Griner (trombone and tuba), the sextet self-released an EP before signing with Single Lock Records. The label issued their debut full-length, Half the City, early in 2014, and it reached number 56 on the Billboard 200 as well as charting in the Netherlands. Recorded in Birmingham, Alabama in 2013, the EP Live and in Person!!! also appeared in 2014, with Live from the Alabama Theatre following year later. The Broken Bones' sophomore studio LP took on a more socially conscious tone and added a string quartet and choir to the palette. It also saw the group expand to an octet with Al Gamble on keys, Jason Mingledorff on woodwinds, and Chad Fisher replacing Griner on trombone. Sea of Noise was released in 2016 on RECORDS, a label newly co-founded by veteran music exec Barry Weiss and SONGS Music Publishing. ~ Steve Leggett & Marcy Donelson
