Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, and performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among others.
The son of a preacher man, Thorn spent much of his childhood in church, participating in multiple weekly services with his father as well as at neighboring African American congregations, where he became entranced with the music whose spirit is captured on the new album.
Paul Thorn Band is CHRIS SIMMONS - Electric, acoustic, and slide guitars, vocals; DR. LOVE - Piano, organ, and synthesizer; RALPH FRIEDRICHSEN - Bass guitar, vocals; and JEFFREY PERKINS - Drums and percussion.
