7/52: St. Paul and the Broken Bones

St. Paul and the Broken Bones is a seven-piece soul band based out of Birmingham, Alabama.  The band is composed of Paul Janeway (vocals) and Browan Lollar (guitar) and includes a keyboardist, trombone and trumpet player, plus drums.  The band was formed in 2012.

After major stories by NPR and a national television debut on CBS This Morning: Saturday, their debut album (released on February 18, 2014) reached #3 on the iTunes Top Album Charts and #56 on Billboard 200 Charts.

Last Tuesday night, they played the Roseland Theater in Portland and Chick and I had a blast!

They have this old school soul, R & B vibe and sang everything from Otis Redding to a cover of "Fake Plastic Trees" by Radiohead!

If you get a chance to see them, please check them out.  They are a great live band.
