If you've never heard Paul Thorn, check him out!
"The best-kept secret in the music business"—Kris Kristofferson
Paul Thorn is the modern wild man of Southern music. He's had
quite a life! He skydives. He got into the ring with Roberto "Hands of
Steel" Duran on national television. (Both ended up at Atlantic City
Medical Center, and Paul reaped a great song, "I'd Rather Be a Hammer
Than a Nail.") He's the son of a Pentecostal preacher who rode the
tent-revival circuit. He paints. He had his first singing gig at age
three. He comes from Tupelo, Mississippi and absorbed the power of
gospel music just like another famous native of that town. And he ties
it all together in original songs, masterpieces of gutbucket
storytelling country and soul with a fearless confessional streak (and
often very funny). Thom Jurek of the All Music Guide calls Paul Thorn "a
soul singer who can slip down into the murk and mess of human emotions
with style and aplomb."
Thanks to all!
