About St. Paul & The Broken Bones
Led by dynamic front man Paul Janeway, St. Paul & the Broken Bones has forged a reputation as a must see live act, headlining sold-out shows across the United States and Europe, while also supporting acts such as the Rolling Stones, and performing at major festivals, including Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Lollapalooza.
The Birmingham, Alabama-based band’s 2014 debut, Half The City, featured Janeway’s impassioned singing atop a blend of ‘60s soul fire and otherworldly grooves inspired by the likes of Sly Stone, David Bowie and Prince. The album received critical acclaim from outlets including NPR, Rolling Stone and Esquire.
Their latest full-length, Sea of Noise, is a heart-pounding infusion of R&B, cosmic soul, funk and psychedelic rock & roll, packed with songs that witness a deepening and broadening of the unit’s musical reach and lyrical concerns.
St. Paul & the Broken Bones has appeared on CBS Saturday Morning, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CONAN.
About Allen Stone
On his third full-length album, soul artist Allen Stone proves himself deeply devoted to making uncompromisingly soulful music that transcends all pop convention. Made in collaboration with Swedish soul singer/songwriter/phenom Magnus Tingsek, Radius captures the warm energy of that creative connection and transports the listener to a higher and more exalted plane. Radius Deluxe now includes seven exciting bonus tracks including the previously unreleased songs “Voodoo” and “Faithful” as well as a new version of Stone’s energetic single “Freedom”.
The New York Times said the Chewelah, Washington-bred 28-year-old’s lyrics on Radius “promise honest sentiments, grooves built with physical instruments and a gospel-rooted determination to uplift ... glimmers of Al Green, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton, Prince and a bit of Sting."
Tearing through nearly 600 shows in just two years - including sold out performances at LA’s Ace Hotel and NYC’s Apollo Theater – Allen Stone is determined to make 2017 yet another impactful year of writing and performance.
