Bluesy rock that’s decidedly Southern
Paul Thorn’s music is cherished by his many fans thanks to his down-home perspective, vivid-yet-plainspoken language and colorful characters. It helps that Paul is a colorful and distinctly Southern personality himself. He was raised in Tupelo, Miss., in the land of cotton and catfish. And churches. A preacher’s kid, Paul’s performances were generally limited to the pews until sixth grade. When he was 17, he met songwriter Billy Maddox, who became his friend and mentor. It would take several detours — working in a furniture factory, boxing, jumping out of airplanes — until Paul committed to the singer/songwriter’s life with Billy as his songwriting partner and co-producer. Paul possessed the ability to charm audiences right from the start. Not only with his music, but with the stories he tells from the stage. His latest album, Too Blessed to be Stressed, stakes out new territory with 10 songs that express more universal truths with Paul’s trademark humor and one purpose: To make people feel good.
