It has been said that a Paul Thorn concert is like "taking a 6-pack to church," as evidenced by his song "Mission Temple Fireworks Stand." The first thing you notice is the voice, distinctively soulful and funky, the voice of a man who has walked a long, hot span over dusty Mississippi country roads. Thorn is the second biggest thing to come out of Tupelo, MS.
"Paul is one of my favorite artists!" �"Bonnie Raitt
Kris Kristofferson, Mark Knopfler, Huey Lewis and Robert Earl Keen all have raved about him as well.
• New album Pimps and Preachers was #1 at Americana Radio for 3 weeks and has spent 7 weeks in Top 5!
• P&P debuted at #83 on the Billboard Top 200, #24 on the Billboard Rock Chart, and #11 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart!
• A favorite guest on the "Bob and Tom" syndicated radio show, as well as "Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues Radio Hour."
Born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured a young Elvis generations before, Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Durán on national television, opened for Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, and John Prine among many other headliners, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time.
