St. Paul and the Broken Bones
Celtic Connections welcomes the soulful Southern rock group St. Paul & The Broken Bones to The Old Fruitmarket on 4th February!
About St. Paul and the Broken Bones
While playing in Birmingham, Alabama, as part of the alternative soul outfit The Secret Dangers, Paul Janeway (vocals) and Jesse Phillips (bass) collaborated on a new project intended to be their "last hurrah" before focusing on other careers.
Something about the duo clicked, and they brought other members into the band to record their first EP Greetings from St. Paul & The Broken Bones in 2012. They had never played a live show.
With flashy outfits and heartfelt grittiness, band leaders Janeway and Phillips have guided the eight-piece ensemble, which now includes Browan Lollar (guitar), Kevin Leon (drums), Al Gamble (keys), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Amri Ansari (saxophone) and Chad Fisher (trombone).
With powerful vocals (Janeway) and the band’s magnetism, the band soon began touring around the country. In 2014, St. Paul & the Broken Bones released their debut album Half the City in 2014 and its follow-up Sea of Noise in 2016.
An aggressive touring schedule, both nationally and internationally, eventually led to a stint as the opening act for the Rolling Stones. Since then, they band has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, Austin City Limits and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
To date, St. Paul & The Broken Bones has released three albums and two EPs. In their latest, Young Sick Camilla (2018), the band branches out into funk and disco but still offers more of their trademark soulful Southern sound.
