St. Paul And The Broken Bones: Don't Mean A Thing + Everybody Knows (The River Song)

I'm often impressed, even thrilled when searching for bands/artists to blog about, but it's not every day that I'm blown away. Yet that's what exactly what happened when I first listened to Birmingham, Alabama band St. Paul and The Broken Bones. The three magic ingredients of front man Paul Janeway's powerhouse vocals, outstanding musicianship plus high caliber song material make up a sound so good it almost hurts.

The stellar 4-track EP 'Greetings from St. Paul and the Broken Bones' was released last year and their debut full-length 'Half The City' drops February 18.

Superb live performances are getting the band the buzz they deserve and there'll be plenty of opportunities for fans to bear witness in the coming months as they play across the U.S. The tour will include gigs at the SXSW Festival next month as well as at this year's Bonnaroo Festival in June. (see Songkick link below for concert date details.)

NOTE: Be sure to go to their Bandcamp page and listen to the track "Champagne Halloween" off of the debut EP:
