Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career. He pleases crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern American – yet also speaks universal truths. Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity and character, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar.
Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes. He worked for years in a furniture factory and battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television. He has signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, Huey Lewis and John Prine, among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time. He’s also appeared on major television shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live, been the subject of numerous National Public Radio (NPR) features and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radio Charts.
