Alabama’s St. Paul & The Broken Bones have garnered an avid following through their captivating live performances and extensive discography. Founded in Birmingham in 2011, St. Paul & The Broken Bones is comprised of Paul Janeway (vocals), Jesse Phillips (bass), Browan Lollar (guitar), Kevin Leon (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone), and Amari Ansari (saxophone). They made their recording debut in 2014 with Half the City, an album that introduced an ideal recording as a counterpart to their frenetic shows—live to tape in as few takes as possible, mixed on the old board at Muscle Shoals’ Fame Studios. The group has continued to expand their sound with every record, branching out beyond their soulful roots into summertime funk, with hints of disco on albums such as 2018’s Young Sick Camellia. Around this time, with critical acclaim abounding, they caught the ear of Sir Elton John, and were asked to perform at his Oscar party. In 2022, the fine arts inspired The Alien Coast incorporated synths, psychedelia, samples and represents the most adventurous and original output yet from the southern octet.
