White Claw Concerts: St. Paul & The Broken Bones
Celebrate live music on the river! White Claw Concerts are here, and there's something for everybody.
Paul Janeway, singer of the Birmingham, Alabama–based rock and roll soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones was born and raised in America’s Deep South and has always used his music as an outlet from which to share what was in his heart and on his mind. With a powerful voice, a magnetism for connecting with people, and a gift for music, he traded in a career in ministry to start St. Paul & The Broken Bones in 2012.
In addition to Janeway on lead vocals and co-band leader Jesse Phillips on bass and guitar, the lineup is rounded out by Browan Lollar (guitars), Andrew Lee (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone) and Amari Ansari (saxophone).
With the release of their 2014 debut album Half the City and its follow up, 2016’s Sea of Noise, the retro-soul band quickly found themselves on the national scene touring the world relentlessly. Janeway’s fearless showmanship, thoughtful lyrics, and dedication to his performance soon became the band’s calling card. Paired with the inventive and skillful direction of Phillips, their success ranged from opening for The Rolling Stones and headlining two nights at the Ryman Auditorium and performing at Austin City Limits to TV appearances including The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, two appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, one being the very first episode.
The band’s latest project, Young Sick Camellia created a space for St. Paul & The Broken Bones to rival any forward-thinking band making music today, based on a concept all-too familiar to Janeway: family, and how we love them despite our differences.
