St. Paul & the Broken Bones

St. Paul & the Broken Bones have no connection to the Twin Cities, although they did recruit Lizzo to sing with them at South by Southwest. They’re a gospel-infused soul-rock band from Birmingham, Ala., with a church-weaned singer, Paul Janeway, who looks like a bespectacled kid from a Far Side cartoon but has a no-joke Otis Redding thing going on. His voice is powerful and dramatic enough to shine over what’s also a stellar, horn-driven band. Their debut album, “Half the City,” has been an NPR radio favorite and earned them festival slots at Bonnaroo and in England. Could be an I-saw-them-when kind of show. Chris Riemenschneider
