Paul Thorn

October 12 @ 7:30 pm

From Boxer to Musician

Before establishing himself as a purveyor of muscular American roots music, Tupelo, Mississippi’s Paul Thorn lived several other lives.

The son of a Pentecostal preacher, he was a champion prizefighter in the 1980s who fought Roberto Duran, a professional skydiver, and a factory worker. Since releasing 1997’s Hammer & Nail for A&M, Thorn has balanced blues, rock, gospel, country, and soul in a singular strain of Americana with songs that embrace the human condition with their humor, irony, pathos, tenderness, heartbreak, grief, anger, and joy.

Thorn possesses a singing voice that is equal parts gravel and honey. His two previous Brauntex Theatre performances have been so well received; we are bringing him back.
