Paul Thorn :: Too Blessed To Be Stressed

by

PaulThornTooBlessedToBeStressed-coverPaul Thorn komt net als Elvis uit Tupelo, Mississippi, zijn vader was predikant, hij zelf was ooit een getalenteerde bokser. Zijn Americana combineert al die invloeden. Rock ‘n’ roll, gospel, blues, swamp. Na de geweldige covers-CD What The Hell Is Goin’ On? is Too Blessed To Be Stressed weer gevuld met eigen nummers. En die zijn allemaal top. Opener Everything’s Gonna Be Alright is typisch Thorn: zuidelijke swing, moerassen, of Tony Joe White en John Fogerty samen een band zijn begonnen. Fenomenaal.

Paul Thorn’s new album Too Blessed To Be Stressed stakes out new territory for the popular roots-rock songwriter and performer. “In the past, I’ve told stories that were mostly inspired by my own life,” the former prizefighter and literal son of a preacher man offers. “This time, I’ve written 10 songs that express more universal truths, and I’ve done it with a purpose: to make people feel good.”
