Founded in Birmingham, Alabama in 2011, St. Paul & the Broken Bones consists 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). The eight-piece ensemble burst into the world with their 2014 debut Half the City, establishing a sound that quickly became a calling card and landing the band a slew of major festivals including Lollapalooza, Coachella and Glastonbury. Critical praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, SPIN and NPR followed, leading to shared stages with some of the world’s biggest artists—Elton John and The Rolling Stones among them—and launching an impressive run of headlining tours behind what Esquire touted as a “potent live show that knocks audiences on their ass.”
The group has continued to expand their sound with every record, branching out well beyond old-school soul into sleek summertime funk and classic disco on albums like 2018’s Young Sick Camellia. Their forthcoming LP, Angels In Science Fiction, stretches their limbs further afield, building on the shadowy psychedelia and intricate, experimental R&B of 2022’s The Alien Coast.
Established in 2017 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and currently headquartered in Nashville, Sugadaisy has been making waves in the music scene, captivating audiences with their dynamic performances and electrifying sound. Successfully navigating the highly competitive music industry, the band has secured a distinct position through their unique blend of rock and pop influences.
The hallmark of Sugadaisy’s music lies in powerful vocals, fierce guitar riffs, and infectious melodies that linger in the mind long after the music has faded. Setting themselves apart from their peers, Sugadaisy seamlessly amalgamates various genres, creating a sound that is unmistakably theirs – a blend of familiarity and innovation.
Sugadaisy’s unwavering commitment to their art and genuine passion for music resonate in every note they produce. Their compelling live shows and captivating compositions have cultivated a devoted fan base, and their music continues to resonate with listeners globally.
