Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern American, yet also speaking universal truths.

Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity and character – as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts of genius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time.

He’s also appeared on major television shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live, been the subject of numerous National Public Radio (NPR) features and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radio Charts.

In 2018, Paul released an album titled "Don’t Let the Devil Ride", which he describes as “the culmination of my whole life in music, coming back to my roots.” It marks his first time recording gospel music - featuring guests such as the Blind Boys of Alabama, the McCrary Sisters, and Preservation Hall Horns - and his creation of a body of strikingly original songs that address the foibles of human relationships without necessarily favoring the sacred over the profane.

When singer/songwriter Andrew Sturtz isn’t playing folk, jazz and soul in local Boulder venues, he’s out on the festival circuit, bringing his potent voice to stages like the Riverlights Festival in South Bend, IN; The Traverse City Microbrew & Music Festival in Traverse City, MI; and ARISE Festival in Loveland, CO.

Since his first gigs at only 12 years old and recording an EP as a teenager, Andrew has captured audiences with his ability to shift seamlessly between soulful acoustic music and fronting bands from multiple genres. He often plays throughout Boulder, Colorado, at venues like eTown and the Laughing Goat and has also played notable venues in Denver like The Walnut Room and Swallow Hill where he opened for the Grammy nominated group, The Secret Sisters. His precise guitar grooves and seemingly limitless voice inspire comparisons to scene favorites such as Martin Sexton and Amos Lee, among others.

In addition to appearances and collaborations around the Boulder area, Andrew has an album in the works, due Spring 2020.
