1st annual Tulsa Roots Rocks the Green
Paul Thorn Band
Sunday, October 14, 2012 | 12:00 am
Muscular, joyous roots music that is bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern. The Tupelo, Mississippi native worked in a furniture factory, jumped out of airplanes, and was a boxer before embracing music full time, topping the Americana charts and breaking the Billboard Top 100. Thorn’s father is a Church of God Pentecostal Minister and his uncle was a pimp. Thorn was influenced by both men, and his music is rife with vigorous, witty “saint and sinner” scenarios, mining the juxtapositions that exist in us all.
