Last Bluesfest word on the street was that these were the act to catch – St Paul and the Broken Bones.
Headed up by Paul Janeway, the band is an 8-piece based out of Alabama with one goal
– to blow their audience off the stage.
What is the one song that reminds you of growing up, and why?
It is Well with My Soul always brings back good memories. It is a really good hymn.
What is the song/s that get you on the dancefloor every time?
Well I don’t go dancing really but Outkast’s So Fresh, So Clean will definitely get me moving no matter what.
What is the song that’s always busted out when no-one is around; why?
Probably Kendrick Lamar’s Backseat Freestyle. I don’t want to bust that out when kids are around but I love the song.
What is the song/s on high rotation in your car at the moment?
I am an albums guy so the album I have been playing constantly is Angel Olsen’s My Woman.
What was your wedding song?
My wife and I did our first dance to Sam Cooke’s Nothing Can Change This Love.
Your favourite song to cover at the moment?
My favourite cover that we are doing right now is Radiohead’s National Anthem. It is fun to throw that at our audience.
If you could sing a duet with anyone dead or alive who would it be and what would be the song?
Kermit the Frog and the song would have to be Rainbow Connection.
Your all-time blues hero is… ? Why?
For straight blues music it would be Howlin’ Wolf.
I love the grit he sang with.
