Can a 3-year-old change the direction of a band?
This week the return of the force known as Paul Janeway – leader of St Paul and the Broken Bones. (checking in from Birmingham Alabama.)
We’re going to be talking about their latest album Angels in Science Fiction
Paul tells us it’s a turning point for the band after 10 years together.
Even though the core members are mostly unchanged, this is not the soul band that swept over all of music in 2012 with the EP Greetings from St Paul and the Broken Bones.
Now 5 albums later they’re taking their fans in another more introspective direction., The funk and groove can still be found but now Paul is writing and singing about being a father and his conversation with his wife about
“do what kind of world are we bringing our daughter into?” They had a daughter.
Songs with lyrics like
“Dust to Dust”
“Try your best to make a difference. Starting with the people around you”
Songs about denial, fear, and acceptance.
There’s a renewed sense of spirituality throughout the album.
One question I wanted to include was
“How will these songs mesh live with the horn/soul band songs that you were playing over the past 10 years”.
Lots of stories and discussions.
Two things – they play the Saskatoon Jazz Festival July 8
And the Calgary Stampede July 9
