- It has been said that a Paul Thorn concert is like "taking a 6-pack to church," as evidenced by his song "Mission Temple Fireworks Stand." The first thing you notice is the voice, distinctively soulful and funky, the voice of a man who has walked a long, hot span over dusty Mississippi country roads. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured a young Elvis generations before, Thorn has jumped out of airplanes, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Durán on national television, opened for Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, and John Prine among many other headliners, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time. He made his album debut in 2007 with Hammer & Nail and released the hit album Long Way From Tupelo in 2008. His latest album Pimps & Preachers debuted on the Billboard Top 200, the Billboard Rock Chart, and the Billboard Independent Albums chart, and was #1 at Americana Radio. Bonnie Raitt calls Thorn "one of my favorite artists!".
