Artist Info

St. Paul & The Broken Bones

A fever dream in sonic form, St. Paul & The Broken Bones’ new albumThe Alien Coastrepresents themost adventurous and original output yet from an ever-evolving musical powerhouse. In a profound shift for the Alabama-bred eight-piece—Paul Janeway (vocals), Jesse Phillips (bass), Browan Lollar (guitar), Kevin Leon (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone), and Amari Ansari (saxophone)—the band’s fourth full-length and first for ATO Records strays far from the time-bending soul of past work like their 2014 debut, arriving at a convergence ofrock &roll, R&B, psychedelia and funk. At turns explosive, elegant, and unhinged, that sound makes fora majestic backdrop to St. Paul & The Broken Bones’ visceral exploration of the strangest dimensions ofthe human psyche.

Produced by Matt Ross-Spang,The Alien Coastis the first album St. Paul & The Broken Bones have everrecorded in their hometown of Birmingham. In creating the ultra-vivid dreamscape threaded throughout The Alien Coast, the band’s chief lyricist drew inspiration from such disparate sources as Greekmythology, dystopian sci-fi, 17th century Italian sculpture, and colonial-period history books.

Taylor Kelly

Born and raised in Rochester, NY, Taylor Kelly is now a fixture in the vibrant Philadelphia music scene further honing her introspective take on jazz, soul, and funk. She combines her smooth, powerful, technically-informed voice with a full horn section, addictive hip hop and electronic beats, and complex arrangements she writes herself with help from long-time collaborator and trombonist Mike Rilli. Both a vocalist and trumpet player, her sound is a dynamic blend of several established genres: she melds the improvisational looseness of jazz, the rhythmic earworms of funk, and the moving resonance of soul to carve out a niche all her own. Kelly names Stevie Wonder, Chet Baker, Roy Hargrove, Art Farmer, and Erykah Badu as influences, integrating strong melodic contour and intricate harmonies into lyrically personal and sonically anthemic tracks.
 
Kelly is a Berklee College of Music graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Music. Along with her band, she has released four albums and performed hundreds of live shows, sharing the stage with Moonchild, Becca Stevens, Monophonics, Neal Francis, Bahamadia, and Georgia Anne Muldrow. She has amassed over half a million listens for her song “California” on Spotify, and is committed to continuing this exploration of music’s ability to incite passion and self-actualization with her upcoming EP,  All I Need, set to release in 2022. The first single, "Maybe", released September 24th 2021.
