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.

Couch

Equipped with catchy hooks and powerhouse vocals, Couch aims to reshape familiar pop tropes in fresh ways. The Boston-based septet infuses pop songs with funk, R&B, jazz, and rock influences. Their vibrant sound is further defined by the members’ personal training in jazz, a cappella, and musical theatre.

Until Spring 2021, Couch members were scattered across the country at various universities; they tackled the challenges of being a “long-distance” band, writing and even recording virtually for three years. Despite these challenges, they celebrated the release of their debut EP, “COUCH,” in February 2021 as well as three new singles in Fall 2022. The band injects each track with their signature flavor: expressive horns, warm vocals, and bubbling synths—crafting an oasis of joy for musicians and non-musicians alike.
