St. Paul And The Broken Bones – NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

St. Paul And The Broken Bones stops by NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert and performs this amazing mini concert.  It’s bands like these that makes me love NPR. It’s because they find outstanding artists like St Paul and The Broken Bones and many other unique bands and musicians.  These guys are worth listening to – Enjoy!

Close your eyes and listen, and you might imagine someone who looks a bit like Otis Redding. Open them, and you’re likely to see someone who looks more like your neighborhood bank teller. That man standing on my desk in the golden shoes is Paul Janeway. He was, in fact, a bank teller in Alabama not long ago — and this stupendous seven-piece band from Birmingham has only been doing this since 2012. But take a look at this Tiny Desk Concert and you’ll see why, St. Paul And The Broken Bones’ music is so winning. It’s got heart and soul and flair, with a well-worn sound buoyed by strong, fresh songwriting. — BOB BOILEN (NPR)
