Unless you closely follow the Americana music circuit, the name Paul Thorn may sound more like an elegant fashion brand rather than one of the more distinctive singer-songwriters out today. But the Mississippi-raised Thorn – a former championship caliber professional boxer who once fought the great Roberto Duran – has one of the more unique styles today blending blues, folk, funk, gospel, country and rock that pack quite the punch. Think Lyle Lovett with a voice more along the lines of Marc Cohn. Thorn is the son of a preacher whose uncle was once a pimp, and he brings a tangible passion to everything he does – you feel it in our conversation. There’s an intensity behind every word, every thought, every feeling. And it makes for a compelling conversation with Paul Thorn. Enjoy.
