Soulful R&B group, St. Paul and the Broken Bones are bringing their audacious sound to the Taft Theater on February 21st. Frontman Paul Janeway and his fellow seven bandmates will be performing ahead of their third studio album Young Sick Camellia which was released on September 7th, 2018.
When St. Paul and the Broken Bones broke out just a few years back, Paul Janeway’s powerhouse voice brought immense volume that dialed us back to the soulful era of the seventies. Paul Janeway has always been transparent about his strong political beliefs, and in the group’s 2016 release Sea of Noise, he heavily touched base on his core political values. Young Sick Camellia is no different, however the album takes audience on a journey through the singer’s past and we see where his passion for liberalism stems from, and the objections from his southern counterparts he faced along the way.
The Camellia is the Alabama state flower, serves as a key motif for the band’s unveiling of a more experimental, psychedelic soulful R&B sound. Young Sick Camellia has proven to be far more unpredictable from their previous releases. Paul Janeway describes himself as a “broken southerner,” who struggled to find a common safe space among the conservative community that was surrounding him. St. Paul and the Broken Bones are sure to bring their alluring stage presence, instrumental sharpness, and exceptional vocals to Cincinnati, and you do not want to miss out on this show!
