“this is one of the most stupendous live acts around.” – The Guardian
“they call their new album ‘Half the City’, but the whole country needs a shot of vocalist Paul Janeway’s old-school soul group.” – USA Today

Electrifying soul septet St. Paul & The Broken Bones has announced dates for their early 2015 European tour, in March (see dates below). St. Paul & The Broken Bones have been touring almost nonstop throughout the U.S. and Europe, with a myriad of sold out shows, national television performances and major music festival debuts in support of their debut album Half The City. Released in May in Europe, Half The City continues to gain new fans at each and every show with their sweat-soaked, gutbucket, horn-infused brand of Muscle Shoals/Stax-influenced R&B. NPR Music said of their live shows, “The mighty Paul Janeway embodies Clark Kent’s transformation into Superman every time he opens his mouth, and his band of Alabama kids turned sweet soul masters makes sure he can fly.”
2014 has been an incredible year thus far for the Birmingham Alabama-based ensemble. They made their US network TV debut on CBS Saturday Morning, followed by appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,Jimmy Kimmel Live and an upcoming performance on The Steve Harvey Show later this year. In Europe they have appeared live on Jo Whiley and Dermot O’Leary on Radio 2 and  had a playlist for their debut single “Call Me”; WDR News filmed them live in Cologne, VPRO 3voor12  filmed the band live at the Into The Great Wide Open Festival in Holland  and in France the band filmed a captivating two-song ‘Take Away Show’ performance outdoors for the acclaimed La Blogotheque, sans amps and PA, guerrilla style at the Louvre on the same day they were live on France Inter.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones gave a show-stopping performance during the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards show in September, where they were nominated for 2014 Emerging Artist Of The Year. “St. Paul & Broken Bones are shaping up as one of 2014’s most impressive DIY stories,” said The Hollywood Reporter and the astonishing review from the END of the Road FESTIVAL in September by the Guardian,“this is one of the most stupendous live acts around.”  put a voice to the reaction globally wherever the band has ventured since their launch earlier  this year.

The Band are coming back to tour Europe in March 2015.  Get those White Dancing Shoes Ready..

Bex Marshall releases House of Mercy in the US and announces Tour…

Bex Marshall – Releases New Album ‘HOUSE OF MERCY’ 12th February 2013 in USA and announces her first tour in 2013.

‘… She does down n dirty blues, evokes Janis Joplin, goes acoustic for the tender, and contributes tasty slide and knopfleresque runs. Marshall’s powerhouse persona dominates,winningly…Uncut Magazine UK

Bex Marshall’s unique style of guitar playing is a combined technique of slide, blues rock, ragtime and roots pickin’. Her voice is a powerful melting pot of old black woman’s heartache and rock diva soul. Bex is a writer of distinction and notability, she pushes the boundaries of blues, her songs have been called timeless, touches of genius, and now with her 7 piece band, she is literally a musical tornado. On Bex’s new album ‘House of Mercy’ you will find swamp blues, splashes of gospel and colorful bluegrass; all with an exciting, lyrically British twist.   ‘ ….you can see why Bex Marshall a talent to watch…Classic Rock Magazine UK

A Devonshire lass now residing in London, Bex is the product of two very different families, one blue blooded landed gentry, the other Irish Romany. At 11 years old she was given a 1963 Gibson Hummingbird by her Uncle David and immediately started playing. She got hooked on instrumentals and classical guitar standards which stretched her fingers and gave her a great knowledge base from which  her own music was  to develop. This included flamenco, ragtime, country chicken pickin’, rock and on to blues and roots where she is now in her element.

She always had a passion for travelling, its in her blood and from  training to be a croupier at 18, she began her travels around the world working gaming tables on cruise liners, in Park Lane and  even dealing illegal poker games in Amsterdam. She hitch hiked the coast of Australia on cattle trains and was always to be seen with a guitar on her back,  living and storing tales.

The House of Mercy CD will be released in the USA 12th  February 2013  via Allegro distribution
