Sophomore Album On Vinyl LP With Gold Foil Embossing Album Cover!

Sea of Noise is the follow-up to the ground-breaking debut from St. Paul & The Broken Bones soul band fronted by lead singer Paul Janeway.

Grit, elemental rhythm, tight-as-a-drumhead playing, and a profound depth of feeling: these are the promises of a great soul band. And St. Paul & The Broken Bones deliver on those promises.

Front man Paul Janeway’s handle "St. Paul" is a wry allusion to the vocalist’s grounding in the church. Like many a legendary soul singer, Janeway, a native of the small town of Chelsea, Alabama, was raised on the gospel side, in a non-denominational, Pentecostal-leaning local church. Virtually no non-religious music could be heard in his devout household. Janeway says, "The only secular music that I heard at all was a ‘70s group called the Stylistics, and Sam Cooke. That was about it. The rest of it was all gospel music. When I was about 10 years old, I was groomed to be a minister. My goal in life until I was about 18 years old was to be a preacher."

He adds, "My pastor was the reason that I learned to play guitar. They would let me play guitar and sing in church..."

Though his time in the church exposed Janeway to key influences in gospel music – the Mighty Clouds of Joy, Alex Bradford, Clay Evans – he began moving away from his youthful path in his late teens. He began attending open mic nights in Birmingham’s clubs and diversified his listening, excited by some decidedly left-of-center talents. "Tom Waits and Nick Cave were the really big attractions," he says. "They have that passion. They’ve built this aura. They’re showmen to the teeth. And that’s what got me – it’s like going to church, in a weird way. At about the same time, I began listening to the great soul singers like Otis Redding, James Carr, and O.V. Wright. I was trying to find something that made my earbuds tingle."

"...a compelling and challenging commentary, tied together by Janeway's striking vocals." - Entertainment Weekly

"...a class Souther soul band, complete with a fiery lead singer." - NPR Morning Edition
