Biography

Paul Thorn has been pleasing crowds for years with his muscular brand of roots music - bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern, yet also speaking universal truths. The Tupelo, Mississippi native took an unexpected detour on the road to recording his latest album. After writing many discs of semi-autobiographical tunes, the critically acclaimed singer/songwriter - hailed as the "Mark Twain ... Read more in Amazon's Paul Thorn Store

One whose beautiful and simple phrasing along with equally simply but poignently-perfect melodies create such an incredible musical combination.

Heard Paul Thorn on the radio, checked a couple MP3s, then bought "Ain't Love Strange." (Are you listening, you who are sueing Napster?) He's the best thing since Lyle Lovett! Very dark, southern, bluesy lyrics, underlayed with real musicality. I thought "Mood Ring" said everything that needs to be said about male-female relationships. And what can you say about "Burn Down the Trailer Park?" The title says it all, and the song does not disappoint.
I found every cut entertaining, either for the lyrics or the licks. We could use more southern poets like Paul Thorn.

I think Paul Thorn is a hugely talented guy, and of all his albums, this is my favorite. Paul is known for oddball, quirky songs that are straightforward yet twisted. This CD, more than his others, shows his inner personality as a bit of a refined rebel, not afraid to gently mock situations that most songwriters would steer well clear of.

Of all the songs on the CD, my easy favorite (in fact my favorite Thorn song of all time) is "Burn Down the Trailer Park" a hilarious yet powerful tale of infidelity with the landlord involving not only home repairs but light refreshments. His ability to set the audience up for one rhyme scheme, then deliver another much funnier punch line ("grass" does not rhyme with "pie") all in the midst of an electrifying performance is delightful, and is not fully appreciated until you have seen him in concert. I most recently saw him open for Mark Knopfler, and the crowd roared with laughter throughout this song. Not only is he a great musician, he is a great showman, and I strongly recommend seeing him in concert if you have the opportunity.

This CD is full of pop, rock, country, blues, and comedy, and should not be missed. It genuinely is one of the rare CDs that I play with great regularity. Buy this one today, you will not be disappointed!

I have been listening to, "Aint Love Strange," for about 3 months along with, "Mission Temple Fireworks Stand." This is a true talent that has largely been undiscovered. One whose beautiful and simple phrasing along with equally simply but poignently-perfect melodies create such an incredible musical combination. Whether happy, sad, amused or beguiled, the listener is going to come away from this album emotionally involved and wanting to hear more.
Among the most accessable and evocative songs on the album, "Where Was I," and "I have a good day," are must listens for anyone. And, the sense of humor on "Burn down the trailer park," and "Ain't Love Strange," are just terrific.
In all, this is one great album from one great artist. If you haven't heard of him, take my advice and take a listen.

Paul Thorn is a giant talent. He writes and performs with a clarity the is rare in this day and age. His work touches all the emotions in both a down to earth and poetic way. This is that rare album that you will play again and again. Buy this album!!

Perhaps the engineering isn't the quality of most big studios; maybe the instruments aren't quite as clean as on other CD's; and I will agree that a couple of songs are made up of simple lyrics, but you will have a hard time convincing me that a more entertaining performer, singer, songwriter exists.
"Where Was I" is a wonderful song that will be recorded again someday by a mainstream artist who will take it to the top. "Fabio and Liberachi" is quite possibly the funniest song I have heard since "Alice's Restaurant."
This is a great album with very few weak points in the entertainment sector. And afterall, isn't that why we listen to music in the first place?

Paul Thorn is brilliant. The Billy Bob Thornton of songwriters. Disarmingly honest lyric in the vernacular of the new southern poet. Turn It Up! 'cause it rocks...

Saw Paul Thorn at the Austin City Limits Music Festival and knew that I had to buy this man's albums. Bought three, but this is the most awesome album of all. Think he needs more angst in his life now to continue to create this same caliber of music. He is alternately angry in love, then sorrowful with love. The best tracks on the album are "Ain't love strange", "Burn down the trailer park"-a scary song but hilarious, "Fabio & Liberace",a tale of unusual attraction......I love this car, and "Where was I"...when you stopped loving me. Both rocking, bluesy, this man can sing if nothing else. Buy and you will not regret. I took this to work where the people I work with never heard nor had interest in this type of music and all wanted to know where to buy a copy.

I had the good fortune to see Paul Thorn in the UK as a support artist to Peter Green a couple of years ago. I was very impressed, and subsequently purchased "Hammer and Nail". This follow up album is slightly dissappointing, but never-the-less exemplifies the true talent of a great artist. . The mixture of emotions in his songs is quite unique and makes a refreshing change from more well known artists. His songs quite often drive you to tears or make you laugh! I hope that Paul Thorn will go on to do great things. As far as I'm aware this CD is not available in the UK-Why ?
