Paula Boggs Band
Army Airborne vet Boggs and the 6-piece Paula Boggs Band traverse jazz, bluegrass, blues, rock and Americana. They released debut album "A Buddha State of Mind" in 2010 and "Carnival of Miracles," produced by Grammy-winning Trina Shoemaker in 2015. Their sound is "Seattle-Brewed Soulgrass," the band performs nationally, has appeared on TV, performs on radio live in-studio and is the subject of several radio interviews, podcasts, blogs and articles. The band released a live EP of consciousness songs in January 2017 and album "Elixir, The Soulgrass Sessions, also produced by Shoemaker, on 9/15/17. Single "Benediction" from that album was released on the second anniversary of the Charleston, SC church murders in a live performance with Mother Emanuel AME Choir at Charleston Music Hall. Boggs was one of 5 Seattle area songwriters invited to participate in 2017's The Acoustic Guitar Project. One Guitar. One Week. One Song and wrote "Mistletoe and Shiny Guitars."
"Here is a group, lead by a consummate pro, that dared take Music to a wholly alternative place; and doing it with the traditional acoustic instruments of an era gone by...the perfect example of freedom of expression in Music. No labels, no niches, no fitting into standard spaces. Therein lies the creative genius of The Paula Boggs Band. Outstanding work!
