St. Paul & The Broken Bones
Blood is thicker than water, and it can leave scars. But like it or not, those in our bloodlines are stuck with us—and us with them—for better or for worse. Paul Janeway understands this conundrum of heritage well. The singer of the Birmingham, Alabama–based rock and roll soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones was born and raised in America's Deep South, a place where social consciousness can still take a backseat to unsavory traditions and where a family's expectations sometimes supersede all else. Despite the fierce familial love, he enjoyed and constantly gave back while growing up—especially to his father and grandfather—from an early age Janeway realized that the way he thought about the world was a little different from those around him, and he began to seek an outlet from which to share what was in his heart and on his mind. Blessed with a powerful voice, a magnetism for connecting with people, and a gift for making music, he traded in a career in ministry to start his own band. "I've always been the artsy weirdo in the family," Janeway says. "I'm liberal, a blue dot in a very red part of the world. When you're from Alabama you have to go out of your way to make people understand that you think a little differently. But we're an Alabama band—it's who we are." The full-length debut from Los Angeles-based band Valley Queen, Supergiant takes its title from the most massive and luminous yet fastest-burning stars in the universe. "The song 'Supergiant' is about how we're all made up of the same stuff as stars, and I liked the idea of tying the whole album together with that metaphor," says Carol. "It takes all the drama you hear on the record—the aggressive, chaotic moments, and the more beautiful or quieter moments—and puts it all into a more galactic perspective." With the album finished and ready to be released into the world, it's now easier for Carol to take a step back and be philosophical but there were moments when it almost seemed like Supergiant would never come to light.
