Paula Boggs Band blends jazz, rock and Americana. Debut album “A Buddha State of Mind” dropped a decade ago and “Carnival of Miracles,” in 2015. Their sound is “Seattle-Brewed Soulgrass”and the band tours across America and Canada.
Four years ago Paula Boggs Band released EP “Live at Empty Sea, Songs of Protest & Hope” and 3rd album Elixir, The Soulgrass Sessions. “Mistletoe & Shiny Guitars,” their first holiday song came in 2018. EP “Electrokitty Sessions” and single “America 2020,” produced by multi-Grammy nominated Tucker Martine followed in 2020. Paula Boggs Band is sponsored by Deering Banjos, Breedlove Guitars and Radial Engineering. Their 4th studio album “Janus”, also produced/engineered by Martine, releases in early 2022.
“Boggs is like the Dylan, the Peter, Paul, and Mary, the Joan Baez of this era.”
Phil King, AudioFuzz.com
“Paula Boggs Band sets themselves apart distinctly by Boggs’ stunning vocals…this Seattle band sounds the part of a bygone era and part refreshingly modern, an exciting contributor to the Pacific Northwest’s diverse music scene.” Glide Magazine
“Boggs makes…urban, jazzy music…within the structures of…folk, bluegrass, and…blues…[s]he calls… “soulgrass,” and reminds me a little of Gil Scott-Heron, if only for the razor-intensity of her words…in a croony-rich street voice…evocative and easy to like.” Dave Good, San Diego Reader
David Jacobs-Strain is a fierce slide guitar player, and a song poet from Oregon. He is known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon. David displays a range that ties him to his own generation and to guitar-slinger troubadours like Robert Johnson and Jackson Browne. “I try to make art that you can dance to, but I love that darker place, where in my mind, Skip James, Nick Drake, and maybe Elliot Smith blur together.” -DJS David lives in Eugene OR with his wife and baby son.
