Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern American, yet also speaking universal truths. Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity and character – as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts of genius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, raised among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time. He’s also appeared on major television shows, received numerous National Public Radio features and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radio Charts.
Singer songwriter Matt MacKelcan has emerged from the southeast with a genuine combination of American soul and an upbeat pop-rock style. Matt’s trademarks are a big voice, authentic songwriting, personable nature and an extra dose of funny. He has toured all over America and performed at major festivals/events throughout the country.
Matt recently released single “Worth the Wait” was featured on 105.5 The Bridge “Critic’s Choice” and has been very well received on Spotify. LP From Where I Stand produced by Aaron Tap (Matt Nathanson) has garnered critical acclaim and was added to rotation (AAA and College) with singles “Drive “ “Plans” and “Here’s to the Night”. It debuted in the top 40 Singer/Songwriter iTunes Charts. Audiences are growing in all markets and the word of mouth on the album and the entertaining live show have Matt poised for a breakout. He will be recording new material in August in Nashville and single/EP release date in October.
Matt has toured and performed with artists such as Matt Nathanson, Martin Sexton, Corey Smith, Andrew McMahon, Blues Traveler to name a few and Eric Hutchinson on his “Anyone Who Knows Me” tour.
Matt lives in Charleston, SC and proudly supports Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, National Brian Tumor Society and Pet Helpers .
“Matt Mackelcan puts his heart into his writing and his stage show to the point that when listeners or audience members are exposed to it they connect and become instant fans” – Mike Allen – Program Director WCOO-FM 105.5 The Bridge
