Every now and then I’m introduced to an artist who’s music and style are so unique as to make a lasting impression. What a pleasant surprise to hear a truly different sound in the work of The Paula Boggs Band!...No labels, no niches, no fitting into standard spaces. Therein lies the creative genius of The Paula Boggs Band. Outstanding work!”
