After doing a little research on #BlackoutTuesday’s origins, the statement from #TheShowMustBePaused’s organizers resonated with local Americana artist Paula Boggs. The...leader of her namesake Paula Boggs Band says she isn’t so Pollyannish as to believe all of the black-box posters are sincere [but] “We are living in one of the most divisive periods in our country’s history,” Boggs said. “So a movement that unifies us — even if it’s in some ways superficial — is better than not doing it, it seems to me.”” - Michael Rietmulder, Music Writer

The Seattle Times

Not to be confused with just another group with “band” in their name, Paula Boggs band sets themselves apart distinctly by Boggs’ stunning vocals. Glide is proud to premiere”Traces Of You” (below) a bluesy stomper where Boggs’ gritty and emotive vocals provide an extraordinary lead instrument. 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.”

Boggs, who lives outside of Seattle, is the leader of a successful eponymous touring band; singing her own song for large crowds; and garnering, you guessed it, praise for her ‘Seattle Brewed Soulgrass’—“a stew of soul, folk, bluegrass, world and jazz"...flying high.” - Michael Eck

Public Radio KBCS-FM asked Paula to pick one album  for “shelter at home.” “My album quarantine jam is Bruce Springsteen’s 1980 20-song The River for it’s length, songwriting prowess, soulfulness and mood diversity. I have a strong emotional connection to the album. After college in Baltimore (and Bruce was a god in Baltimore) I drove cross-country to Berkeley, California by myself site yet seen.
The album comforted as I left the familiar towards unknown heading west on Interstate 70. Spinning in my 1979 Toyota Corolla cassette player though, title song “The River” (Track 11) triggered an inconsolably bawling response. “Now those memories come back to haunt me. They haunt me like a curse. Is a dream a lie if it don’t come true or is it something worse?”

This veteran Americana act boasts a range of influences from classic — James McMurtry and Bruce Springsteen — to more contemporary — the Drive-By Truckers. The group describes itself as “soulgrass.” An unfamiliar tag, sure, but not to be dismissed lightly in this age of microgenres.”
