“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
“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
“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.”
We’re thrilled our songs are now featured in three movies — “We All Fall Down” in upcoming indie film “Life on the Rocks,” Edith’s Coming Home” in newly released documentary “In Our Right Mind” highlighting Alzheimer’s and dementia within the African American community and “Benediction” appearing in soon to be screened documentary “Keepers of the Dream” — about Seattle chapter women Black Panthers.
