Paula Boggs Band blends jazz and Americana. Front woman guitarist/songwriter Paula Boggs, percussionist Tor Dietrichson and banjo player/guitarist Mark Chinen are founding members. Their sound is "Seattle-Brewed Soulgrass" and pre-Covid the band toured several years across America and Canada.
The band has released a steady stream of music over the past decade-plus. Debut album "A Buddha State of Mind" came in 2010 and "Carnival of Miracles," followed in 2015. Four years ago Paula Boggs Band released EP "Live at Empty Sea, Songs of Protest & Hope” and 3rd album Elixir, The Soulgrass Sessions.
After Elixir, the band added multi-instrumentalists Paul Moore and Darren Lucas, bassist Alex Dyring and drummer Jacob Evans. Moore, Dyring and Evans are music conservatory trained. Dyring and Evans are second generation professional musicians. “Mistletoe & Shiny Guitars,” the band’s 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, also produced/engineered by Martine and featuring Dom Flemons, releases April 1, 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.”
“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!”
— Matthew Gillian, Retired Radio Broadcaster/Personality, Former Host of Opry Star Spotlight, 650AM WSM, Nashville, TN
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
