PAULA BOGGS BAND Saturday, April 25, 2015 Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm World Cafe Live Philadelphia - Upstairs $10.00 Starbucks refugee Paula Boggs and her band traverse jazz, world, rock and Americana. They released their debut CD “A Buddha State of Mind” in 2010 and will release "Carnival of Miracles, produced by Grammy-winning Trina Shoemaker in March 2015. Their sound is "soulgrass," it's always about "the message" as the band performs nationally. As one radio fan put it, "an enigmatic, original voice with great feeling, this artist's best work is ahead of her. I hope she can find a place in an empty soulless music industry of today. A female Leonard Cohen? I think so and I mean that as a compliment.”
Vocals, Rhythm Guitar

Manager: Eric Burns, 4 Entertainment
"Paula Boggs’ unique voice, sharp and witty writing, and knack for producing…jazzy-bluesy rock music is enlightening. …[and] an authentic voice makes her sound genuine, modern, and reflective."
- Mike DeGagne, Music Critic, AllMusic.

“STARBUCKS TO STAGE: Seattle Musician Paula Boggs "I first saw Paula Boggs perform at a local singer-songwriter hangout, the Soulfood Coffeehouse in Redmond, WA. She seemed totally comfortable on stage, despite the fact that she didn’t look or sound much like any of the other performers that night. It didn’t take more than a single Google search...to turn up the fact that she was the former Corporate Counsel for Starbucks, along with having served on the Iran-Contra task force during the Reagan administration. I was intrigued. I’m always interested in what draws someone with many talents and choices from the corporate world into music...Those of us who executed “Plan B” first, who had successful careers in other fields, might be tempted to find easier ways to fulfillment, like yoga or volunteering for the PTA. Paula is on her second album release, coming this March, called “Carnival of Miracles”, so I guess she’s in it to stay."”
