Paula Boggs Band / Press

“Paula Boggs, the Paula Boggs Band’s frontwoman, [is] encouraging unity and action in her music. With the band’s new album Elixir: The Soulgrass Sessions, as on previous collections, Paula and the band hope to inspire listeners to embrace the community around them and get involved.”

“100 Bands in 100 Days — Day 62: Paula Boggs Band. A few months ago we reviewed the latest album from a Seattle band with a sound all their own, the Paula Boggs Band. They mix a little bit of everything for a delicious audio blend they like to call Seattle-Brewed-Soulgrass.”

“The Holocene...spans from 11,700 years ago to the present...everything that has happened since the Ice Age. The movements and creations of humanity included. It’s a big concept, and — like this cover of Bon Iver’s moving song — one that warrants rounds of thought and re-exploration. Paula Boggs Band reopens the song with a banjo and Paula Boggs’ folky, bluesy voice. Instead of Bon Iver’s ethereal blends, these musicians ground their version in the body. Boggs’ voice is raw and at the forefront, and in the clip, people stretch and bend amidst trees. In her imagining, the song is opened up and raw, whereas the original is deeper and to be sifted through. It’s a successful cover that shifts genre as though it’s effortless. The natural world is always present in... “Holocene”, but focus is on the slowed down movements of dancers and creation of the music. Again, Paula Boggs Band brings an openness to the art. Nothing is hidden, but everything is delicate and filled ”

“On the bands new album Elixir: The Soulgrass Sessions, the call to connection, action and human understanding is poignantly at work through each of the songs, and if ever there were a time when such music was necessary, it is now. "Every day is a canvas" and we must use our brush well, if the surface happens to be our world what would you want to see reflected back at you, truth, beauty, love, understanding? These are the themes threading through Boggs' vast musical book, the life chapters lead one to a present not just born of experience, but of a lot of hope too.”

“On “Benediction” and other tracks on Elixir: The Soulgrass Sessions, the Paula Boggs Band combines elements of rock, soul, gospel, blues, and even a smidgen of bluegrass (courtesy of Mark Chinen’s banjo work) into an American roots mélange. The group is assisted vocally on “Benediction” by Mycle Wastman and the Total Experience Gospel Choir... “Benediction” features the group at its most musically and emotionally powerful.”

“There is no "America' as we know it without the arts and humanities”

“Boggs Smashes Stereotypes: The Paula Boggs Band’s latest EP, “Songs of Protest and Hope,’ was an expression of a concept that Boggs and her band have been thinking a lot about in recent years — what it means to be a citizen-artist, making music that entertains, but also enlightens and inspires. The band’s next album “Elixir,” which will be released on September 15, continues the group’s exploration into making statements with its music.”

“Music can serve as either the subtle, supportive bass line or the guitar-guided melody in anyone’s life at varying times. For Paula Boggs, leading woman of the aptly named “Soulgrass” group the Paula Boggs band, the singer and songwriter shared with the New-Press how reconnecting with her musical roots gave her a purpose few other things could match.”

“It was a very special evening of music performed by the incredible Paula Boggs Band from Seattle, WA”

“A new, original song was premiered days ago, when the Paula Boggs Band took part in a commemoration of the victims of 2015’s church shooting in Charleston, S.C., and was joined by the Mother Emmanuel Gospel Choir. “‘Benediction’ was inspired by that massacre,” Boggs says. She describes the song as “an example of the music activism we find in our life today.” The song will appear on the band’s next record, Elixir: The Soulgrass Sessions, scheduled for release in September.”

“Paula Boggs, a musician and lawyer, shared the story of her personal journey and career. Her resume is amazingly impressive, including leader of the global law department of Starbucks, tech executive, law firm partner, federal prosecutor and U.S. Army captain, to now frontwoman for “Seattle-Brewed Soulgrass,” a chart-topping jazz, rock and Americana-inspired band. There is one common dominator piloting Paula’s life path: self-interest. Self-interest is usually experienced with negative conations such as egotism or selfishness. However, Paula reclaims it as a virtuous practice of investment in oneself. She gives herself permission to say what she needs and to pursue what she wants to be her best self and live her best life. It is what helped her realize it was not too late to pivot from a successful career in corporate America to starting a band!”

“Songs of Protest & Hope from the Paula Boggs Band is one current release that feels both fresh and dated at the same time because of the overall messages that are contained within it. But because of the political climate of the world today, it’s great to see someone from today creating the same type of messages that would have been welcome fifty years ago. With this release, Paula Boggs proves herself to be a strong singer-songwriter as well as an individual that cares about very strong issues that haunt today’s youth. Songs of Protest & Hope from the Paula Boggs Band makes good use of two sides of Paula Boggs’ personality as the singer-songwriter side and the activist side come through in this release.”

“Paula Boggs has gone back to yesterday … to “the passion and craft I knew as a child and young adult” … to the young woman singing in the church choir … to the soul of the young girl who first translated the world into song at age 10. Perhaps now, as writer George Moore declared, Paula Boggs is actually a woman who has travelled “the world over in search of what (s)he needs and returns home to find it.””

“Some people are just blessed with gorgeous voices. I'm a little jealous of Paula Boggs. Her latest video comes from her new EP, Live From Empty Sea: Songs of Protest and Hope. Boggs writes that this song is a form of protest and hope beyond the political arena. It is a memorial to "Edith," a black lawyer and judge who married interracially in the '40s which was, of course, illegal in many states. The song protests against the fact that this remarkable woman spent her last years in the throes of Alzheimer's.”

“Boggs' musical abilities match her legal acumen. Seems to me like we'll need a little of both over the next few years.”

“Boggs is like: the Dylan, the Peter, Paul, and Mary, the Joan Baez of this era.”

“The Paula Boggs Band, a Seattle-brewed Soulgrass group, is spreading consciousness and awareness on their new, 5-song EP, ‘Songs of Protest & Hope’, collected from a live performance at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle, WA. The band’s music was inspired by a public challenge issued by Roots’ drummer Questlove, who questioned the lack of protest songs in the wake of the shooting deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.”

“For nearly a decade, Boggs has hammered out Americana tunes with the Seattle-based Paula Boggs Band. The band’s latest EP, Live From Empty Sea: Songs of Protest and Hope, is set to release in just a few weeks. On the record, Boggs and the band tackle “Get Together”, made famous by psychedelic-rock band The Youngbloods back in the 60s. Boggs’ version is born out of her “soulgrass” tones, rich with her distinct vocals, obvious passion for the track’s subject of peace, and the hypnotic pulses of instrumental repetition courtesy of the talented multi-instrumentalists backing her.”

Elmore Magazine

“The Paula Boggs Band becomes an international act this week when it plays Vancouver for the first time...[soulgrass] best captures the elements of bluegrass, rock, folk, blues, jazz and even a little bit of gospel in some songs.”

“The band returned to the studio and recorded “Carnival of Miracles,” released in March 2015. It’s a blend of what Boggs calls “soul grass,” and the 10-track disc is filled with folk, Americana and even a little gypsy jamming. Since the release of that album, the band has had a lineup change, with Dyring replacing original bassist Jarrett Mason. Dyring has brought with him a new voice adding to their harmonies and the sound of an upright bass. Now Boggs says her music chapter is “open-ended.” She’s working on new music as well as fresh arrangements of their existing sound and a unique arrangement of Bon Iver’s “Holocene.” They have plans to head back into the studio this fall, and she says the next record will be less diverse in terms of genre. “We really have a sound now, and so this next record will very much reflect that. Our goal is that people can hear a song from that upcoming record and instantly go, ‘That’s Paula Boggs Band.’ ””

“Today, the band has two CDs, A Buddha State of Mind (2010) and Carnival of Miracles, released last year. Sandy Greenbaum, the band’s drummer and music director, says they plan to start work on a third this year. Over the band’s soulgrass instrumentation, Boggs fits lyrics that tell stories, celebrate life and address social issues. “Carnival of Miracles,” the title track of their 2015 album, was written partly in reaction to the 2012 Newtown, Connecticut, tragedy. To remix “Look Straight Ahead,” about police perceptions of young black men, she recruited rising Seattle rapper J. Pinder.”

“Former Starbucks Executive to Lead Singer, Paula Boggs Followed Her Dream.”

“Seattle’s Paula Boggs of the Paula Boggs Band always knew her heart was in music, but there were other life lessons to learn first...It took over 30 years and a family tragedy to set the wheels in motion for Paula to return to music and create her own sound, which she describes as “Seattle Brewed Soulgrass.” Her songs, filled with the essence of soul, bluegrass and Americana, offer lyrics that relate to both her life and society. Even as her music lights her passion, Paula still is connected to public service and the corporate boardroom, through speaking engagements and as an advocate for disenfranchised youth by teaming up with My Brother’s Keeper Alliance and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.”

“Paula Boggs is a singer-songwriter based in Seattle, Washington. Her band, the Paula Boggs Band, has recorded two CDs and is about to go into the studio to record their third. Paula’s story is a complex one. Her path to being a full time musician took some of the most unlikely turns one can imagine: before her musical interests took over, Paula was the General Counsel and Secretary at Starbucks, reporting directly to the CEO. Paula left that life behind to pursue music full time. Paula’s story has been profiled in The Huffington Post and by the American Bar Association.”

“After a little encouragement from her teacher, she knew she had to pursue her true passion in life and took early retirement from [a] successful career. That is when her life began with the Paula Boggs Band !”

“The Paula Boggs Band will perform May 21 at The Roxy Bar and concert venue...Boggs has released two albums, including "Carnival of Miracles" last year. Before pursuing music full-time, she served in the Army, was an assistant U.S. attorney, worked as a Vice President at Dell Corporation and general counsel at Starbucks.”

“Righteous Mothers w/Paula Boggs Band (Seattle's Triple Door MainStage): Funny ladies who love serving up folk-rock interpretations of everyday joys and issues come together in The Righteous Mothers, with bill support from the fiercely powerful and crooner-smooth Paula Boggs Band.”

“Next up is a track [Miss Ruby Kirby Blues] by the Paula Boggs Band, Paula referes to their stuff as “soulgrass”, which is just a really cool word and reminds me of a band I used to be in - the guitar player insisted on calling our stuff “cow punk”, but I digress. So what it is that Paula does? She sings WELL in front of a band that just oozes cool and makes one very impressive amount of noise. Simply put if you want to hear the electric blues done right, you have to check out this band. Man, I hope these guys come to Sweden!”

““Just a couple days ago, Paula and her band performed to [a] packed house at LA’s Genghis Cohen. Learn more about this incredibly impressive woman in the following All Access interview.””

““Boggs makes...urban, jazzy music...within the structures of...folk, bluegrass, and...blues...[s]he calls... “soulgrass,” and reminds me a little of Gil Scott-Heron, if only for the razor-intensity of her words...in a croony-rich street voice...evocative and easy to like.””

"After spending thirty years breaking glass ceiling after glass ceiling, music came back into her life as a form of comfort in dealing with a family tragedy. It didn't take Paula long to realize finding music again was putting her in touch with what she calls her 'true north.' Just as she has followed her own dream, she hopes to inspire others to do the same. Her latest album CARNIVAL OF MIRACLES is a statement of those dreams along with some acute observations of the world around us. The album has made it into the first round of 2016 Grammy balloting in several categories, as have the videos for the title song and the remix of 'Look Straight Ahead,' a powerful look at urban culture."

““Like so many artists before her, Paula Boggs reached the point a few years ago when she needed to leave her day job behind in order to pursue music full-time. Unlike so many, though, singer-songwriter-guitarist Boggs walked away from an executive position: The former U.S. Army officer and longtime attorney served as general counsel for Starbucks, leading its global legal department. “The resurgence of music as my passion, and now my vocation, happened over time by me continually asking the question, ‘What is the work of your soul?’ ” Boggs says. “And as time moved on, that was less law and more music.”””

“Swinging through with the right level of energy is the infectious work of Paula Boggs Band. On “Miss Ruby Kirby Blues” the Paula Boggs Band has a rich full sound courtesy of the undeniable blistering guitar and organ weaving themselves together. This, on top of a colossal rhythm, makes the song unforgettable.”

“The Paula Boggs Band released its first CD, “A Buddha State of Mind,” while she was still with Starbucks. The band’s current lineup seems to be a mix of old and new members. She calls their sound “Seattle brew soul grass,” the “brew” part being a nod, of course, to Starbucks. In addition to Boggs on guitar, the band uses traditional and nontraditional instruments, everything from bongos to banjos. The remix of “Look Straight Ahead” features strong lyrics about rising above the inner city. The remix intersperses rap segments by local artist J. Pinder.”

“Interview with Paula Boggs on Business, Music and Finding Your True North: Retiring from her position as Executive Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary of Starbucks back in 2012, Boggs began her new journey which she describes as her “True North.” And now Paula Boggs shows no signs of slowing down with a calendar full of national tour dates in support of the band’s latest album Carnival of Miracles which was released earlier this year, as well as public speaking engagements, Board meetings, and family time. She is the founder of Boggs Media LLC, and is passionate about speaking out against social issues and racial injustices. If her past is an indicator of her future, Paula Boggs will surely achieve success in the music world.”

"WILD BLUES YONDER: Ex-paratrooper Paula Boggs jumps into music."

“Carnival of Miracles (2015) is the latest album from Seattle’s Paula Boggs Band. At its core, the album serves as an emotional outlet for Boggs as she confronts the loss of loved ones and as she experiences the transition from a professional career to a full-time musician—Boggs quit her job as an attorney and as an executive for Starbucks to follow her passion. Carnival of Miracles is introspective and somber in its reflection of the pain. Yet, underlying the pain is an uplifting message of hope and perseverance. At the forefront of these complex emotions are Boggs’s intelligent and poetic lyrics. By featuring the claw-hammer banjo, lap-steel guitar, accordion, and haunting melodies, the album is rooted in an eclectic Americana sound.”

“[Carnival of Miracles] is a catchy and upbeat album and nicely varied with one song searching a more rock side, an Americana feel dominating others, while jazz influences in a way that stays cohesive. This is an album with many feeling, beautiful songs and strong musicianship produced by Trina Shoemaker who has previously worked with Sheryl Crowe, Emmylou Harris, Queens of the Stone Age and the Dixie Chicks. Paula Boggs Band is not yet familiar to Dutch listeners but "Carnival of Miracles" is a promising introduction. Besides the actual album, the CD also includes "The Making Of Carnival of Miracles," a separate DVD.”

“EDITOR'S CHOICE/EMERGING TALENT/HOMEPAGE Today MUZU has teamed up with HIP VIDEO PROMO to introduce to you 5 new songs that were released in June. We can guarantee that these videos are going to bomb the Internet next week! Check out the amazing clips RIGHT NOW. For their single, “Carnival of Miracles,” Paula Boggs Band uses the tragedy at Newtown as her initial inspiration. She loves her country, and this sort Of senseless tragedy cuts deep. But Boggs is one who knows how to harness the energy around her for the better. The song handles the issues delicately, but paints a poignant picture about how we can all find the silver linings in these moments and use them to grow and care for each other.”

“Her style pulls from all corners: jazz, rock, soul and blues. “I call it ‘soulgrass,’ ” she said, moving back and forth in her chair. And her songs pull from five decades of life experiences: love, death, social justice. A song named “Look Straight Ahead,” (which she mixed with Seattle rapper J. Pinder) was written from the perspective of a young, African-American urban male. She wrote the song before the shooting deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown — but it tells a similar story of a kid walking alone, trying to avoid getting into trouble. When Pinder first read the lyrics, he told Boggs: “Your hero could have been me.””

“Since leaving the business world, Boggs has come full circle back to music. The Paula Boggs Band released its first album, “A Buddha State of Mind,” a mix of rock, pop, soul, blues and jazz that Boggs has dubbed “soulgrass,” in 2010. She quit her job at Starbucks after 10 years with the company to focus on her music full-time starting in 2012. Her band — featuring bassist and backing vocalist Jarrett Mason, percussionist and backing vocalist Tor Dietrichson, lead guitarist and banjo player Mark Chinen, drummer Sandy Greenbaum and multi-instrumentalist Tim Conroy — just released its second album, “Carnival of Miracles,” in March. The band will play Volcanic Theatre Pub with Brooklyn folk group This Frontier Needs Heroes on Thursday. While sadness may have inspired Boggs to write music again, her songs today have a much happier tone. “There’s a lot of it that is celebratory, hopefully uplifting, but I’ve been on a life journey that teaches me things,” Boggs sai”

“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."”

“The Paula Boggs Band is a local Jazz/Blues band that’s beginning to make a splash on the national Jazz scene. Paula shared with us how she gets inspired by real people and real situations when she writes her heartfelt lyrics. Paula spoke emotionally about “Edith’s Coming Home” and how “Edith” was a legal pioneer, becoming one of New York State’s first African American judges. In later life, Edith struggled with dementia and lost that precious something that helped her overcome obstacles and achieve such lofty goals.
