Musical genres are crossed without apology, resulting in a fresh, yet familiar blend of funk, rock, soul and blues that excludes no one. Since landing on the live music scene in 2008 with their debut CD, “Self-Titled” (yes, that’s actually the title), they’ve twice been crowned “Best band in Pittsburgh”. The buzz heightened when they opened up for Bon Jovi at Consol Energy Center in 2012 and they’ve been a staple at some of the most prestigious venues and festivals since. As they work on their next CD (they seem to be no rush), they continue to make people believe in “Live” music. They entertain… brilliantly.

Their versatility is evidenced by the wide array of musicians and bands that they’ve shared billing or stages with… Bon Jovi, Derek Trucks Band, Amos Lee, Average White Band, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, War and most bands indigenous to the Pittsburgh area (that’s where the heart is).

At the core of this Soupbone collective is singer/songwriter/guitarist James “JIMBO” Jackson. Everything about this man is big. His body, his voice, and most importantly, his stage presence. With charisma to spare, he is the quintessential front man. Having been raised on a diverse blend of music ranging from seventies soul artists like; Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye to folk artists such as James Taylor and Jim Croce, The result is a curiously unique voice that is powerful yet remains pleasant and familiar. As the bands songwriter, he lets no lyrical rules govern. Tragic and often humorous stories and songs are written with specific intentions.
Paul Luc
Paul Luc
PITTSBURGH-BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER PAUL LUC MADE A DRASTIC CHANGE IN HIS LIFE WHEN HE WALKED AWAY FROM A PROMISING CAREER IN THE CORPORATE WORLD. SINCE THEN, HE'S BEEN ON THE ROAD AND ON-STAGE SUPPORTING ARTISTS SUCH AS CHUCK RAGAN, CORY BRANAN, BEN NICHOLS (LUCERO), RHETT MILLER (OLD 97'S), DAVID BAZAN, DRAG THE RIVER, IVAN & ALYOSHA, PETER CASE, THE 10,000 MANIACS AND MANY MORE.
“…artistically, he seems to have reached the proverbial sweet spot. “Tried & True” is a throwback to the albums that were popular in the late ‘60s and ‘70s, a musical statement that would not be out of place in a record store next to works by Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne or Joni Mitchell.”
— Rege Behe | Pittsburgh Tribune Review
“Paul’s music transcends a genre. A lot of his songs could be reinterpreted in many different ways. That’s what makes him such a classic singer-songwriter.

— Randy Baumann | iHeart Radio 102.5 WDVE
