A New Orleans Storyteller
In this episode, Mark talks with New Orleans musician Paul Sanchez. Listen in as Paul talks about writing his first song at age six, growing up in a family of 11 children and playing street ball in the Irish Channel.
Paul takes us on a journey through time and New Orleans, weaving stories throughout the discussion. Learn about the worst band name ever and how Paul made a music video with Steven Soderbergh!
Paul Sanchez released his first solo album, Jet Black and Jealous in 1992. In 2016 he released the sequel; Heart Renovations. Mark and Paul discuss the similarities and differences and why it took so long!
In the years between, Paul was a founding member of the rock band Cowboy Mouth and an actor on the HBO Series Tremè. He was a writer, producer and performer in the musical adaptation of Dan Baum’s book Nine Lives, and a collaborator with the likes of John Bouttè, John Rankin, Alex McMurray and just about every musician in the Crescent City.
By the end of the discussion, you’ll be a fan of New Orleans’ best songwriter. If you already know and love Paul’s music, you’ll learn some of the history and the stories from a New Orleans original. Ever wondered about the story behind Nasty Evil Clown or Meet Me at the Foot of Canal Street?
