St. Paul, aka Paul Janeway, frontman of soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones, is a man who has had the type of experiences most musicians can only dream of. Having gigged with rock legends like the Rolling Stones and Elton John, Paul’s career has seen him performing all over the world at festivals as far-reaching as Glastonbury and Coachella. Not bad for someone who started his singing career at church.

Having released their “Angels In Science Fiction” in April 2023, Paul has now started a new journey in his musical career branching out as a solo artist.

The release of his debut single, “Colder”, not only previews more new music to come soon but also a slightly new direction from the singer. Built around a huge disco beat, the single is laced with boisterous horns and comes club-ready. Its release saw some interesting comments from fans about the new direction.

Speaking about the single, Paul said: “A couple of years ago, I found myself feeling like I was getting a bit too comfortable with my creative endeavors. St. Paul & The Broken Bones has always provided me an amazing landscape to do whatever I wanted creatively to the point that nothing really scares me in that situation. That’s a great place to be, and I love working within that kind of environment; however, it’s time to get uncomfortable and scared, and nothing does that more than doing something solo. This whole project is wrapped in the idea being out of my comfort zone. I feel so fortunate to have worked with folks that guided me through that discomfort. So, it begins with this song “Colder,” a pop vocal song. Hopefully it brings folks joy.”

Following the release of the single, TotalNtertainment got on the phone to the man himself and chatted about his musical journey, his new solo career, and whether he wants to admit to breaking any bones doing anything really dumb.
