Paul Thorn, Dark Water Rising 

When: Sat., June 4, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15

Paul Thorn's unassuming nature inspires his music's understated charms. This Pentecostal preacher's kid and former boxer winds through swamp blues, sunbaked gospel soul and unvarnished classic rock, but there's sly wit lurking beneath his husky delivery. There's also a trace of adult contemporary fare in the way some songs sidle along, even if it's overshadowed by Thorn's sweaty vocals and earthy writing. The Mississippi native's songs are populated by an oft-amusing array of ornery, hard-living characters worthy of John Kennedy Toole. Despite a major-label jolt, he's generated props slowly, achieving his first significant breakthrough with last year's Pimps and Preachers, his sixth album. —Chris Parker
