Paul Thorn, Lera Lynn 

When: Fri., June 8, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $15

Exposure to Paul Thorn's music is quickly followed by the question, "Why haven't I heard of this guy?" Thorn was a prizefighter in his 20s and the son of a Pentecostal preacher. His gruff, muscular baritone and surprisingly soulful croon buoy his thoughtful manner. He's a strong enough writer to make it on his songwriting, but he's got roots-rock in his soul, reminiscent at times of John Hiatt. His last two albums have received well-deserved acclaim, and his new covers album features great interpretations of Lindsey Buckingham, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Eli "Paperboy" Reed. —Chris Parker
