The San Francisco, California based Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra, is the 2007 brainchild of guitarist/songwriter Anthony Paule. Inspired by authentic Soul and Blues recordings of the ‘60s and ‘70s, this dramatic horn driven powerhouse took shape. Known for having top shelf singers, APSO invites newest member, the incomparable vocalist Willy Jordan to the stage. Having worked with Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio, John Lee Hooker and others, Willy holds court from a throne previously occupied by Wee Willie Walker, Frank Bey, and Terrie Odabi. Willy’s commanding vocals and unpretentious stage presence, give audiences an honest, fresh, heartfelt experience.
APSO creates and records their own new classics, and are currently working on writing material for their sixth album on Blue Dot Records. Relatable, empathetic songwriting; pure heart-sung vocals, and supportive, passionate instrumental performances form the backbone of this band. Past recordings have earned them seventeen BMA nominations. APSO has their own captivating sound, but if comparisons must be made those which come to mind are Al Green, Bobby Bland, Bobby Womack, Otis Redding, Tyrone Davis, and the Stax & Motown record labels.
