Possessed By Paul James

with guest The Placaters

Konrad Wert is a man of many voices. As a special education teacher, he is articulate and intentional. As an advocate for justice in education, he is passionate. But as an artist and musician, better known by his stage name Possessed By Paul James, his voice is expressive, holding rest and action in tandem. In truth, “Paul James” is a fiction, a combination of the names of Wert’s father and grandfather. Those who have seen him perform, however, would agree he seems possessed by something.
He gained recognition from NPR, The New York Times, CMT, and MTV for his celebrated live performances and 2013 Billboard-charting breakout release, There Will Be Nights When I’m Lonely.
The Placaters are a new twin-cities based 4-piece with a sound richly steeped in Americana, roots, soul and blues which produces a frenzied form of lounge music covering the gap between legends like Sinatra and Waits into new territory like Rateliff and Cauthen.
