Brooding blues-rocker Paul Thorn gets dark on the new A Long Way From Tupelo. The Mississippi boy has plenty to talk about: He's the son of a preacher. He boxed Roberto Duran. He's a skydiver and former factory worker. And it all comes across in rough tunes about sinning (the heartfelt, country-kissed "All About People") and repenting ("I'm Still Here," a romper with a gospel-gal backup chorus).
