Formed over 10 years ago,

PONCHARTRAIN'S music is described as

‘vintage Americana’ – "It's a honky-tonk,

rockabilly, Cajun, bluesy kind of thing. The vibe

is very 40s and 50s, I love stuff by amazing

writers like Little Jimmy Dickens, Leadbelly, Wiley Barkdull and Bessie Smith, so we draw on some

great songs, but play them with our own spirit and sound. There is a big resurgence of interest in

this music at the moment, which is great to see!” Frontman Paul Godden's musical career started

back in the 1970’s, playing and singing around the folk and blues clubs of Bristol and London. From

roots blues, to R&B, country, bluegrass and rockabilly, and he has been the mainstay of numerous

bands since then. In addition to radio and TV work, he has backed and supported the likes of Sonny

Terry and Brownie McGhee, Patsy Montana, Doctor Ross, Champion Jack Dupree, Jo-Anne Kelly,

Flaco Jimminez and numerous 50s rockabilly legends as steel guitar player with Cardiff band The

Rimshots. Paul has also toured and recorded with Van Morrison, and appears on two of Van’s

albums ‘You Win Again’ and ‘Pay the Devil’.
