Paul Sanchez is coming to Monroe’s February 2.
The native New Orleanian is best known for Cowboy Mouth, his role in the HBO series Treme, and for the musical adaption of Nine Lives by Dan Baum.

When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, like many people there, Paul was tremendously impacted having lost his home, stating, “I lost my home, my possessions, community and, eventually, my job after the flood. I was changed, am changed as a person and it couldn’t help but change my music.”
