St. Paul-based soul singer PaviElle French will be performing tomorrow night at Pillsbury House in Minneapolis.
French told The Current that soul music has changed:
"Everything is so electronic now, and so mass produced. And it has been since the 1980s," she says. "You know how they say 'video killed the radio star?' Well once everything became so electronic, soul music changed. Whereas before, people had to form a band and sit down and hone a craft and be great, now somebody can go out on stage alone with a computer."
A full album of her non-computer generated music should be out sometime this year.
