Minneapolis Hall of Fame Indictee St. Paul Peterson will return to New York for his first headlining show since his showstopping performance at Carnegie Hall for The Music of Prince in 2013.

The lead singer of fDeluxe (aka The Family) and a member of The Time (The Bird, Jungle Love) during the heady Purple Rain era the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame inductee will perform at Iridium on March 12, 2020.

St. Paul will perform classic songs from his bands The Family, fDeluxe and The Time as well as songs from his critically acclaimed solo albums and a tribute to his mentor Prince. During the past year St. Paul released his first solo singles in over two decades: “You Got 2 Love” and “Something In The Water” both received a warm welcome back from BBC Radio, American Public Radio, and tens of thousands of streams from fans from around the world.

A man of many talents St Paul has achieved success as a solo artist, band member, songwriter, producer and in demand session musician.In February he teamed with comic legend and long-time fan Sinbad for a sold out show they dubbed ‘Funkedy’. This past Summer he was a headline performer at Canada’s Thunder Bay Blues Festival and his hometown at an all-star concert featuring the likes of Joss Stone, Sheila E. and, Elle King. His new podcast ‘Music On the Run’ which will feature the likes of Steve Miller, Kevin Bacon and Debbie Gibson is attracting 1000s of listeners, further establishing St Paul’s reputation as a consummate professional.

In 2019 his debut European solo tour – his first visit since fDeluxe’s sold out European tour in 2012 – saw him perform to packed houses in France, Sweden, Holland and throughout the UK. In 2018, St. Paul was the musical director and front man for 'Nothing Compares 2 Prince’ which sold out 2 nights at the Sydney Opera House.

Discovered at 17 by Prince, St Paul appeared in the film ‘Purple Rain’ as the new keyboard player in The Time. Prince then recruited him to front The Family, whose self-titled debut was released to critical acclaim, generating the popular singles ‘The Screams Of Passion’, ‘High Fashion’, and the original, and finest, version of the ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, later popularised by Sinead O'Connor. St Paul’s self-titled, debut album yielded the US Top 10 R&B hit single ‘Rich Man’. His second album, ‘Down To The Wire’ saw him hit the US Pop Top 40 with the single ‘Stranger To Love’. George Benson scored a Grammy nomination with the St. Paul penned ‘Song For My Brother’. After nearly two decades The Family returned in 2011 as fDeluxe. The band’s highly anticipated comeback album ‘Gaslight’ was released in October 2011 and quickly became a critics favorite featuring in numerous end of year lists.

St. Paul has recently inked a brand-new label deal and will release his new album in November 2020.
