Ural Thomas: Portland's Soul King


For real.
With typical modesty Ural downplays his role in the New Iberians, the local zydeco band referred to in the November 6 Mercury article. He's actually lead vocalist and rubboard player, central to the band's spicy gumbo of Blues, R&B, and Louisiana Swamp groove, and he can be seen inspiring them Saturday November 30th at the Spare Room 9PM 4830 NE 42nd at Alberta. DK Stewart will also add his New Orleans barrel house piano and soulful stylings, as a special guest Iberian.
