Pickin’ Productions is partnering with KVNF Community Radio and The Paradise Theatre to bring top notch, national artists to the North Fork Valley. Let it be known – this band, Paper Bird, we are extra-excited about. The sound is new, fresh, fun and the music is tight, intricate and delicate all at once. We predict this will be a show you won’t forget.
Since the band’s formation in 2007, Paper Bird has been playing its joyful blend of indie folk, roots, and Americana to delighted audiences nationwide. Paper Bird has released two studio albums, Anything Nameless and Joymaking (2007) and When the River took Flight (2010); as well as Carry On (2011), which was the score to a collaboration with Ballet Nouveau Colorado of the same name. Their unique sound is a combination of a dynamic and energetic rhythm section intertwined with effortless and flowing harmonies and the group’s backbone is their songwriting, musicianship and a general allergy to all limitations and trends. With seven members and no designated leader, the possibilities for Paper Bird are constantly unfolding, with fluctuations in style and mood akin to weather patterns. Their rare and beautiful approach to music led them to be featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and were voted in the Top 10 Best Underground Bands by the Denver Post three years in a row, as well as being 5280’s Top of the Town “Top Local Band.” Most recently, Paper Bird was featured in February 2013 in the New York Times in a story about up and coming Denver bands.
Paper Bird’s fourth album, Rooms, pushes musical boundaries even further than anything the group has done. Paper Bird wanted to make an album that was coherent and truly represented where they are as a band and as people –so they made a hard left turn by enlisting good friend and accomplished film composer Ryan Fritch, to produce Rooms. “Ryan sees music differently than all of us had before this recording process,” said drummer Mark Anderson. “His input on our music opened our eyes to new ways of writing and experiencing sound, helping to create an atmosphere within the album that did not exist before.”
