Paper Bird is directed and anchored by their big hearts which are ceaselessly creating new songs. Standing firm in no existing genre, Paper Bird's backbone is their songwriting, musicianship and a general allergy to all limitations and trends. With seven members and no leader, this band is pulled in every direction imaginable, but thanks to their unique instrumentation, this Colorado based group is able to merge their spontaneous creativity into one, solid sound.
The members of the band - Sarah Anderson, vocals and trumpet; sisters Esmé and Genny Patterson, vocals; Tyler Archuletta, trombone; Paul DeHaven, guitar; Caleb Summeril, banjo; Macon Terry, upright bass - bring a Jazzy, Folk, Americana sound that pays homage to the American Bandstand of the 1950’s. Still they are able to achieve the Indie rock image and resonance of the current age.
The female vocals create a soulful, dynamic harmony that accentuates each voice, yet combines them into one. The trombone, banjo, and guitar elevate the music to a higher level while the skilled notes of the bass reflect the harmonies. Each style bounces off the other, while each note appreciates the other. They make audiences feel love, excitement, and passion. A show not to be missed, a band that must be heard: Paper Bird is one of a kind.
Paper Bird is a group of passionate, joyful individuals who are committed to making music that is not just sounds, but also, community. Listen to their music, they will make you happy. Come to a show, they will make you their friend.
