Paper Bird is touring to support their upcoming fourth album, due out on March 26. The eclectic, Denver-based, indie folk group push their musical boundaries on Rooms, building on their signature sound with dynamic rhythms and flawless, flowing harmonies. The result is a coherent representation of who Paper Bird is - as both a band and as people. They accomplish this with the help of good friend and producer Ryan Fritch. As banjoist/guitarist Caleb Summeril describes the record as "more of an indie-folk sound than a traditional folk sound." Since their formation in 2007, the band has been featured on NPR's All Songs Considered and been voted Top 10 Best Underground Bands by Denver Post three years in a row. Paper Bird is Mark Anderson (drums), Sarah Anderson (voice, trumpet), Paul DeHaven (guitar), Esme Patterson (voice), Genevieve Patterson (voice), Caleb Summeril (banjo, guitar), and Macon Terry (bass).
He's My Brother She's My Sister have seen a colorful variety of phrases used to describe their sound, including "flamboyant folk," "psych-acoustic," "desert pop," and "estranged and glamorous." This is thanks to the array of styles they employ, both modern and antique, as well as their eccentric attire and stage presence, both sincere and theatrical. The group also boasts a unique flair for instrumentation, including a rhythm section featuring a tap-dancing drummer. LA Record has exclaimed, "The songs are as catchy as a radio pop jam, but throw off the trappings of plastic pop and wrap you in fur, folk, and the last drops of moonlight." The band recently released their latest LP, Nobody Dances In This Town. He's My Brother She's My Sister features the brother/sister duo of Robert Kolar (vocals, guitar) and Rachel Kolar (vocals, tambourine), as well as Lauren Brown (percussion), Oliver Newell (stand-up bass), and Aaron Robinson (lap slide).
