Just Announced: Paper Bird at Fox Theatre - 3.9.12

Paper Bird’s backbone is their songwriting, musicianship and a general allergy to all limitations and trends. With eight members and no leader, possibilities are ever unfolding, with fluctuations in style and mood akin to weather patterns.

When asked what genre of music they play, they answer “joyful.” The eight-piece band consists of three female singers, accompanied by banjo, guitar, stand-up ...bass, percussion and trombone. Young in age but timeless in spirit, Paper Bird continually captures the hearts of new listeners and long-time fans. Their rare and beautiful approach to music led them to be featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and they were voted in the Top 10 Best Underground Bands by Denver Post three years in a row, as well as 5280’s Top of the Town 2009 "Top Local Band". In the last year they have played Red Rocks Amphitheater to an audience of over 8000 people and have shared the stage with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Devotchka, Judy Collins, Doctor Dog, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Glen Campbell, and many more. Their haunting and authentic sound is a refreshing and breathtaking blend of folk, jazz, bluegrass and rhythm and blues.

The band’s inception came a few years ago during a vacation in Breckenridge, Colorado. They wrote a song as a cure for cabin fever, and tested playing it standing on a street corner, where they earned a few dollars and decided to form a band. Shortly after they went into the studio and recorded their first self-released album Anything Nameless and Joymaking (2007), which has been a top selling record in local retail stores since its release. Following releases include: A Sky Underground (2009), When the River Took Flight (2010), and Carry On (2011).
