Still working on that hot first release.



The five Ohio-born boys of Paper Street Music Company each moved to Nashville between 2011 and 2014. Prior to the group’s organization, they consistently played together in different variations since 2008. The latest line-up was finalized in November 2015 with a name-change to Paper Street Music Company in January of this year. Their Americana-Rock sound is a synthesis of the inspirations brought by each member. Guitarists Dave Schaefer, Tim Koly and John-Paul Gerner balance and counter each other with riffs that are at times aggressive and edgy, while rhythmic and rustic at others. Gerner’s excellence on the harmonica blends with and builds off of the melodies of Greg Smith on the piano. Smith’s occasional use of organ fills out the sound with drummer Bobby Sweeny’s exceptionally versatile percussion, which can range from a simple Americana busk-beat to a heavy blues groove. 
The guys have supported venues which feature local music such as the up-and-coming Venue 109, The Local below B.B. King’s Blues Club and The Rutledge – now closed. They have also played the more iconic stages in Nashville, such as Springwater Supperclub and Lounge, Foobar and The End. The band is currently recording an EP at The Bomb Shelter recording studio where Alabama Shakes’ premier Gold Album was cut.
