Biography

Hailing from Erie, Pennsylvania, Paper St. just released their sophomore record, Music for the Desperate (April 04), which was recorded in Nashville with respected indy producer Chris Mara.

Paper St. formed in September of 2001, and since then the band has become one of the most popular acts on the regional music scene. The buzz started with their 2002 independent release, Here to Stay. With its rude distorted guitar riffs and sweet sounding acoustics the album soon became a must-have among fans from all over the area.

Due to their expanding fan base, the band secured the promotional sponsorship of Labatts Blue of Labatts, USA. With the backing the band finally needed, Paper St. began to take on the region with a hefty touring schedule of high-energy hard rock shows. They have shared the stage with the region’s best bands and have also been fortunate enough to play on the same stage and frequent some of the same venues as Bruce Springsteen, Seether, SR-71, Evanescence, The Clarks, Dope, Mushroomhead, and Queens of the Stone Age.

Music for the Desperate is currently being played on more than 240 radio stations across the country and growing. Paper St. also has finished pre production on a new full length album to be called “Make Music” for future release. The new material shows that this band is not only ready to take things to the next level, but that they are already there.
