Biography

There are at least two artists sharing this name. Paper Bird (Band) (http://paperbirdband.com/) is an indie folk band from Denver, Colorado USA. Paper Bird is also Anna Kohlweis from Vienna, Austria (http://www.paperbirdmusic.com/), who now performs as Squalloscope.

Paper Bird (Denver, Colorado) consists of: Sarah Anderson (vocals, cornet/trumpet), Esme Patterson (vocals), Genevieve Patterson (vocals), Tyler Archuletta (trombone), Caleb Summeril (banjo and harmonica), Paul Dehaven (guitar), Mark Anderson (percussion, typewriter) and Macon Terry (bass). The band’s first album Anything Nameless and Joymaking is an eclectic mix of folk, Americana, jazz, and everything good in the world. Their latest (and fourth) release is Rooms (2013); difficult to pin, one might now describe them as Indie Folk/Baroque Pop.

Anna Kohlweis was born in 1984 and lives in Vienna, Austria. She has been making music under that name since 2005. Her debut album Peninsula was released on Vienna-based label Seayou Records in early 2006. Two years later, in February 2008, Seayou released the the follow-up cryptozoology, highly acclaimed by the music press for its intimate approach and complex lyrics. Her third album Thaumatrope, building choirs out of multiple vocal layers and using field recordings as complex rhythms, was released in November, 2009. Paper Bird is a purely working within her self-set concepts, see her latest work under Squalloscope.
