Biography

About a year after, Pensacola, FL band, The Cripple Lilies, released their first and only studio album La Bete, Chad Bishop, frontman for The Lilies, returned with a new vision and a new band… Paper Scissors Rocketpack. Bishop’s, but more specifically Rocketpack’s, collective new sound is lighter, more pop-informed, and notably more sophisticated.

The five accomplished musicians comprising Rocketpack have a rich sonic texture to their sound, accompanied by a folksy tempo, lilting rhythm and vocals. Upon first listen, they present the type of sound that suddenly makes the listener realize they’re not skipping through songs in the attempt to quickly get a taste for the music, but rather listening to each song in its entirety.

Bishop’s lyrics are reminiscent of the Romantic tradition of the classics as well as the Modernist and Post-Modernist movements, largely due to his degree in English literature from the University of West Florida.

Rocketpack is comprised of Chad Bishop on lead vocals and most rhythm guitar work, Brandon Warren on percussion, Brandon Clarkson on six-string upright bass, Aaron Finlay on electric guitars and Aaron Clark on violin. Their full-length album, Escapist vs. Exit, was recorded at Chase Park with celebrated producer Dave Barbe.
