Paper Crowns @ Pisgah Brewing Co. 12-7-2016
“The Paper Crowns have this aura of honesty in their music that’s genuine, easy to grasp, yet also not a complete giveaway.” (Waleed Rashidi – IE Weekly)
The honesty found between Spiro and Nicole Nicolopoulos of The Paper Crowns draws from the great duo/couples of the past: Johnny Cash and June Carter, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge. It is the kind of honest connection where the rest of the world seems to disappear while they’re playing and singing to each other.
The duo’s connection began in a mom and pop music store in Southern California while both teaching music lessons. And as their personal connection bloomed, so did their music. Between 2013-14 they played over 150 shows, got married, and hauled all of their worldly possessions with their dog Walter from Los Angeles to Asheville, North Carolina where they now call home.
