They're hands-down the best live act -- from Denver or from anywhere -- that I've seen in some time." -John Zwick, Yourhub.com.
"For their sound is the song of a million middle century charms playing as one grand symphony. Their sound is black and white twentieth century America at its best. It is the world smiling. It is the world singing." -Jonathon Bitz, Syntax Magazine.
"Any seven-person band that lacks a drummer and still tugs at your soul simply stands out - no matter what your musical preferences. ...This band is a must-see!" - Denver Women's Examiner
"They make audiences feel love, excitement, and passion. A show not to be missed, a band that must be heard: Paper Bird is one of a kind." -tahoe.com
"With guitar, banjo, and trombone backing joyous harmonies, the folk orchestra cuts softly but surely through indie-rock coolness. Paper Bird's debut CD Anything Nameless and Joymaking, came out last year, and it deftly captures the warmth and wonder of the band's stage presence." -The Onion A.V. Club
"Paper Bird is at the very top of my list. I'm hopelessly smitten with the vocals of this trio of ladies (Esme and Genevieve Patterson and Sarah Anderson) and the pastoral backdrops created by their male counterparts (guitarist Paul DeHaven and Tyler Archuletta and Caleb Summeril, on trombone and banjo, respectively). Imagine a more beguiling Jolie Holland with the sublime, mellifluous, old-timey harmonies of the Chordettes. This is music to fall in love to - or with, as the case may be." -Dave Herrera, The Westword
"...onstage the members of Paper Bird dont just look like they get along or play well together, they look like they love each other. They look like theyre having a great time. When they take the stage, the love spreads through the crowd like a beautiful case of pinkeye, and unless youre the coldest bastard since Leona Helmsley, you will be infected. Symptoms include giggling, Snoopy dancing, and stranger-hugging." -Jef Otte, The UCD Advocate
"In the midst of mainstream bands hot off the production line, we find Paper Bird, a musical manifestation of the roots and philosophy that Coloradans share." -Josie Dembiczac, The Boulder Weekly
