Planes on Paper Record Release Show
The Field Group and The Seasons present: Planes on Paper record release show w/Josiah Johnson
Join us to celebrate the release of Planes on Paper's LP, "Edge Markings." Planes on Paper is currently in uncharted territory for a Yakima-based band; since the release of their last record, Planes on Paper has continued to make waves in the folk music world. Their latest release, the politically-motivated single, Television, garnered Planes on Paper an invite to perform at The John F. Kennedy Center for The Performing Arts, as well as radio play across the U.S. and Europe, and a spot in Relix Magazines Five Artists You Should Know.
For this performance, Planes on Paper will be joined by their full band of first-call NW musicians. Josiah Johnson will open the show. It's a release party, and cause for celebration, so we will be featuring Treveri sparkling wines in the bar.
Planes on Paper's last show at The Seasons (celebrating the release of their last EP) sold out well in advance, so we recommend getting tickets early for this one.
** ABOUT PLANES ON PAPER **
Its easy to see why Planes on Paper is starting to attract serious attention on the neo-folkie scene.
Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times
"There has been no shortage of bands that sound like Planes on Paper in the last 10 years of Seattle music, which makes it simultaneously delightful and frustrating when one of them is clearly a full head taller than the others.
Sean Nelson, The Stranger
This is folk music at the highest level.
Greg Jones, Ear to the Ground Music
Planes on Paper expertly maneuvers dual vocals to produce this eerie, serene, beautiful aesthetic  simultaneously mellow and powerful.
Fallon Schlossman, WNYC New York
As a one year-old project, Planes on Paper was already receiving high praise from a nearly endless list of media outlets across the country: The Seattle Times, American Songwriter Magazine, KEXP Seattle, WNYU New York, The Revue, Ear To The Ground, and The Stranger, to name just a few. Now 2.5 years into relentless touring, the praise continues, and the songwriting duo finds itself at home on both coasts of the US, as well as playing some noteworthy festivals... all without yet releasing an album; that unconventional path speaks volumes about the strength of Planes on Papers live show.
** ABOUT JOSIAH JOHNSON **
California native, current resident of the Bay Area, former Seattleite, one-time Torontonian, and long-time tour bus resident. Josiah Johnson's immersion in the musical culture of so many locales, as well as his dedication to constant touring, have given him the means to share his music far and wide, but the strength of his songwriting has carried his music far beyond his physical reach. Best known as a member of American indie-folkers The Head and The Heart, Josiah's solo performances highlight a stripped down, emotive, lyrics-first kind of song-craft, inimitable in its sincerity.
