PAPER BEAT SCISSORS (Montreal, Canada/Burnley, UK)
Over the last decade the project of Montreal’s dislocated Brit Tim Crabtree has consistently pleased critics on both sides of the Atlantic. Crabtree’s “ethereal” voice (NOW, Toronto) “that never fails to cut through and take hold” (CBC) is tied to a dynamic and off-kilter approach to arrangement. In the studio, Crabtree has worked with the likes of Jeremy Gara (Arcade Fire), Andy Magoffin (Great Lake Swimmers) and Dean Nelson (Beck) and Paper Beat Scissors has shared the stage with Sun Kil Moon, My Brightest Diamond (who he collaborated with on a 2013 live EP) and Tanya Tagaq.
2017 saw the release of the EP “All We Know”, a 17-date tour across Europe with a headlining slot in Munich’s Olympic Park and the recording of a live 8-piece orchestral ensemble show at Montreal’s Sala Rossa with arrangements written by Crabtree, released March 9th 2018 on Forward Music Group.
