Paper Beat Scissors (CA)

UK only

"Absolutely stunning… wonderful… startling and beautiful." - 'Whispering' Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

Tim Crabtree began Paper Beat Scissors after a move from the UK to the windy isolation of Canada’s East Coast.  The Paper Beat Scissors live show is an intense and intimate experience – solo finger-picked laments interweave with a haunting voice that slips into the music, then darts back out to pull the listener in.  Having caught the attention of his adoptive homeland with the eponymous debut (mixed by Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara), attention has been swelling on this side of the Atlantic with BBC plays and captivating sets at festivals across Europe (including Wilderness and Rolling Stone Weekender).  No stranger to touring, Paper Beat Scissors has shared the stage with the likes of Sun Kil Moon, Great Lake Swimmers and Clogs & My Brightest Diamond. The electronically-tinged new album “Go On”, recorded by Dean Nelson (Beck, Bat for Lashes), will be released in the UK in February 2016.
