The Paper Crowns

The Paper Crowns are the multi-instrument, genre crossing power duo of Spiro and Nicole Nicolopoulos.  The Paper Crowns are earning their reputation as the genuine article and as a band on the cutting edge of modern roots music. Their musical chemistry is a gumbo of Appalachian folk and bluegrass, Dixieland melodies, delta blues, acid rock, murder ballads, outlaw country and Southern Gospel that they cook up into a sound all their own.  As a duo they have a full band sound with drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitars and banjo as well as live looping on the spot compositions.  Their mix of modern and traditional performance creates a captivating intensity yet always honors their intimacy and emotional rawness as a duo.
