Seventeen years after founding indie-folk giants Paper Bird, vocalist Sarah Anderson and songwriter/guitarist Paul DeHaven embark on their latest collaboration, Heavy Diamond Ring.
HDR harnesses their proven, signature partnership of open-hearted All-American folk-rock towards refreshing new territories. Led by Anderson’s smooth-as-honey vocals and DeHaven’s rugged guitar chops, the band has been described as "open-road, long drive music", possessing "a little bit of twang, and a whole lot of beef", and their live show as "infectious and contagious".the band is rounded out by veteran knockouts Blake Stepan (bass), Mike Lang (keys), and Orion Tate Ignelzi (drums).
Out this fall, their second full-length LP, "All Out of Angels", was produced by Ben Wysocki (the Fray) and Mark Anderson and features a duet with Nathaniel Rateliff.
"Heavy Diamond Ring creates a sound that feels as classic as rolling down the windows in the summer — a super highway to a new frontier." -303 Magazine
"...a helping of contemporary indie-folk that goes down easy, augmented by some subtle, snaky guitar work, walls of harmony vocals and Anderson’s attention-grabbing vocals.” -CS Indy
