I'VE BEEN PLAYING MUSIC AND TOURING AROUND THE WORLD FOR A WHILE. I'VE RELEASED OVER 10 LP'S ON DIFFERENT LABELS. MAYBE 11, OR 12. I LIKE TOURING. I MUST. FOR A MORE DETAILED AND PROFESSIONAL BIOGRAPHY WITH AN EMPHASIS ON THE LATEST AND GREATEST PLEASE CONTINUE READING.

Chuck Prophet describes his new disc BOBBY FULLER DIED FOR YOUR SINS as "California Noir." He says, "the state has always represented the Golden Dream, and it's the tension between romance and reality that lurks underneath the surface in all noir films and paperbacks, and that connects these songs. Doomed love, inconsolable loneliness, rags to riches to rags again, and fast-paced violence are always on the menu on the Left Coast."

Yellow Paper Planes

Yellow Paper Planes Website

"Yellow Paper Planes prove exactly why they’re one of the best out there right now. A complete hybrid of spectacular sound, the new album Building A Building evolves, moves, grows & grooves as it plays through a plethora of styles from indie to rock, psychedelic to pop and everywhere worth exploring in between." - Sleeping Bag Studios

Yellow Paper Planes formed somewhat out of necessity after Joshua P. James and Brandon Woods spent a few months on hiatus from touring as Joshua P. James and the Paper Planes. Woods and James started playing together in early 2011, touring fervently through 30 States and some 150 shows. That early collaboration on James’s solo material naturally dissolved as lineup changes sucked the momentum out of two packed years peddling tunes on the road, but there were still songs to be sung.

In August of 2013, after writing an entirely new set of music, this time with a band at the center of the songwriting motivation, a newly formed foursome including bassist, Peter Mendenhall, and multi- instrumentalist, Jeremy Ebert, played their first show as The Paper Planes.

Several early setbacks made it seem like the ghosts of music future didn’t want the band to get off the ground. Right out of the gate, threat of legal action prompted a name change from “The Paper Planes” to the current Yellow Paper Planes moniker. Then, in the winter of their first year, Woods (drummer for the band) broke his hand, which required 3 pins and extensive physical therapy to get back to even holding a drum stick. During that time, James, a self-styled “overthinker”, re-evaluated the set of songs they had written and were planning to take to the studio that spring. The conclusion was to scrap it all and strip everything back to the studs. It wasn’t until after the release of their debut, “Feather’s Touch”, a cathartic 5 track EP, that they were able to establish a clear focus on what they were set out to do.
