The choppy waters of the Thames lie in one direction, and the urban sprawl lies in the other. \nHe is now hard at work on a new up album, due in 2019. The first single 'Idiot' was supported by BBC 6 Music, and by John Kennedy on Radio X. It was also chosen by Geoff Lloyd on Absolute Radio as his Record of the Week. \nThe 'Mr Wrong' EP followed, winning further support from BBC 6 Music and Radio X. The title song has been compared by Stuart Maconie as being, Brilliant, and having, shades of Robert Wyatt. The video, hand-drawn and animated by Paperface himself, received a premier on the much reputed Clash Music website.\nHis first album, 'Out of Time', was described by critic Richard Smirke as a gorgeously rich slice of crystalline pop that evokes classic records by the Walker Brothers, Love, and Burt Bacharach an exquisite debut album.\nPaperface is blessed to have a group of musicians that are prepared to follow him wherever he goes. Despite most of them now living in France, they simply get on their tour bus and make their way to where they are needed. \nBeguiling, clever, sad, and really funny at the same time I love this! \nLauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music\nThe Mysterious 'Paperface' my record of the week. Brilliant! \nGeoff Lloyd, Absolute Radio\n On my 6Music Recommends show, Paperface got a big response from listeners absolutely beautiful \nStuart Maconie, BBC 6 Music \nI've been an idiot for not playing that sooner. Excellent! \nJohn Kennedy, Radio X \nWow! That's something really special. Quickly becoming one of my new favourites!"\nChris Hawkins, BBC 6 Music\nSupport from Jem and Maitreya\nJem and Maitreya met a few years ago at a heated residents' association meeting, local to neither of them, and have been cheerfully writing and performing together in various London venues ever since. Both songwriters have racked up many years of experience in previous musical incarnations and have gained popularity with their songs, harmonies and pretty guitar twiddles. Not to be missed.
