Paper Moon are from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. "We Can Take The Long Way Home" is a new 4 song CD-EP featuring the song "What Are You Going To Do With Me?" from the upcoming album "Only During Thunderstorms." The EP also has some unique Paper Moon material on it like a remix of "These New Friends Of Yours...", a little ditty called "We Can Take The Long Way", and the covers of Hot Little Rocket's "Down WIth Safe."
For Only During Thunderstorms, the band was looking for an edgier, more energetic sound that better suilted their personalities. This goal was realized with the assistance of friend and up-and-coming producer Ryan Worsley (Dawntreader, Maplewood Lane), who brought new life and perspective to the songs. The first single, "What Are You Going To Do With Me?", was released on a CDEP which has received highly favourable reviews and has charted well on national radio.
Formed in 2000, Paper Moon released their debut One Thousand Reasons to Stay...One Reason to Leave in 2002. The record hit #5 on the Canadian Campus Top 50. Described as "a perfect dose of perfect pop," (London Scene), the songs on One Thousand Reasons to Stay... were "short, sweet, and catchy as hell" (Exclaim Magazine).
Their follow up release - the sophisticated Broken Hearts Break Faster Every Day (2006) reached #1 on campus charts and had critics lauding its "tight, literate and melodic songs...that are catchy upon the first listen" (PopMatters). Singer and lyricist Allison Shevernoha wrote "a compelling pop confessional that recognizes life's petty foibles, its stolen moments and its late reflective nights" (Uptown). National recognition was such that the album was nominated for a 2006 Western Canadian Music Award for Best Pop Recording, alongside the likes of Michael Buble, Jann Arden and Daniel Powter.
Paper Moon has dialed into exactly what it is that makes a great pop song, and they hope to make many more.
