In the face of life’s disruptive forces Tres Altman, The Paper Stars’ frontman, found solace in a creative imagination. The sounds and the stories of The Paper Stars reflect these kinds of spaces – where words and music meet in that dusty first light of dawn. The Stars’ album is full of these kinds of ancient books and pungent wisdom whisked from a life well travelled. The Paper Stars embody this image of the opening of the eyes and the taking-in of light. Illustrated otherwise, they are a catalog of human emotion punctuated by visions of a man taking responsibility for what is his. And in the final chapter of this band’s provenance, this tale is about taking control and carving your own, authentic road. www.thepapersta
