Heavy Diamond Ring
Twelve years after starting the indie-folk giants Paper Bird, Sarah Anderson (vocals, trumpet) and Paul DeHaven (guitar, vocals) embark on their latest collaboration, Heavy Diamond Ring. Drawing from ‘70s FM folk rock and their distinct brand of open-hearted songwriting, HDR harnesses their strong and proven partnership toward refreshing new heights. Led by Anderson’s smooth-as-honey vocals and DeHavens’ rugged guitar chops, the band features knockout players Blake Stepan (bass, vocals), Mike Lang (keys, vocals) and Orion Tate (drums) expanding the band up to a 5 piece that make their live show one to remember. HDR’s all-American vintage sound draws comparisons to the powerful vocals and charisma of Grace Potter, story telling lyrics similar to Shovels & Rope and live rock performance of Fleetwood Mac.
