...Paperplanes have become the hardest working band in Los Angeles...-

Based in Long Beach, Paperplanes have been crafting their songs in studios and stages for over a decade. What originated as a lo-fi songwriting vehicle, has worked its way to being one of Los Angeles’s most acclaimed country rock bands.

In 2003, OC Weekly called Paperplanes “the greatest rock & roll music we've ever heard in our lives.” In 2004 their music was featured in the movie Electric Mayhem. 2008’s Rhinestone Republic received 4 stars from ALTCOUNTRY.NL, and received favorable domestic and international reviews. In 2009 Paperplanes were featured in the District Weeklys “Best of Long Beach” issue. For the past 10 years Paperplanes have seen constant rotation on traditional and internet radio
