Not only has Canadian East-Coast pop-rockers Paper Lions found great success in garnering the attention of major print and online publications across North America, this energetic four-piece has also toured with North America’s top heavy hitters such as CAKE, Electric Six, The Rheostatics, Joel Plaskett, The Golden Dogs, and Hey Rosetta!

Here are some bands they have been listening to. Maybe you should too!

Boxer The Horse – Fantastic PEI band of youngsters marry classic kinks with clap your hands and say yeah vocals. With an unmatched ear for pop arrangements  and brilliant lyrics, their new album “If You Please” is one of the best things to ever come out of our small province

Parlovr – Montreal 3 piece thats getting plenty of well deserved praise for their 90’s tinged  scrap rock. We played with them a few years ago and were truly blown away. Their self titled record his just been rereleased through dine alone.

Milks and Rectangles – Another great PEI band who are starting to expand beyond the province.  Think a not-boring interpol with bigger hooks. New EP “Troubleshooter” is short but sweet.

Long Long Long – The newest incarnation of the supremely awesome York Redoubt (RIP). These haligonians pick up where YR left off, adding a extra dash of weirdo. “Shorts” EP has just been released.

Owen Steel – An old childhood friend who has couch rambled his way around the maritimes since highschool. Owen’s simple and honest folk songs are delivered through an unmistakable low growl. He just finished a tour playing on Via Rail trains in exchange for free travel.  A true troubadour.
