Paper Anthem Find Power In Poetic Contemplation

    Paper Anthem is the brain child of Fayetteville, Arkansas native Joseph Hitchcock. Hitchcock has music in his blood. The son of a blues singer, he has learned the piano and guitar, and he's honed his voice throughout his young career. With a variety of influences such as Coldplay, Brian Eno, and Tegan & Sara, the man has a natural love for all things music. Taking his versatile taste and injecting it into his music, he churned out a brilliant debut LP By Ghosts which is a stunning journey into Hitchcock's emotional landscape, past, and hope for future days.

    By Ghosts does not connect to any direct genre. With piano riffs resting alongside clashing live and programmed drums, the real treat is Hitchcock's voice. His vocals present a man who is sure of himself even if he may not want to sing about it. The pain in his voice is obvious and you can tell what these songs mean to him. Songs like "The Very Last Platform" eschew traditional songwriting with electronica bursts with an experimental vibe. "Rome" uses a repetitive piano riff to hammer home the emotional intensity of Hitchcock's poetry as a steady ambience fills the remaining spaces of the song. Never a wasted musical moment, the songs are filled with life and are absolutely relentless. As Hitchcock sings, "I'll never lose my way," you can see the bright path lit up before him to musical stardom. With piano riffs creating the backbone of you can see he sticks to his strengths and he is already wiser for knowing to.
