The release in question, Live at Twist and Shout, is due in stores on Tuesday, October 6. And while a record store may seem an odd place to record a live album, for Paper Bird it's merely par for the course. "We've done so many random gigs over the three years of being in a band," Summeril enthuses. "We've played on the side of the road in Breckenridge; we've played bowhunting conventions, the cowgirl hall of fame. You gotta go shake your money maker when it's time."

While learning to adapt to any gig is an invaluable skill that Paper Bird has mastered throughout the years, there are still plenty of slings and arrows to navigate. "I think a lot of musicians just tell people their problems," asserts Patterson. "In this band, I've always try and find a solution to it. That's what I write songs about. One of my favorite things about this band is it's such an uplifting thing. Playing and listening to music is a solution.

"It's always a cathartic experience playing music with these folks," says DeHaven. "I think we've learned so much about interpersonal communications and how to non-violently communicate with each other — not that we're violent people!"

Birds of a feather: Paul DeHaven (from left), Sarah Anderson, Esme Patterson, Macon Terry, Genny Patterson, Tyler Archuleta and Caleb Summeril are Paper Bird.

"It gets violent sometimes," Patterson interjects. "The only way out of this band is a body bag!"
