Rock /Indie

Brothers Ben and Ian Hutton, joined by Steve Kopandy, have been performing together in different line-ups since 1996. Together they've played hundreds of shows at venues and festivals along the East coast of Australia in recent years. In 2003, Joel Duncombe, a long time friend and partner in the local music scene, came on board to complete the line-up now known as Paperadio. Drawing on a broad range of influences, but grounded in that local upbringing, Paperadio have developed a sound that is melodic, accessible and manages to shine a healthy respect for Rock n Roll. Paperadio's live show is high energy and guitar charged, with big anthemic rock tunes that fall away into emotionally engaging moments, thought provoking lyrics, and an atmosphere that always leaves people wanting more. The recordings of Paperadio have passed the test so far. The band has sold over 2000 EP's at live shows and in earlier line-ups, and have garnered local, and more recently, international, label and management interest. Paperadio gave up a lot to relocate to London in October 2003, but knew that the experience of leaving their hometown and trying their luck in a new country and much bigger market could have big rewards. Since the move, The Paperadio live show has been received well by UK audiences and a London following is growing rapidly. Many are anticipating the first UK Release from Paperadio, which is due mid 2004.
