Michigan Based Trio Fly Paper Comes Out of the Gate Strong on Their Self-Titled Debut Release


Artist: Fly Paper
Title: ‘Fly Paper’
Website: http://www.flypaperrock.com

Overall Album Vibe: The band Fly Paper started out life as lead singer/lead guitarist Micaela Kingslight’s solo act in 2008. Fast forward to when Micaela meets Joe Chamberlin (bass/vocals) who worked on her “Still” release. Then in late 2010 the final piece of the band puzzle fell into place when drummer Ashley Ickes was added. The band officially changed their name to Fly Paper in early 2011. The band’s new self-titled debut release is a mix of alt/ blues/ rock music with undertones of jazz beats also sprinkled throughout it. While Micaela Kingslight’s lead vocals are the rudder that masterfully steers this musical ship, with songs lasting on average 5-6 minutes there’s a lot of room left for the instrumentation (guitars/drums) to romp also freely in the songs. The best track on the release is, “Blackwater.” A track that offers up a rock sound with some blues notes added in and features a plethora of both guitar and drum work that’s well complimented by Micaela Kingslight’s vocals.

Review Tagline: On their self-titled debut the band Fly Paper offers up a delightful mix of music that’s filled with lively guitar and drum beats that’s topped off with magnetic vocals.
Standout Tracks: “Blackwater”, “Any Minute”, “It’s Gonna Rain”
