THE PAPER JETS
With songs like these, it’s no wonder The Paper Jets have become a fixture of the Asbury Park music scene. Their music has been featured on local compilations such as the Asbury Park Summer Sampler, 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge, and My Hometown: A Tribute to NJ, while their powerful live shows have netted them three straight Asbury Music Awards nominations for Best Alternative Rock Band. In addition, lead singer Brian Erickson co-hosts the popular music podcast The Great Albums — which has been downloaded over 3 million times and reached #1 on iTunes’ Top Music Podcasts chart — and the live YouTube TV show One More with Brian Erickson, featuring interviews with local musicians and live performances. Erickson also hosts and curates the monthly New Hope Takeover live concert series at historic venue John & Peter’s in New Hope, PA.
