The Paper Crowns

The Paper Crowns are the genre crossing power duo of Spiro and Nicole Nicolopoulos. The Paper Crowns are earning their reputation as the genuine article and as a band on the cutting edge of modern roots music. Their musical chemistry is a gumbo of Appalachian folk and bluegrass, delta blues, murder ballads and outlaw country that they cook up into a sound all their own. Their mix of modern and traditional performance creates a captivating intensity yet always honors their intimacy and emotional rawness as a duo.

The Paper Crowns’ Spiro and Nicole Nicolopoulos “have this aura of honesty in their music that’s genuine, easy to grasp, yet also not a complete giveaway.” (Waleed Rashidi – IE Weekly) “At first glance you may think you could pigeon hole them into expectations. They might surprise you… Their songs are some of the best in the nation. Take the time and check them out for yourself.” (Juan Bengoa – Concert Promoter/Booking Agent)  The Paper Crowns have played such events as: Downtown After 5 with the Asheville All-Stars (2022), Spring LEAF (2018), LAAF (2018), Warren Haynes Christmas Jam by Day 2016 through 2022, LEAF Downtown, Echo Sessions featured on PBS, Mountain Sports Festival, Fall for Greenville, Downtown Alive, Soulshine Farm & Music Festival, SXSE, Sawdust Festival, Hangar 24 Airfest, Pappy & Harriet’s, they were featured in Pepsi’s City Tour and more.
