" Rob Mortimer owned the acoustic stage at the 1st Annual Hot Tamale Festival, with a unforgettable 'Otis' and covers of 'Raspberry Beret' & 'Jockey Full of Bourbon'"
"As we walked towards downtown Starkville after the MS State vs. Arkansas game, we passed by the Cotton District's 'Deep End'. There were 5000 to 6000 students/fans in the 'Deep End' dancing/partying to a band called GoodPaper & Reverend Robert Mortimer. Never have we seen something so EPIC."
“Good Paper Releases a Brand New Album Rob Mortimer, Ben Skelton, and I have been playing together in some form for almost a decade. We three are. Good Paper, although”
“Rob Mortimer and Good Paper has become a fixture in Starkville's music scene as of late; the band got its start eight years ago in Greenville, a city most notable for blues-heavy musical heritage. Mortimer was able to sit down and speak about the band's experiences. Mortimer:The band started in Greenville in 1999.R.M: Basically,I am a hyper-active person and I love everything about James Brown: in the early days of the band we recorded ourselves playing for a small crowd at Tipitina's in New Orleans.We watched the show on VHS.We decided that our stage presence was awful. When be got back to the Delta,I watched "James Brown: Live at the Apollo."Next, we learned the song "Sex Machine" and I tried to act just like James Brown. "Sex Machine" is a song that has to be done at the end of a show, because of the amount of intensity it brings. I'd rather watch a mediocre band with a gimmick and great stage presence than a band that sits or stands in one place. 90 percent of it is looking good. ”
“The North Mississippi Allstars are once again visiting Rick's Caf tonight and will be accompanied by Good Paper, the four-piece blues/rock group that has appeared at Whiskey Blues, Mugshot's, or Dave's Dark Horse Tavern a time or two.Good Paper, consisting of Rob Mortimer (vocals/guitar/keys/songwriter) will perform first and then set the stage for the Allstars.”
