PaperTrain / Bio

PaperTrain is an amalgamation of music derived from influences that include Blues, Classic Rock, Grunge, and Psychedelia.
'PaperTrain' comes from the minds that created it at around 1996, In Colorado Springs ,Colorado when our original band was presented as 'Eklectic'. We soon changed over to 'Reefer Madness' and after some time finally settled with the name of 'PaperTrain'.We Now Emerged once again Zach Has decided to let the music roll on. Now Based in Oregon they plan on continuing the madness once again.With two new members.

We deliver many sounds and sights for everyone to enjoy. PaperTrain carries with it a high energy and strong stage presence. Songs that can hit every emotion in your body and mind, with the intensity of thunder and lightning. Our music is influenced from several different musicians we have learned from, as well as those we grew up listening to. The experiences that any person has had in this life -- the ups, the downs, and even the all arounds -- can be experienced by the feeling embodied in our expressive sound.

PaperTrain has also played at The Sigma Chi Fraternity Colorado College 6th Largest Frat Party in the Nation 8 yrs in a row from 1996-2003.

We have played with 'Casey Rush and the Raw Edge'.
Zach has also arranged songs for 'Mattie Fields', Big Mama Thornton's sister.
