In a recent interview with MTV, music industry icon Randy Jackson reveals how the eclectic North Carolina-based group Paper Tongues got their big break. According to Jackson, Paper Tongues singer Aswan North approached the American Idol judge while he was eating lunch at an LA restaurant, knowing he was also a musician and would appreciate the bandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s unique sound. Check out the video now to hear how it all went down.
Paper TonguesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ blend of rock, rap, funk and soul is quickly making its mark on the music scene. The music video for their single Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ride to CaliforniaÃ¢â‚¬Â has just been added into rotation on MTV2Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s Rock the Deuce and MTVU, with their debut album scheduled to hit stores on March 30th. The band is currently part of the Hello Hurricane tour with Switchfoot. For more information on the band and on upcoming tour dates, visit Paper Tongues’ official MySpace page.
