"Paul Kimbiris lets his lyrics do the talking. Armed with a guitar and a collection of intricately crafted, heart-felt words, Kimbiris has put together a solid collection of primarily acoustic tracks dubbed The Dark Side of Pearl. His music sets the mood of intrinsic reflection, with soft melodies, well placed harmonies, and Kimbiris’ deep and alluring voice driving the course. He presents the spirit of freedom with his music- expansive thoughts and sounds uncontained. The album is a solid listen to ease a workday or set the mood out in the Colorado mountains."
Tim Wenger - Colorado Music Buzz
"What would Dylan sound like with a decent set of pipes? This writer’s contention is that it might sound a lot like Boulder’s own Paul Kimbiris, especially on his latest album, “The Dark Side of Pearl.” His vocals are rich and deep with a timbre that occasionally rattles the ground. And yet, he retains the frantic dips and leaps that define the Dylan aesthetic. His songwriting is pretty darn good, too"
Peter Laffin - Bolder Beat
“4 out of 5 stars Singer/songwriter Paul Kimbiris has toured the world opening for acts ranging from the Dead Milkmen to Colorado’s Gregory Alan Isakov (who receives co-writing credits on “Home Soon”). All of that association with great musicians has paid off for Kimbiris on his first full-length release. Co-produced by Kimbiris and Philip Parker (Glowing House) Dark Side of Pearl was recorded in Boulder and Nederland. Kimbiris puts forth a superbly written effort with songs that are delicately phrased and paired with subtle arrangements that aren’t showy, but tasteful and well played.”
Brian F. Johnson - The Marquee
Kind Hearted Strangers
With rich harmonies and colorful songwriting, Kind Hearted Strangers bring back a taste of American roots into the world of rock n' roll they fell in love with.
Based in Boulder, CO - the Strangers feature songwriter/vocalist Marc Townes, percussionist/vocalist Brian Ireland of Something Corporate, bassist Marshall Carlson of Augustus, and guitarist Kevin Hinder of the funk/rock outfit Envy Alo, who’s skillful and dynamic embellishments add another unique layer to the band’s raw authentic sound.
"...the fiery, eclectic Kind Hearted Strangers stand high above their counterparts, evoking a loose jam-band charm with vibrant, pop-sensible folk that takes influence from the classics without spending too much time dwelling in the past.
With Townes' vibrant, engaging songwriting, Hinder's virtuosic and seemingly limitless range on guitar, and Ireland's drumming that keeps the song's contained while also stretching them to their limits, Kind Hearted Strangers' musical dexterity far exceeds their short time as a band. With a sound already so fully-formed and grounded, guessing where they're going next is an adventure unto itself." - Behind the Scene Press, 2017
