This is definitely not a conventional album and I am not sure how I feel about that.

Their Myspace page describes themseleves as "One part soul, one part pop, one part jazz, and a dash of rock and roll thrown in for good measure." I would say that's an accurate description. These guys are great! They infuse the piano nicely into their pieces, and the lead singer's voice is very soothing, very pleasing to the ear. A very feel good album--Spin it!

Paris Falls hails from Houston, Texas.  They recorded their CD, Volume III in their home recording studio, in hopes to fulfill a mainstream style of classic rock.  Their unique sound reflects the smoothness of The Shins and the vocals/instruments reflect the melody of a few songs from the Foo Fighters.  They deliver a chill sound, but can still be classified as rock musicians.
