Papermoon Gypsys recently took home two LA Music Critics Awards:”Best Blues Artist” and “Fan Favorite”, topping a very competitive field. “We’re honored and, of course, thrilled to win not just one, but two LA Music Critic Awards, in what was a very competitive field,” says Papermoon Gypsys’ guitarist and principal songwriter, Kenny “Big Daddy” Williams. “We personally know many of the bands that competed, and were up against some very talented musicians. Thanks to (LA Music Critic Founder) Robert Leggett for recognizing and involving Papermoon Gypsys in these awards,” Williams concludes.
Lexi G. Is Back !
After a short hiatus, dynamic Lexi G is back in the fold as lead vocalist/front-person for Papermoon Gypsys. “It’s so great to have Lexi back performing with the band,” says Williams. “We’ve always had a terrific onstage chemistry. And with our new band members, this will be the best version of Papermoon Gypsys yet!”
What The Press Is Saying About…Papermoon Gypsys
“Lexi G and her soulful tones steal the show on ’70’s-style blues-rockers like “Love Medication,” the Allman-esque “It’s Complicated” and the mystic, East Indian psychedelia of “Halls of Chandrian.”
“On ‘Halls of Chandrian’ Lexi G’s vocals are bright and cultured, while guitarist (Kenny) Williams sprinkles hints of sitar-like sounds throughout. ‘She’s Tough’ is right out of Elmore James’ music stream, and Williams is tight on the slide with a boogie groove. Nice!
“Kenny Williams plays guitar and handles some of the vocals, and when he takes a lead, it drives hard. Lexi G handles both rough bar-flavored growls and smooth-as-silk vocals, and anytime she steps behind a microphone is the start of an enjoyable journey. A ton of promise for the future.”
“They have the grit, the raw power, and the excitement to get the crowds going and give them a show they will never forget.”
