Celebrating their 25th anniversary year, Vancouver Canadian musician Tom Landa, is looking back on the legacy of his much-loved folk rock band The Paperboys. For a quarter century, The Paperboys have been touring the world and lighting up stages with their freewheeling blend of influences from Celtic and bluegrass, to Mexican son jarocho, brass bands, and Canadian roots. They have been called everything from Cajun slamgrass to worldbeat, theyve received a Juno award (Canadian Grammy), plus two Juno nominations, two West Coast Music Awards, released nine albums, and regularly play two-night bills in the Pacific Northwest. But thats not what matters to Landa now. What means more to me than anything else is to receive letters, emails, or hear stories from people who tell me that our songs helped them through a tough time, or that they used one of our songs for their wedding, or that an album of ours was the soundtrack of their summer. At the end of the day, accolades are nice, but they are nothing compared to connecting with people. Landas song Better Than The Last has become somewhat of an anthem for people who have gone through hard times.

Its a remarkably grounded perspective from a bandleader whos been through it all (including the passing of a band member). But Landas an open-book kind of songwriter, a Canadian grassroots poet who loves to infuse his songs with exotic world rhythms, Celtic melodies and pop hooks. Whats remarkable about the band, is their ability to seamlessly fuse all the different styles and make it sounds like they come from the same place. Their latest CD, Score is full of these signature sounds: Spanish-language songs that reflect Landas Mexican heritage, explosive brass lines from their extended 8-piece ensemble, Celtic fiddle and pennywhistle blazing through an old reel, English Language rock songs with strong pop influences, and a kind of melting pot sound that reflects not only the diversity of the bands home city, Vancouver, BC, but also a larger vision of what modern Canadian roots music should sound like.
