Soul Papa

I'm the kind of girl who falls in love with a voice. Jason Wade from Lifehouse. Johnny Rzeznik from Goo Goo Dolls. Caleb Followill from Kings of Leon. Kurt Cobain from Nirvana. Dave Matthews from The Dave Matthews Band. John Mayer. Andy Nicolai (who many of you probably don't know, but here's a link). Jared Leto from 30 Seconds to Mars. And Papa from Soul Papa.

I went to school with Papa and also had the privilege of being in the school choir with him. During our school trip to Hawaii one year, him and a few other guys were standing around outside and busted out in harmony like a barbershop quartet that nearly made me drool. Literally the moment I first heard Papa sing, my knees became weak. He opens his mouth and honey pours out as he plays his guitar. I was one of many, many girls who fell head over heals simply because the music that came out of him was intoxicating. Whether him and his band were covering another Sublime song or they were trying out their own tunes, I was hooked.

The Infamous Papa
Papa's bad boy vibe certainly didn't hurt either. With his long curly hair, laid back attitude, and inherent charm, Papa could make any girl melt...and he did. He probably still does! I haven't seen him in ages, but I've been casually following the progression of his band, and I figured I could use this as a forum to share the love. So enjoy some free tunes while they last and "like" them on Facebook.
