November 12, 2010 -- Paper Mountain

Paper Mountain is an acoustic duo comprised of singer/songwriters Alice Conner and Sean Parker. They have been performing together for years melding their different musical influences into a soulful package of blues, folk, country, jazz, rock, and everything in between. They are most at home playing at vineyards, weddings, in cozy coffeehouses, private parties, and festivals. They have had a great deal of success from their debut CD entitled, "View from Above" (recorded at Flat Five studios in Salem, VA.) and have performed live in-studio sessions on 93.7 BOB FM, 89.5 WHRV, and 100.9 WRRW.

During the day, they are both full-time private music instructors in Virginia Beach, Va. with almost 25 years combined experience --Sean teaches bass, mandolin, and guitar and Alice teaches voice, piano, and guitar. Sean has been playing in many bands for over 15 years and grew up in the Roanoke area where he has performed alongside such well-known musicians as Dave Matthews, Cool and the Gang, and KC and The Sunshine Band. Alice was born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA., and in 2004, earned a B.A. in Music from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. She was fortunate enough to perform with the university choir at Carnegie Hall and to study abroad in Germany while attending O.D.U. Since graduation she has been busy teaching, writing, and performing her own music with Sean. Together Alice and Sean form Paper Mountain---Two musicians meeting in the middle of the same art form from different directions...
