If you like being serenaded in forests, falling in love in dark bedrooms full of fairy-lights, getting lost in the woods and partying with strange creatures this Sydney Epic Indie Folk Band has got a musical score written just for you.

With influences ranging from Fleet Foxes, Vincent McMorrow, Sufjan Stevens and many more of the indie world pioneers, Paisley Park has a lot to prove and will be doing so this year.

The Grand Canopy EP was written, recorded and mixed as a bedroom project by front man Cal Thompson, but after the EP started receiving online attention, in the form of reviews and interview requests, it was obvious that the music had potential. Several months of intense rehearsals later, the band lineup was complete, with Dave, Elliot, Ellis, and Taylor.
The band contains 5 members who have all studied music at prestigious schools including, JMC Academy, and the Australian Institute of Music. Paisley Park’s current line up includes members from the bands, The Barefoot Band, Bec Sandridge Live Band, Yetis, Bexley De Lion and have played shows across Australia headlining gigs, opening festivals, and supporting bands including Set Sail, Firetree, Yetis and more.

"Banjos, mandolins, double bass and ambient vocals mix with raucous percussion to bring forth something that quite obviously has roots in the folk scene, but transcends the sometimes-frustrating one-dimensionality of bands aiming to emulate Band of Horses, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes by incorporating ambience and progressive song structure."
Review by Tunesdays with Cam: Paisley Park’s ‘Grand Canopy’ EP

"It is the second track; ‘Little Bit,’ which crosses into a more emotional, heartfelt and lovelorn sadness, that is the standout here. Like a fleshed-out version of Bon Iver, still tender but with a more full-bodied sound, the gently picked acoustic guitars and stuttering, booming drumbeats under layered vocals and strained yells speak of lost love and heartache."
