Return of the Paisley Angels

Chris Twist and Jason Steady

A long while back, when I was just a wee lad, I met a charismatic singer-songwriter by the name of Jason Steady. I saw him perform at the Cog Factory a couple of times, and by the third time I was hitting a drum while he sang his kooky quirky songs. Over the next few years we were in about a dozen bands together, then the wheel of fate found us drifting apart.

Cut to two years ago, when we once again found ourselves riding in a van and swapping dumb stories. I had just released “Hello, I’m Chris Twist,” and this time Jason was hitting multiple drums as I sang my kooky songs. Jade and Knife were there for some of them, too! Hi Jade! Hi Knife! We did a couple of tours, camped in the desert and the woods and the high plains, listened to lots of Gram Parsons, and started making plans.

Cut to now, as we release The Return of the Paisley Angels, a collection of songs of wanderlust and wonder, written and performed by both of us, and a corresponding tour that will take us to many of our favorite places and a few soon to be faves as well.
