Here is paperDoll playing live and winning the Kollaboration NY_2:

They’ve toured Ireland and all the US, but PaperDoll started out in the dirty perdy Lower East Side of NYC.

Virginia native Teresa Lee met Irish native Patrick Moloney in the open mic circuit and along with NJ transplants – Chip Thomas and Jack Koch – they formed PaperDoll. The quartet’s high octane live shows – featuring Lee’s uninhibited front woman style – soon attracted a loyal following in New York and DC’s rock dance scene. In May 2009, Jack Koch (bass) left the band and Steve Paelet joined – rounding out the rhythm section.
After appearing on ImaginAsian TV, MTV Iggy, and a slew of indie films (including critically acclaimed The People I’ve Slept With), PaperDoll were invited to tour Ireland as part of Indie Week 2009 (the only American band selected) where they won over fans in Dublin, Gallaway, Cork, and Limerick.

Their contagiously peppy video for single If Nothing Happened (also featured in a Vick’s Dayquil commercial) was recently touted by Deli Magazine as a remedy for the Winter Blues. Directed by Hip Hop favorite Court Dunn, the colorful film was featured on youtube’s music page.

Often described as Pat Benatar meets the Killers, PaperDoll’s unique blend of nerdy rock pop are gathering them friends on both sides of the Atlantic. 2010 brings the band back to Ireland and to Shanghai where they will play at Fresh 2010.

    Second..

  2. Carl says:

    hmm, never heard of them before

  3. nicodemus says:

    The music’s okay, but I really like their music video for “If nothing happened.”

    I guess they don’t have any videos on youku?

  4. tonytony says:

    What shameless plugging. This is more a promotional brochure than anything else. I just lost a little respect for this website.

    • Carl says:

      Ads are everywhere, an average human sees about 1500 ad per day… but this article is not an ad at all. It reports to us an on coming event in China.

    • Carl says:

      it’s like NYtimes saying Green Day is coming to to NY to perform on a certain day. That doesn’t make it a promotional brochure.

        That, my friend, is ad copy.

        Not that Key isn’t entitled to run ads here, though. To each his own.

      • WeiWei says:

        Just watched their live clips – they’re actually really good!

    The master of the world, only you know
    The secret of a world, only you know

    who cares……

  7. SunWuKong says:

    I’ve seen them perform live before. They’re great!

  8. JenShanghai says:

    This band is awesome live – I saw them when I was in NY! Can’t wait to see them in Shanghai!

  9. bluecat says:

    This band is legit. I’ve seen them play in NY. They’re one of the best live acts I’ve ever seen.
