Tim Crabtree is Paper Beat Scissors. He relocated to Halifax after growing up in England and recorded a highly-acclaimed self-titled debut album with Michael Feuerstack producing and Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara mixing. Instrumentally, the palettes shift from hypnotic loops through full brass arrangements and screaming lap steel to stripped-back acoustic guitar and layered vocals. The album found its way onto BBC and CBC airwaves as well as best-of the year lists in Canada, Europe and as far afield as Mexico and Japan. Paper Beat Scissors was billed as a ‘must-see’ act of the summer by the CBC in 2012.
Tim is presently working with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes) on a new album set for release in 2014.
