Over the past five years, Papadosio has created a hybrid blend of Pop, Jam, Psychedelia, Fusion and Electronica that synthesizes the interesting elements of each without homogenizing them into an indistinguishable mass. The pinnacle of Papadosio’s musical chemistry process was evidenced by the quintet’s last album, 2009’s Observations, where Synth Pop burbled and blipped in close proximity to stuttering time signatures and loose-limbed drumming, Ambient Electronic textures and full bore Rock excursions into the center of the mind’s all-seeing eye. The band is finishing up work on a double album, slated for release early next year.

Formed in Athens, Ohio, in 2006 and currently based in Asheville, N.C., Papadosio’s road-doggery includes a relentless tour schedule and every appropriate music festival in this hemisphere. Like the majority of their Jam peers, Papadosio endorses live taping for sharing and trading.
