The Paper Hats is an alias for Nashville-based guitarist WIlliam Tyler. Tyler has also played and recorded with the bands Lambchop and SIlver Jews, in addition to releasing music under his own name. Though the work he has done with aforementioned bands generally falls into indie/alt-country territory, his solo work more exclusively features fingerstyle solo guitar. A few of us from the station missed his solo set at Hopscotch Music Festival this past summer (although not without picking up his incredible 7″, featuring JEFF the Brotherhood drummer Jamin Orrall), but his performance is available for download from NYC Taper.
