Paul Nipper: Kamikaze Heart

Paul Nipper’s new release Asphalt and Heartaches ups the ante from his debut Rumble Strips, and is a mixture of hardcore Texas Twang, fiery pain-singed vocals, dance hall sweepers and rockin’ country blues.  An ode to the life of a rambling musician, all for the sake of the song, the album is strong and will most definitely extend Nipper’s reach beyond the walls of Texas.  Standouts include the heart wrenching, yet incredibly beautiful Mama Loved Roses, the Waylon-grooved Flyin’ High,  Asphalt and Heartaches as well as Texas Fiddle Legend Doug Moreland guesting on Fiddlers Lament.  Kamikaze Heart is a “must get” addition to the playlist of any true honky tonk lover or Texas music fan.
