To simply call Paper Diamond a DJ would not give justice to his true artistry. His insatiable need for creativity and design doesn’t stop with his music, as he embellishes the opportunity to pick up a camera and film his own music videos . Other than dropping sweet melodies on the dance floor, Paper Diamond controls his own visuals during his sets, improvising a cohesive show between his tracks and LEDs. No stranger to drawing inspiration, through his Elm & Oak label, Paper Diamond hosts art galleries, events, and guest speakers to give an inside scoop to aspiring artists on how jump-start their careers. We had the chance to speak with the Colorado based artist at the Lightning in a Bottle festival to discuss his ongoing projects with Elm & Oak, Paper Diamond TV, and his upcoming tour with Zeds Dead.
