THE PAPER SEA is the solo project of Jared Matt Greenberg, cornet player and keyboardist for the post-rock quintet Whale Fall. Greenberg was a founding member of 1990s San Francisco shoegaze band The Rosemarys and teamed with Charles Wyatt to form Charles Atlas in the early 2000s, as well as playing with Dart, Sutro, An American Starlet, Carta, John Vanderslice, and others. After experiences touring the world and placing music in film and television, Greenberg comes home with THE PAPER SEA: intimate instrumental music recorded in Los Angeles, grounded in piano, laced with synths, organs, strings, and horns, and resonant with childhood memories, wistful moments, and lasting love.
“Uplifting ambient music that leaves a lasting impression, like the slow fade of sunlight across a glistening field as night falls across the horizon.” - Caleb R. Newton
“Greenberg has used the last year or so to mine a seam of intimate creativity… an outstanding piece of work.” - Ben Twomey
