PAPA is the project of singing-drummer Darren Weiss, one of LA’s music staples. Once described as “Joe Strummer and the E Street Band,” PAPA blends the urgency and passion of their early punk influences with a classic sense of songwriting that makes their music feel fresh, vital, and somehow like it’s always been there. 

PAPA released an ep titled, A Good Woman Is Hard To Find in 2011, and two lps – Tender Madness in 2013 and Kick At The Dust in 2016

Since PAPA’s last release, Weiss has been busy as a touring and session drummer with the likes Lana Del Rey, Albert Hammond Jr and Perfume Genius and Sky Ferreira,among others. Though it’s been a few years since the last PAPA album was put out, it is clear from listening to pieces of the upcoming release, Weiss has so much more to say, and can’t wait to tell you all.
