    Default Paper Dolls Band - Pray for Rain

    This is the very talented Victoria Kelley, who, if you haven't heard, has unbelievable monster chops on mandolin besides being a great singer. This is a video from her new band Paper Dolls.

    Here's a video of Victoria displaying some of those monster chops. This is from an earlier time, when the current trio was part of a larger family band, Band Of Kelleys. If the recent video is indicative of the new lineup's identity, they seem more intent on featuring Victoria's singing and songwriting, a bit more than her playing. That's not to say there isn't evidence of her skill - indeed, the mastery of her instrument she shows in her perfect execution many times of those slides is proof of that - but it seems that, much as Sarah Jorosz currently and Alison Krauss beginning long ago - she's concentrating on other aspects of her musicianship.

    Or that's just what they deemed appropriate for this song.

    Well, now! Right there are some gargantuan chops. (In other words, giant monster chops. )
