A Diego’s Umbrella show is a singular, ecstatic experience. One concert is all it takes to becoming a believer. Night after night they effortlessly blend eastern European sounds, marching drums, beautiful harmonies and catchy hooks with a showmanship that has all the fire and unpredictability of youth, marked by a chiseled refinement of years of experience on the road.
The group’s uncanny gift for pleasing crowds, from standard clubs to huge festivals such as High Sierra and Outside Lands, has earned them a zealous and ever-expanding following across the United States and Europe. Continuously touring abroad has always fed their aesthetic, and has resulted in incorporating the scales of klezmer, the strings of flamenco, and the energy of punk rock.
Their new material is some of the most exciting to date, tipping a hat to the raucous Croatian dance parties the band played in their early days. With a quest to fulfill and broadcast the true meaning of Gypsy Rock, Diego’s Umbrella continues to tour the world.
Although all four members were born and bred in the Denver area, their tunes are reminiscent of parts of the world spanning from New Orleans and the American Appalachians to Eastern Europe and the Balkans, to the Middle and Far East. With an instrumental lineup putting the guitar, bass, and drums alongside the violin, keys, synths, and vocals pushed through grainy microphones, Today's Paramount has managed to trick eardrums out of their comfort zones and into a world of sonically balanced dissonance and beauty, aggression and compassion. They've imported foreign melodies and rhythms, adding their own macabre darkness all while remaining true to the nostalgic energy that comes from their roots in old school, passionate Rock and Roll.
In June 2017, Today's Paramount independently released their premier self titled album. At seven tracks and just over 40 minutes long, it runs the gamut of genres and has the tendency to solicit chills of both desperation and inspiration. The album clearly seeks to convey as much of the human condition as possible with the humility of souls who have experienced the ugliness right alongside the beauty. It's impossible to have one without the other.
The band name comes from the idea that today, right now, is the only moment you ever get to experience, and thus it's the most important. In this moment alone you are alive. This quartet is leading by example, and they hope to inspire others to do the same. Because you could be dead tomorrow, Today is Paramount.
Thorough the fog it came...
