Who is Paper Bird, apparently cryptically captured above?

Paper Bird is the one-woman home-recorded musical project of Anna Kohlweis, who lives in Vienna, Austria. She’s been making music under that alter ego since she moved to Vienna in 2003; prior to this, she claims to have been raised in a woodland cave by fierce hobgoblins!

She’s released a few download-only EPs via the Paper Bird website, followed by the release of other songs on the Austrian label Seayou Records. (Source.)

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    I nominate “raised in a woodland cave by fierce hobgoblins” as one of the best musician back stories ever!

    I found more details on the web:

    paper bird was born in the carinthian woods and raised by a tribe of fierce hobgoblins in a cave until the age of five, when she accidently took the wrong bus to hobgoblin nursery and ended up in a library where she discovered her love for civilization. she taught herself to read, write and play a couple of funny little instruments. as things began to bore her, she packed her things, said goodbye to the hobgoblins and moved to vienna, where she began to record songs in her bedroom, which she has been doing ever since. so far, she has released a debut album on seayou records, called PENINSULA, which is available from herself, the record label and from a couple of record stores in austria.

    I can totally sympathize, since I find bus schedules confusing also, and I’m 40! (well, I will be next week).

    I think due to her young age at the time she probably did not understand the Hobgoblins and is incorrect in believing they are fierce. The Hobgoblins are simply misunderstood.
