Meet Beckley Alt-Rockers Heavy-Set Paw-Paws


What are the Heavy-Set Paw-Paws? What’s it like making music in Beckley, West Virginia? And what does “Appalachian Stank” mean as a music genre? I sat down with the alt-rock group’s frontman Tyler Evans to get to the bottom of these questions and more.

Heavy-Set Paw-Paws released Nine Genies in the Family Room this past June, and you can keep up with the band on Facebook and Twitter. To hear more of their music, tune in to ‘A Change of Tune,’ airing Saturdays at 10pm EST on West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
