Prolific, influential, cult -hero & indie-folk icon, PALEFACE, is now a high energy and charismatic duo featuring girlfriend, Mo Samalot on drums and charming candied vocal harmonies. The pair celebrated the release of their latest album, One Big Party (Ramseur Records), with a special guest performance alongside label-mates, The Avett Brothers at Radio City Music Hall, followed by US and Europe tours. Soon after, PASTE Magazine premiered “PALEFACE: The Making Of One Big Party”, a “documentary short” which follows the band as they record the album and tour. Paleface’s music video for the album’s title-track received airplay through several MTV stations, as well as satellite & online outlets (VHI, CMT, MTV). The duo’s live Mountain Stage performance aired via 130+ NPR stations nationwide and worldwide via the Voice of America Satellite Service + NPR.com.
PALEFACE, was schooled musically by friend Daniel Johnston and soon discovered at an NYC open mic by Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5). He’s released over a dozen records including two major label releases, and has been called a major influence and inspiration by a wide range of artists including Grammy Award recipient BECK. Paleface has also collaborated and appeared on three albums by The Avett Brothers. Paleface is also a self taught visual artist who’s been selling hundreds of paintings at his concerts, art shows, festivals and via his website: PalefaceOnline.com. Much of what he’s learned has come from his interaction & observation of great art while living in NYC. Paleface’s main theme is music…He paints string instruments and uses words & lyrics as if he was painting a song.
