PALEFACE​​

wikipedia

Prolific and influential recording & touring artist, PALEFACE, breaks through into the world of music production to create his first self-produced new album Go Forth, with strong fan support. The full length album features partner Monica “Mo” Samalot on drums & addtl. vocals. It was mixed by Grammy winning engineer Jason Carmer (Run DMC, Third Eye Blind, Merle Haggard), and mastered by Grammy winning engineer John Greenham (Billie Eilish, Ice Cube, Sam Smith). The high-energy duo is currently on tour in support of the album.

Paleface was schooled musically by underground icon Daniel Johnston, and soon discovered at an NYC open mic, by Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5), who managed him for 8 years. He's released albums for Polygram and Sire records, as well as indie labels Ramseur and now defunct but once mighty Shimmy Disc. He’s been called a major musical influence by a wide range of artists including BECK and The  Avett Brothers. He has collaborated & appeared on three of The Avett’s albums, most notably as the “4th thief” on their album Four Thieves Gone. Additionally, Paleface is a visual artist, and his bright & bold music-lyric inspired paintings are collected by fans worldwide.

"We used to go to all the open mics together. Paleface taught me Daniel Johnston songs on the sidewalk and let me sleep on his couch. He's a great songwriter, a generous friend, and a big influence on my early stuff" Beck

"Paleface is one of the scene’s best-loved products." Time Out NY

"Melodic songs with a sunny vibe while maintaining an edge." The New Yorker

"Paleface’s songs have always been these wry, charismatic anthems, and ever since Mo Samalot has joined him on drums and vocals, the music has entered a charged and high energy rock ‘n’ roll territory that suits his gravel croons perfectly. A habitué of Daniel Johnston who was managed by none other than Danny Fields for much of the ’90s...He's a huge influence on Beck, the Avetts, and others " Detroit Metro Times

"His bright songwriting and even more fiery performance style will set a room in motion... it’s fiercely fresh in pulse, and he and his band light up stages every night." – Orlando Weekly
