PALEFACE

PALEFACE

Alternative, Folk, Indie, Rock


 
Prolific recording & touring artist, Paleface, breaks through into the world of music production with his first self-produced new album Go Forth, which just released. The full-length album also features his partner Monica “Mo” Samalot on drums & additional vocals. It was mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Jason Carmer, and mastered by John Greenham, who just won several Grammys for his work with Billie Eilish. Paleface and Mo are currently on tour as a hi-energy, full-sounding duo, incorporating the use of acoustic instruments (guitar & drum kit) and electronics (guitar pedals, subtle looping, and drum triggers & pads).

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.
