PALEFACE a “Neo-Folk Icon” (The Flagpole Athens), is currently on tour as high-energy three piece band with his darling drummer Mo and Grey Revell, in support of his Ramseur Records follow up One Big Party. Paleface celebrated the release with a special guest-performance alongside The Avett Brothers at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, followed by US and Europe tours. Soon after the album’s release, Daytrotter.com featured a brand new live recording session by Paleface, and one of the tracks was voted “Daytrotter’s Best of the Year – Reader’s Choice”. And later PASTE Magazine premiered “PALEFACE – The Making of ‘One Big Party’”, a short documentary which follows the band during the process of recording, touring and performing.
Paleface was schooled musically by friend Daniel Johnston and soon discovered by the legendary Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5) at an NYC open mic. He has since released over a dozen records including two major label releases, and he’s collaborated and performed on three albums by The Avett Brothers. Paleface has influenced and inspired a wide range of musical acts, from electropopsters YACHT, to Grammy Award recipients Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches / Juno), and Beck who calls Paleface “a big influence on my early work” on Annie Leibovitz’s book American Music. At the moment, Paleface is in the process of writing a new album to record later in the year, and in the meantime he’s just self-released Multibean Bootleg Vol.3, a collection of raw demos, live performances and outtakes.
