Concert by PALEFACE at The Camel - PALEFACE w/ David Shultz And The Skyline, and The Itchy Hearts w/ David Shultz And The Skyline & The Itchy Hearts PALEFACE Record Release Tour! More than a decade since his last major label release, PALEFACE, a founding member of NYC's Anti-folk movement, is back with The Show Is On The Road (Ramseur Records). The album is an intimate, 11-song diary that transcends genres with its ingenuous lyrics and deceptively unassuming style - just Paleface on acoustic guitar and harmonica, his girlfriend Monica "Mo" Samalot on drums & backing vocals, and occasional guest performances by friends, including label-mates The Avett Brothers. Paleface is the sort of artist who brings you into his world - his voice is sweetly ravaged and effortlessly expressive, as intimate as a friend whispering in your ear. The album is farewell love letter to his longtime home, New York City, and an embrace of his new life in the South and on the road with darling "Mo". Schooled personally by friend Daniel Johnston and discovered in 1990 by the legendary Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5), Paleface has been a major a influence on artists such as Kimya Dawson (of the Moldy Peaches), and Beck... "We used to go to all the open mikes together. He taught me Daniel Johnston songs on the sidewalk and let me sleep on his couch. He was a great songwriter, a generous friend, and a big influence on my early stuff", Beck on Paleface (American Music-Annie Leibovitz). His songwriting, insturmentation and/or vocals are featured in three of The Avett Brothers Records. PALEFACE toured in the 90's with acts such as The Breeders and Billy Bragg, among others. Today he is back on the road touring the US as a duo with drummer Mo...charming audiences from coast to coast with their hi-energy and dynamic performances, honest and refreshing lyrics, and their raw yet full sound.Fore more info, please visit: www.PalefaceOnline.com
