"Melodic songs with a sunny vibe while maintaining an edge." —The New Yorker
Prolific, influential American songwriter & recording artist, Paleface, is currently on tour as a high-energy, full-sound, acoustic-electric duo, with his darling Puerto Rican partner Mo, in support of their new release Beyond the Bells. The album was produced by Paleface, mixed by Grammy-nominated engineer Jason Richmond (The Avett Brothers, John Legend), and mastered by John Greenham, who’s received multiple Grammys, most recently for his work with Billie Eilish.

Beyond the Bells continues the evolution that began on his previous release, Go Forth, with Paleface fully embracing his studio wizardry side. Here, he is as at home behind the mixing board with assorted electronica as he is with an acoustic guitar slung over his shoulder. The overall result of his commitment shows an artist at the peak of his well-honed craft. Rather than employing an everything AND the kitchen sink approach, Paleface is selective, organic—crafting the gestalt of the record with ten songs that relate to one another as a whole. Beyond the Bells is music as event. A primitive, tribal cool that somehow manages to create its own genre. Again.

And the duo just followed up, with a new single If I Could Make You Smile, which released on Valentine 2024, also produced by Paleface and mastered by John Greenham).

Paleface was schooled by underground music icon Daniel Johnston, and discovered at an NYC open mic by Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5), who managed him for the next eight years. Paleface has released albums for Polygram and Sire Records, and indie labels Ramseur and Shimmy Disc. He’s been called a major musical influence by 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 an accomplished visual artist, and his bright & bold music-inspired paintings are collected by fans worldwide. https:// palefaceonline.com.
