Painted Faces is the solo recording project of artist/musician David Drucker.
Born in Miami, Florida, he has assembled various bands to play live shows over the last few years around Florida and now resides in Brooklyn. He has been recording at home and in living rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms since High School, performing under various solo and collaborative monikers. He writes and records all the music for Painted Faces on his own often using borrowed found equipment and whatever may be laying around in terms of instruments and percussion.
He has no specific “sound” for it is constantly changing and evolving, just like his songs themselves. Everything and anything are influences though he must give credit to a long history of DIY home recording pioneers and experimental composers as well as second rate pop stars, B-Horror movies, art both “high” and “low”, mind altering substances, psychedelia, sounds, boredom, isolation, snacks, conversations, chemicals, loudness, noise, environments, dreams, revolutions, time travel, memories, insanity, humor, science fiction, nature, surrealism, philosophy, literature, films, observations, things and people in general.
New Jams is the 8th self released album by Painted Faces and it is being released as a limited edition on Cookies N’ Cream Records, home to his last three releases, Tangleweird, Long Haired Freak! and Insomniac Teeth.
David Drucker currently playing around the New York City area- sometimes solo, sometimes as a duo and most commonly with a revolving collective of musicians of varying musical styles and artistic backgrounds. As of this writing, he’s getting ready to embark on a DIY summer 2012 tour that will stretch from the Southeast to the Midwest and the North East with King Ghost, Corpse Calypso and others. [+]
