Paleo (aka David Strackany) has been on my radar for a while now, however it is only recently that I have started digging into the fantastic song archive within the Paleo website.

Spending a major part of the past few years touring constantly and living on the road, coupled with a phenomenal output of songs, makes Paleo a strong contender for some kind of hardest working man in show business crown.

Beginning on April 16, 2006, Paleo embarked on a year-long project of writing and recording a song each day and then uploading them onto his website. The resultant Song Diary can be downloaded for free from (along with more than 50 songs finished since The Song Diary's completion & the full album, “Misery, Missouri”, which was named one of the albums of 2006 by Daytrotter.

Sounding like a sleepier, croakier Devendra Banhart or perhaps a wearier, more lo-fi Matthew Houck, it is difficult to figure out why Paleo isn't already a more widely acclaimed artist.
