about

"Samalot's sweet, girly harmonies add another layer to Paleface's gruff, masculine voice and lo-fi banjo picking -- kind of like Tom Waits and Kim Deal of the Pixies making quirky acoustic folk together." Courtney Devores, The Charlotte Observer

"The Deal: He may have been a guest vocalist for Avetts and former roommate of Beck, but indie folk singer Paleface, who now calls Concord home, proves his music needs no name dropping...The Americana roots of Paleface's indie folk run deep. Dobro, banjo, harmonica, acoustic guitars – they're all here and filling the void behind his raspy vocals nicely. It pairs up nicely with Scott and Seth Avett, who guest on "I Can See the Light." The album has a rough-around-the-edges feel and occasional sounds that make you wonder what kind of instrument is being used – listen for the sledgehammer-on-steel sound in the background of "Dyin' Daze." It's got a groove to it that gets better with each listen. The reocord's got a groove to it that gets better with every listen...A great release to kick off 2008 – if it were released a week earlier, it would have made my top 10 of '07."
Jeff Hannes, Creative Loafing

"This CD is a remarkable collection of neo-folk. The arrangements display a refreshing simplicity and economy of instrumentation and effects, never getting in the way of the poetry of the lyrics by this prolific songwriter." Sarah Hall, Salisbury Post

"Paleface sings heartfelt, rustic vocals on A Different Story that are smooth and with a fair amount of bumps in the road to keep it grounded. Songs on the album are traveling music - freight car jams and side of the road tunes. At times it feels of being recorded on front porches and old rooms with a single light bulb hanging from a high ceiling. A Different Story finds it way into the cracks of the soul, smoothing edges and brightening areas where shadows lurk.
Its Americana spirit and world-weary hopefulness permeates earnest playing with catchy melodies....Paleface could be well on his way to being the Sting of modern Americana, mixing traditional playing with storytelling. The timber and rareness of his voice will surely open doors but the songwriter's sincerity will solidify his place."
Brian Tucker, Bootleg Magazine
