Paleo is the band name taken by songwriter David Strackany
for his wiry, folk tangents. Strackany is credited with having written
and recorded a song every day for 365 days, while touring the US from April 16, 2006 (Easter Day) to April 15, 2007. The project, "The Song Diary", similar
to a feat achieved by playwright Suzan-Lori Parks in 2003, was covered by USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Magnet Magazine, Paste Magazine, the Chicago Sun Times, the New York Post, NPR Morning Edition, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, and a number of regional U.S. papers.
Paleo performs predominantly in a singer/songwriter arrangement,
with Strackany playing acoustic guitar and singing. Part way into the
Song Diary project, Strackany began writing, recording, and performing
his songs on a half-size children's guitar. As the artist explained at
a performance in Syracuse, New York on April 7, 2007,
the guitar became a part of his repertoire when he realized he could be
more efficient if he had a guitar small enough to play while driving.
He named the guitar Oh! Susanna, after the Stephen Foster song of the same name.-Wikipedia
