Biography

Don Paris Schlotman is a New York multi-instrument musician whose solo recordings span a variety of genres and styles. Besides being the bass player, co-writer and co-founder of sci-fi rock band The Sky Captains Of Industry, he also has played bass and guitar for a variety of musicians including Niall Connolly, E.W. Harris, Casey Black, Adnan Sabir, Jo Kroger, and others.

He was born in a freak accident, the seventh son of a lightning bolt and a mountain lion. He plays music the way some people fall over, and his artificial left eye can see 4 seconds into the future. Don makes art, plays and writes music, wrestles conundrums, falls down sometimes, and is a cat lady in training. The reports of his wizardry are greatly exaggerated, although he has been known to make things disappear at times, including but not limited to himself.

Growing up in a musical household created a drive to play, but he also loves how music can be a bridge transcending language and culture. Music makes the world smaller and brings people together.

While in college in Columbus, OH he was a founding member of silly-punk band Mistletoe Beltbuckle which later became Jasper Evergreen. He played bass in The Outhouse Poets, Big Ass Yard Sale, and Heidi Lux, Glare and several other rock bands. He was the founder of The Unpossibles, a lineup-shifting energetic rock band, and in Cincinnati he sang and played guitar in Cat Like Dog before moving back to New York.
