Biography

New York City (2006 – present)

Only Son is the solo project of former The Moldy Peaches lead guitarist and Stipplicon frontman, Jack Dishel.

Born Yevgeny Leonidovich Dishel in the former Soviet Union, Jack arrived in America as a three-year-old Russian refugee. A music fanatic from a young age, Jack got his first ramshackle drum set after seeing Tommy Lee spinning in midair above the crowd in Motley Crue’s “Wildside” video. That spawned his “suburban metal head” phase which gave way to a lengthy “urban street kid” period which began at the age of 14 upon hearing “Fuck The Police” on a friend’s stereo system in Queens.

“All of a sudden my pants were sagging and my hair was buzzed and all I did was listen to hip-hop, play handball and most importantly, write graffiti”, says Dishel.

He became so obsessed with it that he spent the next few years running along elevated train tracks painting NYC walls, tunnels and trains. After numerous escapes from the police and hundreds of pieces all over the city, Jack felt satisfied with the form and called it a day. By the end of his teens he had become an underground celebrity and had his work featured in numerous graffiti magazines and videos across the country.

Once in college, Jack got his proper introduction to indie rock and spent hundreds of hours soaking in the music of Elliott Smith, Built To Spill and Blonde Redhead.

He learned to play guitar quickly and began writing and recording onto his new four-track. After graduation, Jack moved to New York City and recorded two albums of his songs under the band name Stipplicon.

    We talked a little bit after Regina's concert in Rio, he's a very nice guy. Liked his presentation with the iPod as well. <3

    Discovered him through Regina's new album (bonus track is absolutely the best track on the album, imo). Think I'll be buying his album as soon as I can afford it. Was really surprised to learn he's the guy from Mouldy Peaches!

    Saw him with Regina Spektor at the Commodore in Vancouver. Excellent overall, though I prefered his songs with just him and his guitar. Also, the first song he played, which I loved, isn't on his album. :(
