Biography

Pablo is a name of at least four acts.

1) A pseudenym of Michael Hunter (aka Butch Cassidy Sound System), an established UK producer and musician. His album is called: “Turntable Technology”, feat’ Record Shop (2009, Soma Quality).

As well as popular tracks on compilations, e.g. Do What You Gotta Do, very limited records have been released on: Guidance, Fenetik / Soma, Good Looking Records, Red Hook Recordings and Howlin’ Records - which included Roll Call (aka “Roll Call :7am”).

Hunter has also composed the music score to Grand Theft Auto IV including the theme “Soviet Connection”. Also did the music for GTA San Andreas.

2) An New York, USA acoustic / quintet of two sets of brothers and a wife: ex-Awek Paul Schalda (vocals, guitar), ex-The Realistics Will Schalda (keyboards), Paul’s wife Maggie Schalda (vocals, keyboard), Michael Strandberg (guitar, bass, lap steel) and William Strandberg (drums). Their début album was “Half The Time” (Oct 2006, Curb Appeal) and their latest is “Here I Am” (11 Feb 2011, Unit Records).

Paul has a ghost’s voice, an old haunted soul that shivers its way up through his mouth to share its cracked-glasses view of the world with those of us lucky enough to listen. The band is the vehicle for that voice and the lives it’s lived. Previously heard draped over the Pavement-influenced treble clang of outer-borough indie rock heroes Awek, Schalda’s distinct and affecting vocals stand at the band’s center, drawing chills from the tight economy of his lyrics and conveying something deeper than most words usually get across anyway.
