David Andrew Strackany is Paleo, a lo-fi indie folk musician on a mission. He has been performing on the road since Easter 2006 and wont stop till Easter this year. But what makes this year long tour so special is the challenge Paleo has set himself; to record a new song every single day of the tour. The project is known as the Song Diary and will result in 365 songs being written, arranged, recorded, and then posted on the internet in 365 days. So far around 300 songs have been created and they are all available on the Paleo website for everyone and anyone to download.

Paleo has also set himself some strict rules for the project:
* The songs must be original, and written over the course of the day they’re credited to.
* A day’s song must be recorded, mixed, and uploaded to the Internet by sunrise.
* Every Sunday, he must rewrite the lyrics to the Sunday Prayer, the Diary’s first song.
* The day Paleo fails to complete a song, the experiment is over.

Listening to some of the randomly chosen songs from the Paleo's diary, you'll be surprised of their overall quality. For all the fans of Neutral Milk Hotel, Devendra Banhart, Elliott Smith and lo-fi music in general. Recommended!
