The best kept secret in music


Draw Tippy adopts the pop-punk genre and runs with it into a synth-pop landscape where humor, catchiness and genuine entertainment prevail. It lingers somewhere between a punch line, a broken heart and a consistent 1980’s dance compilation.
-Jay Riggio, PrefixMag.com

Draw Tippy is filled with the explosive genius of a modern-day slacker-geek musical savant possessed by the spirit of every great 80’s dance band. It's the completely fulfilled vision of an audaciously talented music lover whose greatest artistic ambition is to make you smile.
-Jason Warburg, DailyVault.com

Draw Tippy makes no bones about aiming the music straight for the TRL crowd. It may be lightweight, fun pop-rock, but few of Draw Tippy's peers manage to do it with the same level of wit, imagination, and infectious energy.
-Jeff Cambron, SonicSlang.com

The music made me feel like bouncing in my chair. With a nod toward 80's bands like They Might Be Giants, XTC, and Moxy Fruvous, this one man bandleader uses electronic and melodic creativity to present 14 songs of catchy pop deliciousness all by his lonesome.

Like Blink 182 gone to Yale, Draw Tippy's dexterity in manipulating and fusing genres surely demonstrates a maturity beyond his peers.
-Genevieve Will, IndieMusic.com

Draw Tippy proves that artists don't have to take their music so seriously in order to be engaging or entertaining. This 14 track CD courageously incorporates wit and quirkiness with a cheesy 80's production style that miraculously avoids sounding corny.
-Gian Fiero, MusesMuse.com

The lyrics all have a somewhat bitterly honest and yet touching sense to them, as if they are taken from the diary of someone from their teenage years all the way up to their late 20's. I can't get enough of this CD. Excellent. Highly recommended.
-Jason Baker, SynthPop.net

Draw Tippy sounds like it is made for a MTV buzz clip video. His yearnings for 80's synths, emo styled vocals, extensive love of pop hooks, and bouncy choruses make the songs light hearted and fun.

Yeah, this is the party shit! A lunatic combination of Timbuck 3 lyrics, Weezer guitars and breezy Electro beats. It’s happy, funny and quite charming!

Feeling a bit camera shy



Trucker hats, glam guitars, dancing hipsters, vintage synthesizers, rave scene romances, Detroit break beats…and that’s just the first song on the new, full length CD from Draw Tippy. This self-titled debut is crammed with melodic modern rock anthems seriously hooked on the 80’s and yet it’s so much more. It’s Brooklyn Electro Clash for fans of Britney Spears. It’s moody British Synthpop for fans of Weezer. It’s D.C. Skater Punk for fans of Brian Wilson.

Lyrically, Draw Tippy muses about the highs and lows of modern love, the pains of growing up and the rigors of being oneself. Entertaining and twisted with honesty, each story unfolds like a juicy phone conversation with a really good friend.

Musically, Draw Tippy has meticulously crafted hooks that stay in your head like that deadbeat friend who crashes on your couch and won’t leave. Crunchy guitars, sing-a-long choruses, tight harmonies and analog blips, beeps and sweeps populate every song and only when called for.

So who is this Draw Tippy anyway? Well, it’s actually just Dave Pachence. Poster boy for the do-it-yourself musician, Dave locked himself away in his NYC loft with a little gear and a lot of determination. A year later he emerged with a beard and thirteen completed songs he wrote, sang, performed, arranged and recorded himself.

Dave has taken a wide range of life experiences including child actor, Dead Head and advertising copywriter and blended them with his obsession for music. The result is hopefully something that sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard.

The new, self-titled, self-released CD from Draw Tippy is a must listen for anyone fond of ultra-catchy, mega-hooky, super-memorable, alternative pop. Never pretentious, never obtuse, never boring, just Draw Tippy.
