Paledave is based out of Ypsilanti, MI, just outside of Detroit. The band started in 2003 as a solo venture featuring singer/songwriter Dave Buehrer. Dave has played guitar and provided vocals for a number of cover and original bands, as well as acoustic acts, since the late 80s. Dave's influences range from singer/songwriters, to punk, to classic rock, and even 70s pop. He loves a "catchy - yet rockin'" song, which explains why he lists songwriters like Paul Westerberg, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Neil Young, and The Jayhawks as some of his influences. The band's sound has been compared to Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, and The Wallflowers.

Paledave live includes energetic, yet relaxed, acoustic shows, as well as full rockin’ band performances. The shows benefit from the warm harmonies and steady percussion of Jenny Fair, and acoustic shows often include hand drums and/or bass from one of “the Jons.” As for full band performances, Jon Carmona lays down a solid bass foundation, while adding his own style and swagger with some “extra C.” John Churchville holds the foundation together with his energetic drumming and “shut up and play” attitude. Guest keyboardists, Joe Neely and John Goodell (another of the Jons) are featured on new recordings and perform at many Paledave shows. That’s Joe you hear on trumpet.

In music festivals, clubs, and coffee houses their shows have been enjoyed throughout the upper midwest.

Paledave released their 2nd album, "One Good Leg," in June, 2008. On the new album, they have broadened their range of musical styles and instrumentation providing an exciting new sound for their fan base. The first CD, titled “Find What You Love,” was released in 2004, and continues to receive airplay on Ann Arbor’s 107.1 FM. Songs are being downloaded at over 50 websites including iTunes and Rhapsody.
