Album Notes
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.


to write a review


Damn, that’s good shit!
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.

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


get this album for yourself. you deserve it!
This album makes me want to... drive around in the convertible I don't own and scream my head off. These songs are energetic , the lyrics are sometimes hilarious and sometimes touching, and the poppy excellence of the new wave beats makes me want to... get out of the convertible and hop around like an idiot. Summer is coming, people! You need this music in your life (and in your stereo).

Draw Tippy’s dexterity in manipulating and fusing genres surely demonstrates a maturity beyond his peers, and with solid melodies layered onto complex acoustics and digi-tech squeals and beeps, you’ll be hard pressed not to find at least one loveable song on the album.

With pleasant distortion and fiercely danceable bass lines, Draw Tippy gives just the right bit of urgent lunacy found in youth to pull a little hype and make songs go down glossy slick.

Jeff Cambron/SonicSlang.com

An impressive debut that manages the always-neat trick of sounding instantly familiar, but genuinely unique in its own quirky way.

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.


The music made me feel like bouncing in my chair.
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.

"California" is a pleasant little ditty that reminded me of Sugarplastic's campy "Polly Brown" but with Brian Wilson style vocals. "I, Robot" starts off like the Cars "Just What Needed" but ends up like Grandaddy lost in a synth shop.

Above all, I thought this was really good for a solo effort and suitably catchy for pogo-ing to. Does anybody remember pogo-ing at shows?

I can't get enough of it. Excellent. Highly Recommended!
The album as a musical whole expresses a deep fondness for the rock and pop of the 80's, but with a modernly realistic look at the trials and tribulations (and joys) of everyday life. 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. The lyrics are also surprisingly funny!

The highlight of the album for me, though was the closing cover of the opening credits song to "The Muppet Movie", "Rainbow Connection". I would have never imagined this song being covered in a high-energy punk fashion, but it works in a way I never would have suspected. It's a awesome totally new direction for the song, and I love it!

I can't get enough of it. Excellent. Highly Recommended, if nothing else check out the samples on the website.. I think you'll surprise yourself with how much this appeals to you!
