David is departing to tour across Europe with his solo project, Papa M, playing songs from his record Live From a Shark Tank (Drag City).

“My kids don’t really like when I sing for some reason…but they like when I play guitar. So I started writing songs just playing guitar for them.” — David Pajo on Growing Good
