About the Artist

Dave Solo was born in the midst of the baby boom, growing up in a sprawling suburban California landscape similar to those portrayed in the shows he watched on his family’s black-and-white TV. He listened to his six-transistor radio late at night and heard Wolfman Jack playing haunting Delta blues and driving, forbidden “race music.” He looked up into the smoggy evening sky and saw Sputnik, the first artificial satellite of Earth, orbit out of reach while beeping arcane Cyrillic codes, scaring the shit out of everyone in America.
