Paint The Music
Paint The Music
“Paint The Music” (PTM) brings together local musicians and area painters for a showcase whereby the visual artist paints an entirely new work of art on stage with the singer-songwriter, using inspiration from the first song of the musician’s live set. The viewers’ energy becomes part of the art as audience members are encouraged to interact with the musicians and artists, becoming the third arm of a creative triad. The paintings can be purchased at the end of the night via a silent auction.
This will be the third PTM show in a series, which founder Dan Fisk hopes to take across the East coast. The evening will feature music from Dan Fisk, Ted Garber, Josh Burgess and more. Each painting process will be filmed and later time lapse edited to match the length of the song, creating a series of music videos.
The event will conclude with a 45-minute ‘Meet & Greet’ cocktail hour to give the audience the opportunity to interact one on one with the artists and musicians.
Dan Fisk
Dan Fisk
Versatile, award-winning singer-songwriter, Dan Fisk, brings a dynamic brand of acoustic rock to venues up-and-down the east coast. Voted as one of Washington, DC’s “Hottest 5” musicians in 2010 and featured in the DC Metromix primetime special on CBS (WUSA*9), he is quickly garnering regional acclaim. Drawing comparisons to fellow Virginia natives Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, and Pat McGee, Fisk’s ability to write memorable melodies coupled with his trademark percussive guitar-style is inspiring a loyal fan following. He has performed at events as diverse as New York’s Park Avenue Festival and has become a regular at leading local venues such as IOTA and Jammin Java.

Described as having a rhythmic, often chunky playing style, Fisk has spent more than a decade perfecting his sound. During solo performances he is able to showcase his guitar playing and vocal talents, letting the intricacies of his songwriting shine while infusing cover songs with his distinctive sound. The power of his performances can be heard with his full band on the 2008 album, Sight Lines, as well as his solo debut EP "Bruises From The Backseat".

As a full time musician, Fisk has worked hard at every aspect of being a “DIY” independent artist. He’s found it to be an inspiring challenge wearing many hats. Yes, he is the singer and the songwriter but finds the time, energy and talent to manage tasks from being the admin to acting as CEO of his own brand. Playing as many as 15 shows a month, his around the clock dedication to music shines through in every song.

Dan created Frame Your CD (www.frameyourcd.com), a company that caters to the independent musician, and is active with several DC area music networking groups, including Metro Music Source and DMV Musicians. His successful blog posts geared toward independent musicians have been featured on Grassrootsy and CD Baby. He also owns and operates a small studio where he records local bands, as well as his own music.

In June 2011, Fisk released "Bruises From The Backseat", his first solo EP, featuring the award winning song, “A Thousand Love Songs”. The album evocatively explores the timeless topic of love, lost and found, and includes creative collaborations with some of DC’s finest musicians; such as cellist Katie Chambers and local legend, Ted Garber.
Ted Garber
Ted Garber
Taking chances at every turn has helped form Ted Garber's signature style, which fuses his influences and cross pollinates genres (country, blues, reggae and rock). With a lyrical and melodic niche lying somewhere between Waits and Springsteen or Marley and Dylan, the guitar wielding, harmonica playing, beat-boxing Garber admits he's hard to classify, but he says that just makes his job all the more appealing.
Josh Burgess
Josh Burgess
What can I say. I write music for what binds us all. Everything. I've been doing this professionally for about 10 to 12 years, and I've played with all kinds of different people. Together we've played our music all over the world. From the Middle East to the Lower East Side, from Puerto Rico to Portland, from Chicago to Cairo, and in the words of Gary Smallwood, from Boston to Austin. I guess if I had to label it, I would call it Grass Roots Rock. But don't take my word, or any others for that matter. Listen to it yourself. Make up your own mind. That's what music is. I touches each of us in completely different ways. But, I degress. Currently the band pretty much is myself, with no formal training, on guitars, and vocals. Matt Everhart, who graduated from Iowa University with a degree in Upright Bassiology, on bass and vocals. And a mixture of drummers. Mr. Andy Hamburger, who's list of credits I'm sure would use up all the available space on my computer, and Tyler Buisch, who also sings like a bird. Well let's see, what else is there? We're all career musicians. Hacking it out in clubs, festivals, theaters, studios or whatever gig pays the bills this week. It's what we do. In a nutshell, we haven't been around long enough to have a really good bio, ie....tragedy, success, loss, ect.. Check back with us in about 10 years.

Kat Kronick
My painting is based in Reality - it is an intense straightforward effort to chase the moment, to catch the 'golden feather' of life's essence. No easel, no brush - just dancing paints. These few hours-long living experiences decode into geometry of colors, textures and shapes.
