About Rich Pagano
As co-founder of The Fab Faux, Rich is one of the busiest musicians in NY. He’s kept equally busy running his production studio – New Calcutta Recordings NYC, and developing new talent. His co-production and performing on the latest Willie Nile release, “Beautiful Wreck of the World”, earned him Top 10 Album of the Year honors in both Billboard Magazine and The Village Voice. He is probably best known for the group Marry Me Jane, and has also recorded or performed with Patti Smith, Robbie Robertson, Rosanne Cash, Ray Davies, Freedy Johnston, Joan Osborne, and Mott the Hoople legend Ian Hunter. Rich quickly realized the overflowing musical talents within the band, and is currently producing an album of original music from The Fab Faux to be released in the future.
