One-Trick Phony is me, David Blanchard. I write all the songs and play all the instruments.
I was in the bands Likewise from 2001-2004 and Camera Shy Paparazzi from 2002-2005. Then I stopped making music for 15 years.
In April of 2020, I decided to make the most of my time during quarantine and started recording again. It was my Wilhelm scream into the darkness.
I released my debut solo album as One-Trick Phony, Everything is Terrible and Nothing Matters, six months later in October 2020.
My fourth album, More, was released in June of 2021.
V (a.k.a. DENIHILISM) was released in October of 2021 thereby completing the goal of releasing five albums within one year.
On April Fools Day of 2022, I announced that I would be releasing one new cover song each week until I ran out of inspiration or got bored, whatever came first. These cover songs were specifically covers of pop songs by female artists we've all heard a million times and who have voices I could never hold a candle to, but the intention was to reimagine these songs and cover them in a way that they sound new again. This cover series, lovingly called "Hits X Misses," wrapped 15 weeks later. A playlist of all the songs compiled together is available here.
There's more to come. Like, so much more.
And, yes. That's a threat.
