THE TIMES OF ISRAEL -- In keeping with the spirit of California folk singers who came before him, Pauker draws artistic inspiration from his surroundings, which also serve as his connection to the Creator and a means of grounding in himself.
His new album Ascension is billed as an “invitation to listen to the call of our inner wilderness and to greet our darkness with understanding and an open heart.”
He went on to study broadcast communications at San Francisco State University, where he worked at the college radio station. He also worked as a promoter, doing talent buying for clubs, and booking bands. At the time, he says, he was at a spiritual deficit and hated his work.
