Abstract Artimus - (2015) The City Arrives

Abstract Artimus is an American music composer and performer from the deep South currently living in New York City. He was born Artimus Alexander Pace, June 21st, 1983, in Jacksonville, Florida. At the time of his birth, his father was the drummer for the Jimmie Van Zant Band. After quitting the band, his father moved the family back to his home town of Mobile, Alabama. Much of Artimus's early life consisted of going to his father's rock shows as well as local and national concerts. As Artimus grew older, he formed several locally successful bands and played live on the gulf coast between Jacksonville and New Orleans frequently. Over the summer of 2006 Artimus devised what would become the first incarnation of Abstract Artimus. Their first show was as a supporting act for Gwar. Several successful shows were played and an EP was recorded, but after the other members quit to pursue other endeavors Artimus had to devise a new plan. He went on to write and perform as a one man band with random musicians joining him over the years. After the releases of numerous albums he continues to tour extensively as well as frequent the local dives of NYC.
