David Liebe Hart Band
Los Angeles, CA
Though not a household name, musician, artist, puppeteer, and actor David Liebe Hart has been a cult personality in for decades. In 1988, he followed the guidance of his Sunday School teacher Jim Henson and began producing The Junior Christian Science Bible Lesson Program on public access television. Eventually the show caught the eye of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, who cast Liebe Hart to sing his bizarre songs on their hit Cartoon Network show, Tim and Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job!. David's positive, stream of consciousness songs focus on the topics most important to him; beautiful women, famous actors, and his sincere belief in UFO's.
Since being “discovered" by Tim and Eric in 2006, David Liebe Hart has performed to sell-out crowds with the comedians, worked with John C. Reilly and Jonah Hill, and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In 2010, he formed a punk band with his frequent collaborator Adam Papagan. During the past year, they have performed at CMJ, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and SXSW, and shared the stage with The Thermals, Lemuria, Shonen Knife, Thee Oh Sees, Born of Osiris, Jacuzzi Boys, and many others. David has taken the recognition he's found so late in life in stride. When asked to describe his music, Liebe Hart responds simply, “Peace, love, and punk rock".
