Paulo Baldi is an American rock drummer and percussionist from the San Francisco Bay Area. He is currently a member of Cake, Les Claypool's Fancy Band, Deadweight, The Faraway Brothers, and the Eric McFadden Experience.[1]

Since his first professional work with flamenco-jazz guitarist Ottmar Liebert, Paulo Baldi has worked with an eclectic variety of different artists and genres. Also well known for his ability as a hand-drummer, Baldi recently completed a tour of Egypt playing hand drums in a U.S. group, and has appeared with San Francisco world music band Ali Khan.[2]

Cake[edit]

In 2004, he drummed on two songs for the alternative rock band Cake, "No Phone" and "Carbon Monoxide," both of which appeared on the band's fifth studio album, Pressure Chief. Cake lacked a regular drummer for this album due to the departure of longtime drummer Todd Roper. After the release of Pressure Chief, Baldi joined Cake as a full member and drummed on their sixth album, Showroom of Compassion, released in 2011.
