About Shy Girls:
Straightforward, seductive and sincere, Shy Girls producer and vocalist Dan Vidmar creates with an unabashed pop proclivity. The irresistible sensualism in his songwriting calls out with certain clarity, a soulfulness distinct unto itself. The immediacy of Vidmar's croon turns listeners towards a captivating empathy. Bedroom eyes shine dewily upon these tracks, carrying melting melodies through perfectly minimal compositions, as undertones of New Jack Swing carry a punch that sways with each hook right on target.
Working days at an emergency room, Vidmar returns to his loft in Portland's inner Eastside industrial district to craft his sultry pop-R&B into the mystical pre-dawn hours. As much as Vidmar is part of a growing R&B resurgence, he stands apart from the herd of "avant-R&B" artists thanks to his crystal clear production. The tenderness of his art is never submerged in the muck and mire of dissonance, making for a refreshing and universally alluring listen. Vidmar's swoon-worthy voice is already in demand for vocal features: He partnered with producer extraordinaire Cyril Hahn on the blissed-out dance jam "Perfect Form", and has lent his vocal prowess to a track on the forthcoming album of Chicago's cosmonaut house duo Supreme Cuts. As well, he has already seen online love and praise for his six-minute seduction "Under Attack" (which features a gourd-blowing celestial sax solo from tUnE-yArDs' Noah Bernstein) and its far out remix by The-Drum. The first proper Shy Girls release, an EP of devastating slow jams and woozy club cuts entitled Timeshare, is out now.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
