Acclaimed pop singer/producer Dan Vidmar, a.k.a. Shy Girls, will
release a new album, Bird on the Wing, in Spring of 2019.
The album contains a palpable sense of Vidmar’s evolution towards the carefree, a newfound buoyancy and optimism which pervades the whole effort. The album is an enticing and uplifting mixture of lo-fi soul, nerdy jam outs, minimalist grooves and a whole lot of chimes. It pulls from a far-reaching and unexpected array of influences, with elements of Jaco and Weather Report, dusty Dilla-esque drums, and noodling Garcia guitar solos.
The timeless warmth of Vidmar’s vocals are, as always, at the heart of things. Once again the album was self-produced by Vidmar at his home studio, and he also played and recorded the majority of its instrumentation, relying heavily this time around on a Casio CZ5000 and a fretless bass.
Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are $17-$20.
