"Shy Girls is our wet bedroom R&B-pop dream - a perfect sound that reminds us of the era of the likes of Prince and MJ. D. Vidmar’s vocal is clear as spring water, add a production to that with shimmering synths shining through a smooth icy production and you’ve got pure bliss." - Disco Naivete

Biography

Shy Girls is an R&B experience out of Portland, Ore. Producer and vocalist Dan Vidmar came to Portland several years ago by way of Pennsylvania, taking a loft apartment in the city's inner Eastside industrial district. Working a day job at an emergency room, he'd return to the loft and craft his sultry, seductive pop R&B into the mystical pre-dawn hours. In late 2011, the "Sex and the City EP" surfaced on BandCamp: a four song collection remarkable for its irresistible grooves, clean production, and the immediacy with which its creator's soulful vocal crooning turns listeners into empathizers. The source of the project's soul is satisfyingly difficult to pin down - Vidmar pulls unabashedly from a wide range of pop influences. We find the bedroom eyes of late '90s boy bands shining dewily upon these tracks, with a New Jack Swing vibe giving them attitude and grit. Vidmar's genuine warmth and exceptional showmanship has him poised for great things. Expect the first proper Shy Girls release in fall of 2013, a new EP of devastating slow jams and woozy club cuts. Vidmar also served as guest vocalist on a collaboration with producer extraordinaire Cyril Hahn called "The Perfect Form", to be released as a single in fall 2013.
