The Shooting Of Short Info

The Shooting Of…, aka Paul Jeans, is one man intent on raising his music above the din. A musical polymath, creating alternative pop vignettes with splashes of melancholy, The Shooting Of…’s sound is firmly rooted in experimental pop noir.

An engaging live act, having toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe, the self-released debut 7” This Silence Is Killing Me (August 2014) gained significant airplay from BBC 6 Music and regional stations, with B-side 1,000 Facebook Likes, a wry look at the trials and tribulations of creating music in a social media age, prompting commentary and interviews on BBC5 Live and in the press.

The Shooting Of…’s as yet untitled debut album is due for release in 2016.

"Bursting with ideas, a songwriter of exquisite ability, tone and range" NME

"Jaunty piano, toe-tapping beats and an exquisite voice: it's a welcome break from the traditional singer-songwriter fare. A definite one to watch - in every way." DROWNED IN SOUND

"A veritable musical octapus" Stephen Merchant - BBC 6 Music
