Jules Shear On His New Album “Slower,” Life In Woodstock During COVID-19 & More

Jules Shear first made people take notice on a global level in the early 1980s as a major label recording artist. Ultimately, as “an artist’s artist,” his songs would go on to be recorded by Cyndi Lauper, The Bangles, Matthew Sweet, Til Tuesday and The Cars’ Elliot Easton by the end of the 1980s. All the while, Shear has never stopped creating as a solo artist, collaborator or a band member.

His latest full-length album is 2020’s Slower, as released on November 13th via Funzalo Records. Its first single was “Smart,” which had been released in October to radio and digital outlets. Much in the vein of his previous effort One More Crooked Dance, Slower was recorded at producer Lee Danziger’s home studio in Woodstock, New York. A long-time staple of Woodstock, Shear recorded 1983’s Watch Dog in that same upstate New York area with Todd Rundgren in the producer’s chair.

On December 13, 2020, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jules Shear via Zoom, as embedded below. More on Shear and Slower can be found online via www.julesshearshow.com, www.facebook.com/JulesShear and www.funzalorecords.com/jules-shear.
