The Shooting Of… is a One-Man-Pop-Machine from Newcastle.
The Shooting Of… – or Paul Jeans, as his mother knows him – has played relentlessly in the UK and Europe, sharing the stage with Goldheart Assembly, Sweet Baboo, Misty’s Big Adventure, Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six, Kate Nash, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and The View among others. He’s won over numerous festival audiences with his unique show and has sold out the likes of The Sage Gateshead. His music has been played on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and BBC 5 Live as well as numerous regional stations across the UK.
A self-confessed control-freak, energetic performer and purveyor of electro-acoustic pop, The Shooting Of…’s music has been likened to Arcade Fire, MGMT, Eels and David Bowie. An octopus of a performer – utilising drums, tambourine, keys, guitars, samplers and a copperphone microphone.
