Album Notes
"Paul Minor spends his working hours perfecting the sound of countless Austin bands. So it's no wonder when he does get around to his own project that it's ripe with balance and sensibility. Shadow Figure is Minor's first recording in three years; its songs, at first pleasant and rolling, become infectious and joyful with a few listens. Cuts like "Raincoat Song" and "Three on a Match" give a sneaking suspicion that George Harrison is his favorite Beatle. Minor proves genius at delicate pop songs. His vocal versatility (high and sweet, gravely soul, and Dylan-wheezy) reestablishes the lead in lead singer, allowing his band to fall perfectly behind the particular path Minor chooses. His influences are often hard to pin, drawing from four decades of pop, with the exception of two very Dylan-sounding tunes. In fact, "My Beautiful Child," with Elana James (formerly of Hot Club of Cowtown and, more recently Dylan's touring band) on fiddle, seems to come straight from the Desire sessions. Recorded by Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson, Ray Price, The Small Stars), whose piano and melodica play as key a role as Minor's guitar and harmonica, Shadow Figure is a testament that "Self-Released" allows room for the highest quality in production and sound." -- Dante Dominick, Austin Music Magazine
