Shuffle Aces: Har Mar Superstar – Lady You Shot Me
I wasn’t aware of the work of Har Mar Superstar until recently when I heard this track included in the Sklar Brothers podcast wrap of 2013’s best songs. There’s no doubt he’s an unusual character – with his Ron Jeremy looks and not quite slim physique, but I love the way this track captures an old school feel but with a really polished presentation. There’s a nice tip of his cap to James Brown in there too!
Har Mar Superstar is Sean Tillman, a 35 year old native of Minnesota. He’s dabbled in lots of different musical styles but mainly in the R&B and pop areas. He has a great stage show that has helped build his profile, and also performs them without much clothing on! He’s performed on many TV shows and has also developed a profile in the UK. Then there’s the podcasts he’s done with Earwold productions called Nocturnal Emotions. All in all, an interesting guy – but start with this song as it really is a cracker!
You can find all the Shuffle Ace tracks – although I’m afraid not this one as it’s not available on Spotify – on a Spotify playlist here.
Shuffle Aces is a series of posts that highlights a song of the week that “shuffling” has brought forth. With all the streaming services it’s not just an iPod on shuffle mode that we use to discover new stuff, but the principle remains the same: hit play and wait to see what gems come forth.
