In 1975 L.A. native Pal Shazar was illustrating by day and working at the Troubadour club by night as the box office girl. Pittsburgh native Jules Shear was performing regularly at the Troubadour when not on the road with his band 'The Funky Kings.' Soon Pal would join musical forces with Andrew Chinich, becoming the lead singer/lyricist with their duo 'Slow Children' which Jules would co-produce. Jules and his band 'Jules & The Polar Bears' recorded three albums for Columbia Records and 'Slow Children' recorded two remarkable records for RCA produced by Jules and fellow Polar Bear Stephen Hague. Recording took Jules and Pal to London, the Bahamas, and eventually to Woodstock where the couple made their home. After the demise of ‘Jules & The Polar Bears', Jules went on to write and record 13 solo records plus had his songs recorded by many including Cyndi Lauper (All Through The Night) and The Bangles (If She Knew What She Wants).   After seven great years in 'Slow Children' Pal began to write on her own, releasing 8 solo records. They adopted dogs. They tried other cool towns, moving across the states with dogs in tow. No place felt as good as Woodstock. Never in all their years of writing and recording did they consider making a record together. Till now. ps. Jules and Pal enjoyed making their first record so much that their recording story continued. They have recorded a new EP.  The release is set for July 2014.
