Lily James Boyfriend Plays In Two Groups
Shuman is a busy person because he knows how to keep himself occupied. In 2007, he joined the band Queens of the Stone Age as the bass guitarist. The group’s origins can be traced back to the late ’90s, and it has since welcomed a rotating cast of artists. Shuman plays the bass and sings, but that’s not the only band he’s in.
Shuman, Zach Dawes, and Tyler Parkford, who have been called “a trio of partners in crime, best pals, and brothers in all but blood,” formed Mini Mansions in 2009. The most current of the band’s four albums, released in 2019, belongs to the contemporary rock genre.
Lily James Boyfriend Is A Grammy Nominee
According to their Grammy Awards page, Queens of the Stone Age has been nominated seven times. Four of these nominations have been associated with Shuman: best hard rock performance in 2008, best rock performance in 2014, and best rock album in 2018.
This 2018 EP By Mini Mansion Was Inspired By His Failed Engagement And Split
Little Mansions’ 2018 EP, which evolved into the band’s fourth album, has a different feel than their earlier rock albums.
As Shuman put it in a 2018 interview with Coup de Main, the process of writing songs is “organic” and “very cathartic.” Since Shuman had recently ended a relationship that had resulted to an engagement, it was this romantic experience that served as the primary inspiration for the EP.
‘I think it should be all spring from actual things that are happening in your life and true experiences,’ Shuman told the site of songwriting. “I went through a relationship that started out with high highs and finished with terrible lows,” the artist explains, “and that’s what all the new music ended up being about, for the most part.”
Later, he elaborated, “Because we’re on the topic of opening up, I’ll share that I once fell in love with a girl, got engaged, and was ready to start a new chapter in my life. When something like that occurs, it prompts you to reflect on your priorities and the ways in which you’d like to spend your time. That shifted me profoundly and… encouraged me to write, not just lyrics but music as well.”

Lily James Boyfriend Scored The 2017 Film Feed
Tommy Bertelsen, who directed Feed in 2017, asked his buddy and composer, Shuman, to work on the film’s soundtrack. Pretty Little Liars’ Troian Bellisario, a high school classmate of Shuman’s, wrote, produced, and oversaw the entire project.
When I was welcomed on board, it was like joining a family,” Shuman said to Coup de Main in 2017.
Before Shuman realised it, he was responsible for creating the entire soundtrack for the picture, not just the score. That was unexpected; he had planned only to do a score.
A continuation from Shuman: “Really, I don’t think many individuals engage in this practise. Never before have I heard of a soundtrack in which the composer also performed the music. I’m no trailblazer, but making a record was a lot of work—and a lot of fun.”
