Bio

Just Shy lives based on a philosophy first laid out by P!nk in 2003: God is a DJ, life is a dancefloor, love is the rhythm, and you - yes, you - are the music. Electronic pop music specifically, in this case.

Hailing from Melbourne, Just Shy has been highlighted by the likes of EQ Music as a strong “tunesmith and melody maker…an engaging storyteller," and has been compared by to Pet Shop Boys and Robyn by Pilerats. Definitely a bit of a reach, but we’ll take it!

Just Shy's music is synth-driven, thoughtful electronic pop. He's achieved over 70,000 streams to date, plus radio support from the likes of JOY 94.9, The Record Doctor on The Pulse FM, 2RRR, 5GTR, 2VOX, Tribe FM and 3PFM.

it's some layered, tender pop that will have you grooving.
