Poolside is the recording project of producer, songwriter and multi- instrumentalist Jeffrey Paradise. In 2011 Poolside set out to produce appropriately chill music for summer soirees, a light but danceable kind of music with sunny vibes and liquid rhythm that Paradise dubbed "Daytime Disco." Since then, Poolside has released four acclaimed albums – Pacific Standard Time (2012), Heat (2017), Low Season (2020) and this year’s Blame It All On Love (2023) – remixed countless high-profile acts such as Billy Idol, Jack Johnson & Milky Chance, DRAMA, Miami Horror, L'impératrice, Purple Disco Machine, Big Wild, Zoe and more. Poolside has also recently collaborated with Todd Edwards, NEIL FRANCES, Brijean, Foster The People and Buscabulla. Poolside’s fourth studio album 'Blame It All On Love' finds singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and visionary Jeffrey Paradise leading the shallows and entering the depths of his own creative voice. Its 11 tracks are funky, soulful, laidback and full of hooks that elevate Poolside’s sound to poignant pop heights. The album’s many collaborators — Vansire, Panama, slenderbodies, MUNYA, Ora The Molecule, Ben Browning, Life On Planets & Mazy — bring both breadth and depth, pushing Poolside’s sound in new directions that stay true to Paradise’s taste and sensibilities. Onstage, Poolside bring their signature ‘daytime disco’ sound to nnew heights as a formidable 5-piece ensemble comprised of accomplished veteran players who have left indelible marks on indie rock and electronic music over the course of the last two decades. Poolside has toured performing with artists such as Kacey Musgraves, Earth, Wind & Fire, LCD Soundsystem, and Tycho and appearing at major music festivals including Coachella, Primavera, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Corona Capital. The live band combines the raw power of rock ‘n roll with the nonstop groove of disco and dance music.
