Mini Mansions is a pop rock outfit formed by Queens of the Stone Age bassist, Michael Shuman. During a break between recording and touring with QOTSA, Shuman joined forces with friends and fellow musicians Zach Dawes (bass) and Tyler Parkford (guitar) to create a sound much more harmony-driven and pop-oriented than his main project. On the band's 2010 eponymous debut, Shuman took the reigns on many of the instruments, including drums and keyboards, proving that the music he's making with Mini Mansions is something he's wanted to create for some time now. The band's sound has been described as both heavily-influenced by the Beatles and more modern artists, such as Elliott Smith and Fountains of Wayne.
