The Shadowboxers are an American pop band discovered by and signed to Justin Timberlake's Villa 40 artist development company. They are currently recording new music, including a new, unreleased song called “Timezone.” This is the inspiration for their upcoming dates across the country, coined The Timezone Tour.
The Nashville Scene describes The Shadowboxers as "a harmony-driven, funk-footed quintet, which combines elements of modern pop, '70s-style AM radio folk...and classic R&B." Founding members Scott Schwartz, Matt Lipkins and Adam Hoffman, have a passion for captivating lyrics, tight harmonies and soulful vocals. Together bassist Carlos Enamorado and drummer Cole McSween, they have forged a cohesive sound based on a shared reverence for the strong, taut harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, D'Angelo and The Beatles and the rhythmic pop funk of Prince, Michael Jackson and Earth, Wind & Fire.
Originally gaining online buzz from their YouTube cover of Timberlake’s Pusher Love Girl, the band is quickly building a loyal fan base. Their original demos have garnered over 3.3 million streams on Spotify to date with the most current single, Build the Beat, reaching #5 on the Spotify United States Viral 50 playlist and #10 on the Spotify Global Viral 50 playlist.
