Nashville-by-way-of-Atlanta pop trio The Shadowboxers, who’ve been taken under the wing of Justin Timberlake, who signed them to his Villa 40 artist development company, have released their debut EP, Apollo. The six-song collection showcases the group’s harmony-driven, soul-infused sound, reflecting their love of D’Angelo, Michael Jackson, the Bee Gees and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Members Scott Tyler, Matt Lipkins and Adam Hoffman first began writing together while attending Emory University. Originally creating buzz with their YouTube cover of Timberlake’s “Pusher Live Girl,” the trio have since headlined national tour dates and currently find themselves opening Timberlake’s Man of the Woods Tour. The tour comes to Duluth’s Infinite Energy Arena on May 11th.
