A little more about The Shadowboxers:

Discovered by Justin Timberlake and signed to his Villa 40 artist development company, American pop band THE SHADOWBOXERS are poised to be this year’s biggest breakout act with their R&B-soaked mix of soul and pop.
Founding members Scott Tyler, Matt Lipkins, and Adam Hoffman experienced an almost-instantaneous musical compatibility when they first started writing together. They've 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. This young band's unified sound has an R&B-soaked, smart perspective replete with an abundance of vocal talent and songwriting skill. In the short time they've been playing together, The Shadowboxers have found a collective voice that is intelligent, soulful, and catchy.
Originally creating buzz with their YouTube cover of Timberlake’s Pusher Love Girl, the threesome have since garnered over 3.4 million streams on Spotify to date and growing. Spending time writing in the studio with both Timberlake and Israeli songwriter/producer K-Kov, The Shadowboxers have released their newest single, HOT DAMN!, Executive Produced by Timberlake, in September 2017.
