5 things you didn’t know about…The Shadowboxers

Wednesday 22 June 2016
Words Spindle

Nashville-by-way-of-Atlanta soul pop band The Shadowboxers are probably better known (until now!) as  the band that Justin Timberlake came across on YouTube as they covered his track ‘Pusher Love Girl’. Timberlake subsequently signed the trio to his artist/development production company Villa 40. To quote the great Timberlake; “Every once in a while, you come across something… This is GREAT, fellas. Took it and made it your own. I’m humbled.”

So without further ado, we discover 5 things you didn’t know about The Shadowboxers…

 

1. Not everyone knows that Matt, not unlike the Mona Lisa, is always watching you.

3. Adam and Scott can’t stand being in too close proximity to one another. Although they do it at every show, it makes both of them immensely uncomfortable. They have never addressed this issue.

4. Sometimes, it’s way too easy for us.
