We’re Moving To Nashville

We’re Moving To Nashville   Alright gang, It’s time that we let some serious cats out of some serious bags: in early January, The Shadowboxers are moving to Nashville, TN. Now don’t get teary eyed! We’ll only be four hours away, and between our shows, music friends and connections, and the food at La Fonda, we’ll be back all the …

Musings On Thriller

Musings On Thriller To say that our band spends a significant amount of its time trying to copy Michael Jackson’s Thriller would be quite accurate. There are two reasons why. First, the songs. Thriller is a pop music masterclass. Each song is a musical iceberg–on the surface sits deliciously effortless ear candy, but underneath lies a brilliantly crafted layering of …

Feeling Good, Feeling Great

We’re sorry we had to leave you hanging like that, but the dog days are over and now we’ve got some exciting stuff to tell you about! First and most importantly, ATLiens, we’re opening …

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes & Other Short Stories

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes & Other Short Stories One year ago, the three of us were driving though New Hampshire on the road with the Indigo Girls. We were listening to a lot of Crosby, Stills, and Nash at the time, and decided to record a version of us doing “Helplessly Hoping” when we got to the hotel later that …

She’s Always In My Hair

Awww shoot, You know that Shadowboxers vid you’ve always wanted but haven’t gotten? It’s very dark and gritty, maybe there’s some smoke and lasers, maybe there’s a section where the action seems to be in slow-motion yet the singer still sings in time, and there is a ton of distorted guitar and funny solo faces? Well it’s #covertuesday and we got about 50% of that stuff in the video for …

Not Going Backwards

Hola, After May The 4th Be With You and Cinco De Mayo, today is feeling a little somber. But it’s ok. Because it’s #covertuesday. Which is equally important, both culturally and historically. Here’s our take on Tame Impala’s, “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xP9GxOSAAoI We recorded this at Starstruck Studios in Nashville, TN which had only slightly nicer equipment …

All In Love Is Fair

Here’s our rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “All In Love Is Fair.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lj2d4VnCRU We recorded this with our good friend Brock Scott at The Goat Farm in …

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake Well, the last few months have been pretty damn exciting for us. The man himself somehow caught wind of our cover videos and has been voicing his support.  First, with our cover  of “Pusher Love Girl” he wrote this: And this past week, he tweeted again in response to our video of Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids.”   …

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Gang! Holy James Earl Jones saying “totes magotes” in a Sprint commercial, it’s 2014!!! (Whoda thunk it?!) We’re so excited to welcome the new year with open arms, because we’re pretty darn sure that it’s going to be an exciting one for us! But before we divulge our plans for what’s coming, we wanted to step back inside our log …

Queen Of California

Queen Of California Everyone who knows me, and probably some people who don’t, know that I’m a serious John Mayer fan. That guy has influenced my music and my life in more ways than I’m probably even willing to admit to myself. Point is, I have immense respect for his songwriting, his guitar playing, his career arc, and the way …
