The Atlanta-based Shadowboxers have a passion for captivating lyrics, tight harmonies, and soulful vocals. Founding members Scott Schwartz, Matt Lipkins, and Adam Hoffman (who met as freshman at their alma mater, Emory University) experienced an almost-instantaneous musical compatibility when they first started jamming. Together with drummer Jaron Pearlman and bassist Ben Williams, they’ve forged a cohesive sound based on a shared reverence for the strong, taut harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, D’Angelo, and The Beatles. 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 the quintet has been playing together, The Shadowboxers have found a collective voice that is intelligent, soulful, and catchy. The band has performed at sold out Atlanta area clubs and at venues and festivals throughout the southeast. In 2011, they released an eponymous EP produced by Shawn Grove (Sevendust, Collective Soul), Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra) and the band, which is available now. This spring the band is headlining club dates on their own and on a co-bill with Larkin Poe and are supporting Amy Ray on her solo tour in May. This summer, they will open for the Indigo Girls and be their backing band on a comprehensive tour across the country. They have also toured the East Coast with Matthew Sweet and opened for Ben Folds in March.

The band traveled to Shreveport, LA in March to record their first full-length album at Blade Studios. The album is produced by Brady Blade (drummer extraordinaire who has toured with Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews and Buddy Miller) and engineered by Chris Bell (U2, Erykah Badu, Destiny’s Child and Earth, Wind & Fire).
