ShyBoy’s new single “Backroom” synthesizes pulsating beats with alluring vocals, evoking dimly lit dance floors of a different kind. The song’s cinematic, 80s-inspired rhythms are filtered seamlessly through a contemporary post-disco lens, making it a perfect fit for its inclusion in Season 2 of the CW’s Dynasty reboot.
Named Best Solo Artist in the 10th Annual LA Weekly Best of L.A. Readers' Choice Awards, ShyBoy is a vocalist, songwriter, producer, and DJ whose music has been featured in RuPaul’s Drag Race, America’s Next Top Model, Sex And The City, The Devil May Cry 4, the trailer for Halloween 2018, and more.

"If Nick Drake, Alan Parsons Project, and M83 spawned a child raised on a healthy diet of Prince, Alfred Hitchcock, and classic science fiction films, it would be something resembling ShyBoy. He makes a bold, tuneful impression on today’s indie-pop landscape." - HuffPost
"Versatility as admirable as it is wonderfully dramatic." - Buzzbands
"A cross-pollination of RJD2, DJ Shadow and ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’ ShyBoy’s soulful vocals are irresistible." - Monterey Weekly
