ShyBoy’s new single “Backroom” evokes dimly lit dance floors of a different kind. Described by The GATE as "timelessly fun" with vocals that are “slick, rich, and addictive,” “Backroom” was featured in the second season of the CW’s Dynasty reboot. The song’s accompanying music video (directed by Michael Bodie) features a cast of characters intertwined in a sultry, pansexual setting that celebrates the evolution of LGBTQ+ leather and kink subculture. The video was premiered by World of Wonder on their WOW Presents Plus streaming service and posted by the WOW Report, which described the video as a “gritty masterpiece."
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. ShyBoy has performed throughout North America and in Europe, sharing the stage with artists such as Amanda Palmer, Meiko, and Flo Rida.

"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
