New Release - He and She
ShyBoy co-wrote his new single “He and She” with legendary hit songwriter Allee Willis. The pair collaborated with producers Jeff Hoeppner and Mark Nubar to create a record that makes a powerful statement on individuality, sexual orientation, and gender identity. This 80s-influenced track features joyful synth-pop flourishes and playfully catchy vocal hooks that come together to lead the listener through the doors, corridors, and windows of self discovery and expression.
New release - Can't Stay With The Pay
With an electro-pop landscape that swirls with percolating synths and melodic vocals, ShyBoy's "Can't Stay With the Pay (Ain't No Little Fairy Gonna Pop Me a Five for That Tooth)" features lyrics co-written with the Emmy, Grammy, & Tony winning award-winning and nominated songwriter Allee Willis (Earth, Wind, & Fire, Pet Shop Boys, ‘The Color Purple’).
"ShyBoy has teamed up with Allee Willis to craft an entirely new, indie-pop version of the classic single with ShyBoy’s understated tenor lilting over delicate, synth-driven grooves. It’s almost hard to believe that this song, which famously featured The Pointer Sisters' full-bodied, mighty stampede of sound could ever be described as 'delicate' or 'understated,' but in ShyBoy’s hands, it is. Produced by ShyBoy with Willis, Jeff Hoeppner, & Mark Nubar, we’re digging this fresh, new 'Neutron Dance.'" -HuffPost
"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. The enigmatic recording artist, whose Water On Mars, makes a bold, tuneful impression on today’s indie-pop landscape, and one of the year’s smartest, not-to-be-missed debuts." -HuffPost
