The Shadowboxers - Not A Bad Thing (Justin Timberlake Cover)



This is a cover of Justin Timberlake's "Not A Bad Thing" from "The 20/20 Experience".  To be honest, this was my first experience with the track and I can honestly say, unless JT's version is mind blowing, I don't want it.  I had the opportunity to see The Shadowboxers as part of the Communion Tour with Johnny Stimson.  These Atlanta boys know how to build an amazing song, cover or not.  Their harmonies are inspired and their musicality is bar none.  They know exactly how to work with each other so that they aren't competing for lead at any point in time and they know what it means to be part of a team.  It's honestly incredibly refreshing to hear the cooperation in their vocals.  It makes for such a full song.

I'm going to be covering them a lot more because they are simply stellar.  For now, run out and grab their debut album, subscribe to their youtube channel and support them.  The more support they get, the more amazing recordings they'll bless us with and the world needs more of their art.
