The song, produced by Juan Belmonte and co-written with Mr. Shy and American writer/ lyricist Candance Moore, is destined to be an instant classic. It's ear candy to true soul and funk music lovers -- and pure pop!
Mr. Shy is a soul/pop singer, songwriter and performer... and a true original. A native of New York City, he began honing his craft at an early age. With influences ranging from The Beatles to Marvin Gaye to Prince, his own singing, writing, and performing has steadily evolved into a mature, distinctive sound, landing him squarely in a class of his own.
The former frontman of New Soul Orchestra, Mr.Shy debuted his solo album, "Super Star", on New Soul Records. It's an album of carefully crafted pop songs with an R&B/ Urban edge. Guided by a soulful and passionate voice, Super Star delivers thoughtful, straightforward lyrics of love, sewn together with infectious hooks and harmonies.
In early 2011, Mr. Shy released "Remixed", a stunning remix compilation on vinyl, pressing up a special run of just 1,000 copies distributed exclusively to club and radio DJ's worldwide.
In 2008, the acclaimed album "Olivia Valere's Night & Chill", from 3-time Grammy winning producer Juan Belmonte, featured a stunning, 60's-pop recreation of Mr. Shy's "Super Star". "Crossed the Atlantic" was also in rotation on Novoe Radio, Russia's #1 radio station in America. Sims 2 video of Super Star (Juan Belmonte Remix) was made "featured video" on the official Sims 2 website.
Now Juan Belmonte (former remixer of Cher, Santana, TLC) produces the highly- anticipated pop/funk single, "So Inside My League", their latest collaboration.
The song -- nearly a year in the making -- is a labor of love and pays homage to the classic sounds of Kool & The Gang, Shalamar, Quincy Jones and many more. The message is positive, and Mr. Shy's layered vocals remind us of what a soul singer can do, given the right song.
Destined to be an instant classic, "So Inside My League" is ear candy to true soul and funk music lovers -- and pure pop.
