Shallou - "Count On (feat. Colin)"
Shallou is a singular producer/artist that performs live as a duo, touring with many similar artists such as Petit Biscuit, Honne, Blackbird Blackbird, Roosevelt, Basecamp, El Ten Eleven, and Big Gigantic.
Professionally known as stage name Shallou, Joe Boston is a Los Angeles based producer, singer, and environmentalist, who produces ambient, house melodies and soulful vocals that have carved a niche in the Indie and Electronic music scenes. His debut EP, All Becomes Okay, was released in May 2017, followed by EP Souls in April 2018, both through his own label, Sleeptalker.
Boston grew up in Washington, DC, with a family of intense music lovers. His dad was all about music discovery, playing Radiohead and Wilco to him when he was a kid. He was first inspired by singer James Blake and producer Gold Panda when he was around 16, combining elements of those artists into his own sound. After attending college at Loyola University New Orleans, he moved to Chicago to continue producing music, but currently resides in Los Angeles.
His dreamy, ethereal sound helps transport the listener on a journey through the universe, but also through their own psyche. I can imagine this playing both at the beach and at a daytime rave. Just sun-drenched and happy, and holding hands.
So today, with good things on the horizon, I choose Shallou’s "Count On (feat. Colin)" as my, step into the conversation, hold on to what is good, accept the beauty that is given, song for a, flowers on your doorstep, arm around your shoulders, laughter all the way, Wednesday.
