Shallou’s music is characterized by gorgeous production that wraps the listener in a warm blanket, while other times evoking strong emotions or an urge to dance. Born Joe Boston in Washington D.C., Shallou eventually resettled in LA. Though his live shows have taken on several iterations throughout his career, his abilities shine through, including live vocals, keys and DJing. Shallou has played major music festivals like Coachella and sold out some of the US’ most iconic venues. His debut ‘Magical Thinking’ saw him pair up with expert songwriters like Ashe and iconic pop voices like Daya. Once the pandemic began to subside, Shallou emerged with his follow up EP, ‘The Long Way Home.’ The EP features emotive dance tracks (“Heartaches,” “Here”) as well as cinematic indie songs (“Corners,” “Pacifica”) with writing assists from the likes of Elderbrook. In 2023, Shallou has taken on the ubiquitous house music genre, determined to leave his own stamp on it.
