Shareef Keyes & The Groove
Self-produced contemporary R&B/funk artist Shareef Keyes with a flair for spellbinding melody and infectious live performances. From his recording studio in Downtown Brooklyn, NY, Keyes draws inspiration from the likes of Janelle Monáe, James Brown and Raphael Saadiq to produce rhythms that get us out of our seats and on to the floor.
Together with his band The Groove, Keyes tapped Ghostface Killah to release "Spaghetti Fettuccini", a single from his 2018 debut album, Cooking Something. In late 2018, ShareefKeyes & the Groove released a follow-up EP titled 'My Mood', a stripped-down exploration of Keyes' contemporary R&B influences. 'My Mood' was universally well-received, propelling Keyes to a regional U.S. tour and earning him spotlight from notable corporate partners. "Spreading happiness through funk music" is Keyes' humble mission statement. For those who have experienced the fervor of The Groove firsthand, it's safe to say that is only the beginning.
