Citizen Shade is comprised of North Carolina natives Will Howard and David Lezcano. Longtime friends and classically trained musicians, the duo's fresh take on modern pop has quickly captured a vast audience around the glove.  

With a unique, smokey tone and remarkable range, Will's vocals have drawn comparison to the soul of John Legend and the conviction of Adele - distinguishing him as one of the best up-and-coming vocalists.


This is one band you should definitely check out. I’m excited for what the future holds for them in their music career. Who knows, but it will be awesome to say you’ve been with them since the beginning!

Phenomenal tone and I can tell he is physically imagining and feeling every single note, crescendo, decrescendo, and falsetto. One of my favorite voices on the planet! Waiting for you to blow up...SO good and SO underrated! 

Any one  who said wearing shades makes  you cooler was probably right. Citizen Shade is a band that is cooler than you, the lead singer has just the right kind of huskiness in his voices to make your heart melt. The channel although new is already getting attention and the group has covered a wide range of songs from Rihana’s work to frank Sinatra. (This band is my personal favorite)
