Shareef Keyes is a touring musician from Brooklyn, NY.
In 2014, Keyes founded The Groove, an R&B/funk collective comprised of some of the finest emerging musicians in NYC. Four years later, Shareef Keyes & The Groove released their debut EP Cooking Something featuring the singles “Cupcake”, “Potato Salad”, and “Spaghetti” featuring Ghostface Killah.
Following the success of his heavy-hitting funk debut, Keyes released a follow-up EP titled My Mood, a minimalist exploration of the artist’s 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 his shows firsthand, it's safe to say that is just the beginning.
