Making hidden hits from his bedroom, Shawn Mathews is a 20-year-old college student you need to keep your eyes on. With a gorgeous fusion of R&B and pop, Mathews incorporates the most delectable synths that’ll have you swooning in no time. As we’re deep into cuffing season, Mathews expresses his longing for a lover in his playful new single, “Next To Me.”

“MY NEW SONG, ‘NEXT TO ME’ IS OUT NOW! PLEASE STREAM IT, I WILL LOVE YOU SO MUCH. Played the guitars and a bass guitar on this one myself again, and shout out to Mitch Bowers for playing the drums on the song!”
