Things are looking up and up for Shamir, the North Las Vegas-based singer-songwriter who graced the cover of Vegas Seven’s Intriguing People issue in January (Read it at VegasSeven.com/intriguing-people-2015). He pretty much owned South by Southwest (“…Like Sylvester fronting LCD Soundsystem,” enthused Imran Ahmed in The Guardian). His 2014 hit “On the Regular” is being used in an Android watch ad. And just last month, he received a sure sign of bigger things to come: a massive billboard in the heart of Times Square. Shamir’s latest single, “Call It Off,” is out now (complete with a bizarre and kinda wonderful puppet video), and his debut album Ratchet drops this May.
