I need some advice on how to avoid the harsh shadows

I have two soft boxes, a snoot, and my key light. I have tried to position my lights behind the backdrop, to the side (behind my subject) and further away from the backdrop, unfortunately I am still getting the harsh shadows. I am wanting to either get a soft shadow or no shadow at all (preferably none). Is there anyone on RB that can offer some advice or suggestions to help me out? As of this point I do not have a light meter to help me determine the amount of light on my background or my main subject.
Please, I need help.
Thank you!!
