Sibling rivalry can go one of two ways; it can either be paralyzing or it can be a catalyst to greatness. For indie pop Brisbane band Sheppard, it was a rivalry that sparked the formation of a group like no other. Born from a strong family foundation; George, Amy and Emma Sheppard perform with a desire to artistically and creatively express their take on the world and to engage the youth that live within it. The family holds a strong bond to Papua New Guinea, where Amy and George grew up. It was after relocating to Australia that the three siblings began discovering their unique musical talent and ability to play a variety of musical instruments. It wasn’t long until the family discovered the talents of Sydney musician/songwriter Jason Bovino. Jay was quickly recruited as a valuable member of the songwriting team and then the group soon grew to a gang of six when they saw great potential in musicians Michael Butler and Jared Tredley both from Brisbane.
Sheppard have amassed a concrete international following and are constantly developing their local presence, infiltrating the music scene with their alternative indie pop sound and youthful vulnerability. To date they have written and produced over 30 tracks, and continue to impress audiences with an ongoing supply of new material. Sheppard. Six big kids in one creative family, bound by the love they have for music.
Sheppard will have a cameo performance and three songs on the soundtrack of the upcoming feature horror film OLD 37 starring Brandi Cyrus and Kane Hodder. The film will be shot in New York in August.
