What had you first interested in music?
We are planning to tour most of this year! We hope to make it back over to the USA, maybe New Zealand and definitely some charity shows in PNG. We will also be flying over to Bangkok to play the festival “Sonic Bang” with some big name artists.
What are some of your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?
Our biggest goal is to have a lasting career in music! We want our fans to continue to have access to our songs and live performances.
What can fans expect from you in the coming months?
A ton of shows, new music and more fun! We are also lucky enough to be featured in a Hollywood slasher called “Old 37”. We are the band in the party scene and they are using 4 of our tracks! It will be released later this year!
Which stars of the music industry do you find inspiring?
Stevie Nicks, Chris Martin, Gotye, John Mayer! All the greats, musicians who have really pushed the boundaries and become legends for it.
How would you best describe you and your music to your fans?
It’s a bit like a beach party! I think growing up in PNG had an influence on us. Apparently we have “pacific harmonies”. We just want to incorporate a sense of fun with music which is genuine.
What can you tell us about your latest album?Are there any new exciting projects in the works?
Our latest release was our debut, self titled EP. The songs on the EP have a common theme of “Picking yourself up and dusting yourself off”. The songs often have somber lyrics which are contrasted with energetic, fun music. We are hoping to release another EP in the latter half of the year with some fresh hits! We hope to do another video clip or two as well!
The music industry is huge, where do you see yourself a few years from now?
We would be so grateful to have a lasting career in performing. In a few years we plan to have a solid fan base in Australia and overseas. We hope to continue writing and performing around the world, reppin’ Australia all the way!
Name a few of your favourite Aussie artists.
We are so lucky in Australia to have some incredible artists! Aussies know their music! Some of Sheppard’s favourites include: Birds of Tokyo, Lisa Mitchell, The Temper Trap, Gotye, Tame impala .All the good stuff!
