Sheppard features siblings Amy, George and Emma Sheppard along with friends Jay Bovino, Michael Butler and Dean Gordon, together creating a unique mix of party atmosphere and good-time melody that is taking Australia by storm.
2012 saw the band on the road both at home and in the UK, USA, The Phillipines, South Africa, and even India where they played the NH7 Weekend festival in Pune, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.
Sheppard’s hit single, Let Me Down Easy debuted in the Australian top 50, becoming one of the biggest independent hits on Australian radio this decade, with adds across the Nova and Austereo networks. This follows on from the radio success story of the band in the USA, where they’ve had over 750 spins on commercial radio and cracking the top 100 on the CMJ charts. On their most recent US tour they sold out Crystal Ballroom (1500cap) in Portland, where the song was #1 most requested on Portland’s KNRK 94.7.
Sheppard have a series of local Australian shows from April to June, including a single tour for Let Me Down Easy and a Rock The Schools before they plan to once again grace overseas shores in the second half of 2013.
