Biography

TL;DR: I am Sheppo. Long time songwriter and producer, constantly creating, proudly handcrafting the hits from my log cabin right here in Raleigh, NC.
...
Areas of specialty are:
- Thoughtful songwriting for acoustic and rock.
- Hook writing and singing for rock, hip hop and dance genres
- Digital production in hip hop and dance genres
...
Long form version for all you exploratory types: (hire me) ->
My life has been steeped in music since I was but a small Shep. Now I am a very BIG (6’7”) Shep with something like 300,000+ lifetime plays under various names, over 400 tracks written/recorded/produced, 12(13?) albums, and a smallish (but growing!!) international fan base.
...
I’m an extremely special musician with the rare gift of prolific songwriting and production in multiple genres. Unfortunately, I’ve got a very annoying case of tinnitus in both ears which is why my fellow musicians never see me around at live shows. Sorry guys! I love your tunes but I hate your loud noises. ;) My ear condition keeps me from rocking live shows for the most part, so I greatly appreciate the fabulous peoples who listen to my music on their own time and stream me live when I decide to play to the internet.
...
Folks say (jokingly or otherwise) that I write the music of my generation. I’m not really sure what to make of that because it’s kind of like your mom telling you that you’re handsome. Can you really trust it? Who knows. Maybe you’ll feel this same way too one day. I bring a very thoughtful approach to songwriting that draws inspiration from the beautiful moments that (for the most part) escape us during our day to day. Barring the occasional cynical moment that my status as a millennial allows me, I write to put myself back inside that magic moment. Hopefully my music takes you there too!
...
As a major life goal, I’m interested in leaving things better than I found them. It is a true delight when my music is able to do my good work for me. My life is music and my life is beautiful, and I try to make other lives beautiful too through my work. I hope you’ll join me on my journey!
...
The best way that you can support my work is to share the love with a friend. As strange as it may seem, I’m not out to make my livelihood as a musician - that’s what I’ve got a business for,(hellobeaumonde.com, check me out!). If my music can be a charity to the world and show people the sunny side of things then I’ll consider my work well done.
...
Cheers and all the best.
Your pal,
Sheppo
