Music

I'm a musician! I love writing music, recording music, producing music, playing music, listening to music... etc. While most people (I think) usually get into one or two aspects of music... recording, or playing in a band, or becomming a drumming machine, I seem to find myself getting involved in almost every aspect of music. Here are some of my current projects:

  • Syracuse: This is my current collaborative project. In February of 2010, we joined the RPM Challenge which is an organized event where you set out to write and record an album in a month. The results can be found by visiting my Listen/Download/Enjoy page via the link below. We are currently working on a 5 song EP that will be up at the LDE as soon as possible.
  • The Shep Shapard Project: This is my ongoing solo project where I write/record/produce all of my own music. You can find my album "Forever and Always" up at the Listen/Download/Enjoy page via the link below. I also have a seperate website for The Shep Shapard project here, but its pretty empty and out of date.

In the past I've been involved in a variety of other projects. Recordings from each of them can be found at the Listen/Download/Enjoy page, which is linked to below.

  • Sana Rouge: This was a collaborative project where I played bass and sang. We played a bunch of shows and released one EP (while I was part of the project).
  • The Callous Heals: This was a collaborative project where I played drums and sang back up vocals.
  • Faraday: This was my major project from 2004 to 2006. We played indie/pop/rock. In it I mostly played guitar and sang lead vocals.
  • This Boy's Trouble: This was my college indie/punk band from 2000 to 2003, where I played guitar and sang backup vocals.
