My name is Dan Sheppard. I am an experienced musician, songwriter, performer, sound engineer and producer. I have played in many different musical projects since my teenage years and recently graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan with a BA (Hons) in Music Production & Technology. I currently live in Wirksworth and work for The Fishpond in Matlock Bath as a music promoter, graphic designer and marketing co-ordinator.
Since moving here from Cardiff, I have only really performed acoustically and I am itching to get a band together again!

My taste is hugely eclectic. I am influenced by many, many things. Some of those things aren't even music.
I'm a huge fan of contrast. Quiet/loud, pretty/horrific, modern/old. I live music that changes, flows and progresses. I can get bored pretty easily while listening to an album, for instance, if it doesn't vary in tone, dynamics, genre etc.

National Jazz Hands Championships
National Jazz Hands Championships Track number: 3 Year: 2014 Album: City Circus EP Genre: Progressive
A song I wrote and performed with my band City Circus in Cardiff. On the recording I played everything except for the drums and I mixed and mastered it at my home studio.
Capital Track number: 1 Year: 2014 Genre: World
This is a piece I composed and recorded for a uni assignment where the subject was Cardiff. I chose to focus on the multiculturalism and eclecticism that makes Cardiff such an interesting place.
Bloodstone Track number: 1 Year: 2014 Genre: Electronic
This is an experiment of mine. I took one of those speech programs and recorded it "speaking" some lines. I turned it into a melody using Melodyne and wrote some retrofuturistic dance rock stuff to go with it!
