Shepherd, one of South Africa's leading progressive Jazz pianists and composers of his generation, is fast gaining international recognition for his distinctive compositional style and performances and has performed on some of the world's finest concert stages at home in South Africa as well as internationally in countries like Belgium, China, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Switzerland and The Netherlands. Twenty-six-year-old Shepherd, whose first three albums, fineART, A Portrait of Home and South African History !X have received critical acclaim internationally, is set to release his first-ever solo piano album recorded in Japan, later this year. "Shepherd, a Cape Town native who will turn 26 this summer, plays piano with old-soul authority and composes rich, evocative music. He's very much grounded in the myriad and compelling sounds of his homeland, but there's a personal stamp on his art and an awareness of jazz beyond South Africa to it too. The latter adds dimension but never overtakes the music's beautiful and powerful sense of rootedness." -- Peter Hum, International Jazz blogger, Jazzblog.ca
