Local Artist Highlight: Andrew Sheppard

After the release of his album in 2018 see what’s in store for 2019
Andrew Sheppard

If you are looking for the perfect mix of Country and Rock & Roll then you have come to the right place. Last night I listened to Andrew’s album “Steady Your Aim” and was surprised by how enjoyable it was. People who aren’t typically a fan of the Country sound might have doubts, but Andrew has that aspect of Rock in his music plus his great writing skills to create a very beautiful album.

Getting to ask him some questions was definitely inspiring. Speaking of inspiring Andrew said this about his inspirations for music “What inspires me to make music is traveling and observing the world around me and telling the stories of what I see and how I respond to those moments. Death, life, struggles, trials and tribulations, and successes.”

Some artists that are Andrew’s favorites include John Prine, Creedence Clearwater Revival,
Rancid, Janis Joplin, Tom Petty, and Waylon Jennings. Quite an amazing list of artists to have to look up to! About these artists, in the music industry, he said, “The music industry is a funny
machine, but those are some greats to still manage to get through even though the industry tried screwing them over.”

Unfortunately, he will be moving to Nashville next week, so we probably won’t see him around
as often, but I’m sure he’ll come by and give us some good shows to check out! His goals for
this year are writing, touring more, getting into the licensing and publishing world, and yes start recording another album! If you’re looking forward to what’s to come from Andrew like the rest of us here at Go Out Local visit his website at https://andrewsheppardmusic.com/.
