amy shepard


Over the past ten years, fans have gotten to know Amy Sheppard as the bluehaired pop
powerhouse sharing international stages with her bandmates and siblings George and
Emma as the Brisbane trio behind the worldwide hit “Geronimo”, Sheppard.

This year, Amy embarks on an exciting new adventure as a solo country singer, embracing
change with the same vivaciousness and authenticity that has endeared her to so many as part of Sheppard.

Raised on country music when growing up in Papua New Guinea, Amy was finally inspired to start writing country songs after her first trip to the CMC Rocks Festival in Ipswich in 2019.

After recording in Nashville with awardwinning songwriter and producer, Lindsay Rimes
(Thomas Rhett, Kane Brown, Lee Kernaghan, The McClymonts, Kelsea Ballerini) and two years spent finessing the tracks during the pandemic, the project is finally ready to launch.

Combining Amy’s pop sensibility with subtle country arrangements and instrumentation such
as pedal steel and slide guitar, the new music also sees her experiment with storytelling
more than ever before. Eager to connect with fans new and old, Amy is primed for a solo
turn in the spotlight. The Sheppard story is far from over, but Amy’s new chapter is just beginning.

Claudia’s catchy melodies and honest lyrics have gathered her an international audience online.

In 2017 Claudia released her debut 6 song EP titled Fugitive, followed by country single Phantom in 2019, which was a step-up in production and musicianship, mastered in Nashville TN. Phantom charted on Triple J Unearthed at #2 on the overall chart and Pop chart. The country song set the tone for her future releases, and shown what Claudia is capable of as a country artist.

Shortly after returning from touring Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2020, Claudia released single “Attention” which peaked at number 12 in the Kix Country Radio Hottest 20, and was nominated for WAM Country Song of The Year 2021.

Claudia’s follow-up single “Too Far Gone” written and co-produced by Claudia has been described as the “Perfect blend of Nashville country songwriting and LA Pop Hooks”, peaking at #2 on the iTunes Charts on release day. Followed by a huge sold out launch show at the Civic Hotel, and gaining worldwide fans across streaming services and social media.

In 2022 Claudia performed onstage at the Perth RAC Arena for the nation wide televised event Telethon, followed up by supporting artists such as Tex Perkins, The Black Sorrows, Daryl Braithwaite, Rai Thistlethwayte (Thirsty Merc), Russell Morris, Jack Jones, Abbe May, Karise Eden and many more.

Claudia’s latest single I Only Miss You When I’m Drunk, produced by Michael Bono (Avril Lavigne, Blink 182) and mastered at Sterling Sounds (Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Rihanna, BTS) topped the iTunes Country chart and was streamed 100,000 times in its first month and gaining nationwide radio play.
