Singer/Songwriter: JAMES SHEPARD
I was born when I was very young, I've grown up a little since then. After seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, I knew what I wanted to be...a host of a variety show...no, a rock and roll singer.
I began playing guitar, singing and writing songs in 1964. My musical mentors were the likes of Lennon/McCartney, Nilsson, James Taylor, Neil Young, The Everly Brothers, Simon and Garfunkel and Christian icons, Phil Keaggy, Malcolm and Alwyn , Keith Green and others.
I write in various styles and genres from Rockabilly, Gospel, Worship, Folk, Singer/Songwriter, Oldies, Blues, Country and others. I also do many recordings of cover songs.
About eight years ago, I began marketing my music to film and t.v. productions. I have had many songs placed in t.v. shows around the globe, including several songs inthe hit drama in England, "The Bridge".a feature documentary "Taylor's Gift" to be released soon, A feature film, "Angel Camouflaged" starring James Brolin and a cover of the Beatles, "All My Loving" used in a Toyota t.v. commercial in Europe. Recently, one of my blues originals, "Bumble Bee Flat Blues", was placed in the feature documentary "I Ain't Scared Of You", A Tribute To Bernie Mac".
You can listen to few of my songs here and hundreds of other songs are available for licensing. Would love to hear from you!

I am always looking for new venues to market my music and songs.
