About Chris Shepard

Roanoke, VA

Love Letters from the Press

“Very cool 'n' loopy, heavy and NYC-ish... Like BOC in a lot of ways.
Martin Popoff – Author, Sr. Editor of Brave Worlds & Bloody Knuckles,
Contributor to Guitar World & Goldmine

“Good in that weird, twisted, college boy kind of style
…it seems like you have a good thing going. Keep it up.”
- Albert Bouchard – Blue Oyster Cult, The Brain Surgeons

“Chris Shepard is the mind behind this rocking and sarcastic band that delivers songs about hippies, skinning dogs, smoking crack and working a 9-5. …Comparable in nature to the context of Ween, Zappa, Beck and Primus, expect to be entertained by a solid album of some
comical songs and sounds.
(JC) -"Impact Press

“Shepard's lyrics have a way of sticking in your head. "I Just Flat Out Can’t Stop Smoking Crack" stuck in my for days, in fact.”
Mason Adams – Inside Out

“Each original song is a litany of raw nerves and haggard emotions”
Chris Henson – The Roanoke Times

“Shepard Wows Audience with Unique Style”
-Aaron Richardson – The Prowler

“’Sin & Tonic’” is a masterpiece of clever songwriting and shape-shifting grooves.”
Ezra Waller –
