Bowery Boston presents


with Romes

Sheppard is a Brisbane (Australia)-based indie-pop band. Originally formed in 2009 as a duo consisting of siblings Amy and George Sheppard, they expanded by adding Jay Bovino in April 2011 before reaching their current six-member state, including the third Sheppard sibling Emma.
They have released two singles to date and one extended play under their own label entitled Empire of Song. Their second single "Geronimo" spent three weeks at number one, knocking Pharrell Williams' single "Happy" from the top spot after its 12-week run.
"Geronimo" was accredited platinum by ARIA in April 2014. "Geronimo" is the first #1 single to be recorded in Brisbane.

Tucked away in Kensington Market, Downtown Toronto’s most culturally diverse neighborhood, ROMES converted the basement of their semi-detached red-brick into their full time rehearsal space. For the past year, the band relentlessly spent their waking hours there, exploring their eclectic tastes in music and ultimately writing the tracks for their debut EP "Believe".

ROMES have harnessed their pop sensibilities into an alternative sound that is completely their own. With soulful melodies and bright, funky guitar riffs playing off gritty synths, the tracks are instant, high-energy, anthemic ear candy. These larger-than-life tunes, backboned by thumping, hip-hop rhythms and disco-inspired bass-lines, put a modern twist on the group’s early musical inspirations.
