Craig Shepard

Log-in to Favorite

Craig Shepard makes music related to stillness, often outdoors. Listening to his music is like listening to the sound of snow falling. Recent projects include On Foot: Brooklyn, a 91-day, 780-mile trek and Trumpet City, an out-door live installation with masses of trumpets.

His music has been praised for its " dreamlike melancholy" (Steve Smith, New York Times), and called "a wonderful meditation" (Richard Pinnell, The Watchful Ear).

Shepard developed a love for walking and a passion for performing outdoors while living in Switzerland, where he realized the first On Foot project, crossing the 250 mile northern border of the country in 31 days.
