Over the last weekend, Australian Indie Pop act Sheppard was part of short-form content platform TikTok’s monthly live streamed show, TikTok Music Night, bringing together artists from all across Asia, — and in this case worldwide.

As part of  TikTok Music Night Asia #ChillVibes edition, the stellar line-up included renowned acts including Sheppard (Australia), James Arthur (UK), JP Saxe (Canada), lullaboy (Singapore & Indonesia), Ffion (Singapore), NIve (Korea), Paul Pablo (Philippines) and Vu Thao My (Vietnam), to name a few. Their task – performing stripped-down performances for their fans to be more connected with their favourite artists, and in turn allowing new audiences to discover new music from different countries. 

Breaking out of Brisbane, Australia, Sheppard is a Pop Powerhouse Group behind the global hit, ‘Geronimo‘, which went double platinum in the US and Platinum / Gold in 18 other countries, reaching #53 on Billboard Hot 100 with over 371 million streams. The single propelled Sheppard siblings George, Amy and Emma, and their debut album, ‘Bombs Away‘ onto festival stages worldwide and closed off 2014 with an ARIA for Best Group.

Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Sheppard has been working hard  releasing a track each month since December 2020 in line with their fourth anticipated album, Kaleidoscope Eyes, Their hit single, ‘Die Young‘ has already gained over 35 million streams.
