“Geronimo” was successfully broken by SiriusXM’s Hits1, AltNation, and The Pulse in North America, which in turn led to an add from Los Angeles’s legendary Alternative KROQ. What’s more, iHeartMedia has selected Sheppard for their premier artist development program, “On The Verge.”
Last fall, Sheppard made their North American television debut when they performed“Geronimo” on Ellen. Now, they’ve booked a slate of TV appearances for 2015 beginning February 9 on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, March 10 on The Today Show, and March 13 on LIVE! with Kelly & Michael. Tastemakers have also lauded them across the board. Both Entertainment Weekly and USA Today dubbed SHEPPARD an “On The Verge Artist” for 2015.
February 11 sees the band hit the road supporting multi-platinum superstar Meghan Trainor on her sold out “That Bass” tour.
