The best kept secret in music

What happens when you combine an accomplished vocalist with some of the Mid-Atlantic area's most talented musicians? The result, the MICHAEL SHEPPARD GROUP, a powerful, poignant and poised band singing and playing their way into the hearts and heads of many.

Lead singer Michael Sheppard (formerly of EGYPT and Y NOT) has a multi-dimensional voice that covers a wide array of emotions. On the band's debut release Beneath It All (Milesh Records), Sheppard is at the wheel taking us on a journey of soulful ballads to pop/rock to jazz/funk compositions.
It is easy to picture this band playing in many settings. Could probably get a crowd of 5,000+ dancing. The urge to sing along with Sheppard is almost unbearable!

Already established as a touring band throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, their name is sure to spread as more people are introduced to their music. - Brad Shafran


All together, the sheer honesty and vigor of Sheppard and the goliath musicianship that his staff possesses, there is no doubt that MSG is ready to show the nation what they are capable of. With a resume that puts a lot of national acts to shame, the Michael Sheppard Group will have no problem accomplishing mass recognition bringing back an old school style of finely balanced corporate rock musicianship and a new style of modern rock emotion. MSG are definitely worth keeping an eye out for. - Rick Smith, The Pitch


“...an aggressive musician who achieves maximum potential...generating
a sensational vibe that aurally caresses the masses...”
- Paul Manna

Feeling a bit camera shy


“POWER-ACOUSTIC MODERN-ALTERNA-ROCK...” writes one reviewer!

In early 1996, after growing increasingly frustrated with focusing on projects showcasing the music of other talented musicians, an outlet for Michael’s high-energy, no-holds-barred originals was needed. The resulting critically acclaimed team drives home his unique brand of original rock. Blending styles and influences from Matchbox Twenty to King's X, and Dave Matthews to Seal!! “I love mixing rock, funk, and pop influences with acoustic and electric guitars, strong vocals, and a kick ass rhythm section.”

In 1997 they released their first album, Beneath It All. This gutsy Milesh Records debut attracted national product endorsements and garnered impressive reviews and airplay on a variety of regional radio as they played the Mid-Atlantic extensively to support the release. In the spring of 2002, Milesh Records released the much anticipated second album, Ghost Of A Chance. They continue a steady schedule throughout their territory as CD sales and club attendance grows at consistent rates.

Taking his music to new levels, while earning rave reviews from fans and critics is nothing new to Michael and his group of seasoned professionals. He has earned several prestigious industry awards including 5 WAMMIE AWARDS ™ for Best Male Vocalist and Best Artist/Group in the Rock/Pop, and Alternative Categories from the Washington Area Music Association; several Mid-Atlantic Readers’ Poll Awards, and 3 Mid-Atlantic Songwriter’s Awards.

Shared stage credits include Tony Levin, Tina Turner, Pat McGee Band, Steve Morse Band, Hootie & the Blowfish, Salt-N-Pepa, Seven Mary Three, King's X, Todd Rundgren, Creed, Summer Camp, Primus, and Rick Ocasek.

“…a Lenny Kravitz’s sense of groove and style, the artistry of Peter Gabriel, and the intensity and power of Live…” while impossible to pigeon-hole into any one category, his show is, according to critics, “not to be missed!”

A passionate collaboration of heart, soul, mind, and musical integrity.
