My name is Thom Shepherd and I'm a singer songwriter. I lived in Nashville for a long time and I am lucky enough to have had over 90 of my songs recorded by other artists. I moved to Texas last year to be a full-time touring artist myself. 

I started an album called "Simplify" and want to finish it up! The plan for this project is to complete the CD and then promote two singles at radio after it is complete. The songs I'll be recording are mostly ones that I've written since moving to Texas, and some duets with Coley McCabe.

The recording will take place in September 2012 at the Freeway Lounge Studios in Franklin, TN. 

Once the recording part is completed, I will be launching my next single to radio. A large part of the expense of this project is radio promotion, and my budget includes the cost to finish the recording, duplicate CDs, and the promotion of two radio singles.

Thanks in advance for your help!!!!
