Growing up in a musical family, Isaac Shepard began playing piano/keyboards by ear at the age of twelve and very soon thereafter joined the band his father, James, was singing and playing guitar in at the time. As a member of “Dave and the Reverbs,” Isaac played keyboards at various soup kitchens, homeless shelters, social gatherings, church events, and random venues throughout Southern California.
Within a few years, Isaac’s family (father James, mother Debra, and brother Elijah) joined together to form a family band they named “Four Shepards and a Lamb,” and in 1996 they produced a self-titled CD of original contemporary Christian music. In 1998, Isaac released his first solo album, “On Subtle Ground,” featuring original keyboard instrumentals. Over the years, Isaac has played piano for numerous church worship teams and has continued to collaborate with James, adding piano to the rock “Moment By Moment” CD and to the Beatles/Everly Brothers love-songs tribute album called “From Me To You.”
In 2005, Isaac produced his first live piano album, “Swept Away,” a collection of relaxing compositions. Isaac released his second solo piano album, called “Deep Joy,” in 2008; it reached #1 on the iTunes New Age charts. In late 2009, he released his third solo piano album, “The Renewing”, which made it to the #4 spot on the international radio airplay chart two months in a row. In 2010, Isaac released his fourth neo-classical piano album, “Awaken”. Most recently, Isaac published “Knights and Damsels”, his fifth solo piano CD.
Isaac enjoys composing music across diverse genres, including classical, jazz, pop, rock, techno, electronica, and trance. His music and orchestrations can also be found in several games, including Air Patriots, Lucky’s Escape, IMDb Trivia, Matches & Matrimony: A Pride and Prejudice Tale, Simplz: Zoo, Airport Mania: First Flight, Airport Mania 2: Wild Trips, Build in Time, Music Catch, and others. Much of Isaac’s unpublished music can be heard on the “Miscellaneous Music” page.
