Blind Shepherd is more of a musicians project than a band. We are writing, composing, recording and producing all original pieces. Most importantly we are learning more about what we are passionate about...music. We have no set genre and enjoy creating any style that will challenge us. Our goals are to increase our knowledge of music and the industry and to connect with others who share our passion.
James Ford has the most experience out of the three of us. He has been playing one instrument or another (guitar being primary) for over 25 years. He started out his education in the school band and has never stopped soaking up knowledge. He can play almost any instrument he picks up and has a deep understanding of music theory. He is the teacher of the group and is constantly passing on his knowledge of cord progressions and the like.
Ryan Couch plays a wide range of instruments as well. He began playing drums and then moved on to harmonica, piano, bass guitar and anything else he can get his hands on. He has also lead the way for us in the production of the audio as well as the video.
Connita Butler has been singing since she was 3 years old. She won't tell us how old she is but let's just say that's a long time to be singing. She also writes and composes many of the songs we are producing and upkeeps all of our social sites and has recently designed our web page, www.blindshepherdmusic.com.
This group is multifacited and very talented. They are music driven and continue to expand their knowledge and appreciation of it in all they do.
We hope you like what we have to offer! Much Love...Blind Shepherd.
