Last month, Sheppard revealed that they’re moving to Nashville in October. “We are such proud Australians, so it’s very exciting for us to represent over in Nashville,” Amy Sheppard said in a press release.

She added, “It’s a big risk, but we feel the Sheppard sound and brand have evolved enough for us to make the move and commit a few years to this. We will definitely be coming back and forth, so our Australian audiences will still be seeing us!”

Meanwhile, Sneaky Sound System were recently added to Icehouse’s On The Steps Sydney Opera House Forecourt show alongside Karen Lee Andrews. The show is scheduled for Tuesday, 12 December.
