6-string electric bassist Benjamin Shepherd was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand, where he began playing the drumset at age 5, bass guitar at age 7, and upright bass at age 13. Fresh out of high school, Benjamin recorded his debut album Double Play, which showcased his technical mastery of the bass as well as his compositional talents. Then, in 2008, Benjamin relocated to Los Angeles to attend the California Institute of the Arts, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in jazz studies. His mentors at CalArts included Alphonso Johnson, Charlie Haden, Larry Koonse, David Roitstein, Miroslav Tadic and Joe LaBarbera. During his junior year at CalArts, Benjamin auditioned successfully for American Idol contestant David Archuleta’s band and began touring Asia, performing in front of 20,000 to 60,000 fans every night. Prior to graduating from CalArts, Benjamin had also secured a gig as music director for former Tower of Power lead singer Ellis Hall.
