Pictures of Ben Shepard

His family moved to Texas, then settled in Bainbridge Island, Washington, where Shepherd grew up, playing in numerous punk-rock bands with friends before he was a teenager. He first auditioned for the role of bassist in Soundgarden in 1989, immediately after Hiro Yamamoto left, but was turned down because he could not play the songs well enough. During the lengthy hiatus, Shepherd found time to complete the tracks that would become The 2nd between his collaborations with Wellwater Conspiracy (another side-project with Matt Cameron and John McBain) and several other artists. in 1994, Soundgarden released Superunknown, which featured Shepherd compositions “Half” and “Head Down”. Later that year, and into 2011, Ben played and plays with Soundgarden again as their bassist. in 1999, he played bass on Mark Lanegan’s album I’ll Take Care of You. in a February 2011 interview, Kim Thayil stated Ben Shepherd recorded a solo album that was never released. It started out as an acoustic project, before morphing into a very electrified concept album in the end.
