As Jeff Shepherd prepares to release his first self titled album, “Jeff Shepherd and The Jailhouse Poets” we invited him on the show to talk about the final track “Son”. This is a special interview for a couple reasons. First we have been eager to have Jeff on since we saw him 2 years ago at Moonrunner Music Festival. The second reason is because Jeff was kind enough to discuss this song, which was spawned from the loss of both of his parents. In the interview we discuss his career in music, his family, songwriting, and of course his favorite football team The Green Bay Packers (this was recorded prior to the Packers loss to Phoenix). We were honored to have Jeff tell the story behind this amazing song.
