Logan Ellis Sheppard is an 18 yr old L.A. based drummer, percussionist, and producer who has been playing drums since the age of six, and performing professionally since the age of twelve. Logan has played with artists such as Paul Reed Smith, Bunny Brunel (Chick Corea), George Lynch (Dokken), Alex Sill (Simon Phillips’ Protocol), Travis Carlton and Bruce Kulick (KISS), and has shared the stage with acts like Phantogram and Olivia O’Brien.
Logan has toured throughout the US, performing at Eric Clapton‘s Crossroads, SXSW, the Dallas International Guitar Festival and on the final Vans Warped tour. He’s as comfortable working in the studio as he is on stage, whether creating reimagined drum covers, or recording an original album at 15 years old with iconic producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins).
Though well-versed in a wide variety of playing styles, Logan’s adoration of jazz, fusion and progressive rock styles drives him to rise to the level of drumming’s most elite players, while developing a sound that is uniquely his own. He is skilled in Ableton and Logic production, as well as in the use of tracks, triggers and electronic drums. Additionally, Logan possesses perfect pitch; an ability that allows unique support of and communication with singers, bandmates and producers.
Logan is an active peer mentor, a FREE2LUV anti-bullying advocate, and a vocal advocate for children and young adults on the autism spectrum. He proudly endorses Paiste Cymbals and plays DW Drums.
