Philip Sheppard

Sundance Film: Legion of Brothers


Philip Sheppard is a virtuoso cellist, composer, producer and creative thinker. Philip’s talent for bridging musical genres, media and industries has led to rather interesting collaborations. He’s worked with David Bowie, Alexander McQueen, Jeff Buckley, UNKLE, Pretty Lights, The Weeknd and Queens of the Stone Age. He has composed & produced new stage works for actress Juliette Binoche, dancers Sylvie Guillem and Akram Khan, and virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie. He has scored more than 30 films including In the Shadow of the Moon, winner of the Sundance Audience Award, and Love, Marilyn starring Uma Thurman and Glenn Close. You could even hear his cello in space thanks to Astronaut Cady Coleman. Indeed, continuing the space theme, his music was recently used by JJ Abrams and Disney to promote Star Wars VII, the Force Awakens.
