The Australian indie-pop band behind the hit song "Geronimo" - Sheppard - is ready to rock with their Filipino fans at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall on August 11!
We know that you're all excited and can't wait for them to arrive so we caught up with Emma Sheppard via email! You might recall from our MYXclusive interview with the entire band in Singapore last year, her siblings Amy and George actually had their first gig in the Philipines back in 2010 when they were just a duo! Check out what Emma had to say about their upcoming visit to Manila below:
Hi guys! It's been a while since we last had an interview with you in Singapore last year! What have you been up to lately?
We have been touring non-stop since we were in Singapore. We attended the ARIAs straight after our trip to Singapore and have been on two massive tours this year! Some of the highlights have been winning an ARIA award, performing on "Ellen" and Jimmy Fallon, and touring around the States with Meghan Trainor.
We want to congratulate you for winning Best Group at the 2014 ARIA Music Awards! How did that feel?
It feels great to have won Best Group Award at the ARIAs 2014. It is such a big award in the Australian music industry and we are truly honored. We were even honored to just perform on the night with some other great Australian acts.
Your song “Geronimo” has brought you all across the globe! How do you guys feel about the international success of this song?
It is a dream come true. We are so excited that the world is getting to hear our music and we can't wait to release some more.
Your US TV debut was on "Ellen"! Can you tell us more about that experience?
That day is still a blur to us. We can't believe we performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, it was just surreal. She is so big all over the world and to be able to perform on one of the biggest daytime television shows in the world was amazing. She also came and watched our soundcheck on the day and introduced herself to us, she is pretty cool.
This August, you will be coming to the Philippines for a show! How does it feel to finally perform in front of your Filipino fans who are all excited to see you?
One of the first memories the band has is from Manila, so we are very excited to be able to come back and perform for our fans. We heard the show is going to be epic, so we can’t wait!
What can they expect from your show?
They can expect an exciting, fun and energetic show!
What’s your message for all your fans here in the Philippines?
Thank you for all of your support, especially the ones that have been there from the start! We will see you very soon x
It's going to be an awesome jam session! So put your hands up and get ready to say (and sing out loud) "Geronimo!" with Sheppard on August 11!
