Chief Engineer/Project Coordinator
Born and raised in San Francisco, Gabriel Shepard has been a music lover all his life. When he was 8 years old he opened up a favorite cassette that had broken, and performed his first splice with scissors and masking tape. There was no turning back; he was hooked. With piles of tapes with songs recorded off the radio still sitting in his closet 15 years later, he decided to go to school to learn the art of recording at the California Recording Institute.
For the past 12 years he’s been an engineer at the historic Hyde Street Studios where he earned a platinum and gold record with the band Cake. Other artists include Mark Kozelek, OK Go, and Joanna Newsome. Gabriel joined the About Records team a little over a year ago and now is part of the Trove Music team as chief engineer and project coordinator.
