Singer/pianist/composer Elizabeth Shepherd and nine-time JUNO Award nominee, guitarist/composer Michael Occhipinti have been featured in each other's projects for almost a decade, with Elizabeth being the vocalist and pianist for Michael Occhipinti's The Universe of John Lennon, and Michael touring as a member of Elizabeth's group promoting her last album The Signal.
More recently, the two have begun work on “The Longest Street In the World” celebrating Canada’s golden age of music on Toronto’s Yonge Street, where The Band, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, and Blood Sweat and Tears launched their careers and Oscar Peterson, Bruce Cockburn, and Charlie Parker recorded some of their most famous live work.
Michael Occhipinti’s guitar work has been called “miraculous” and paired with Elizabeth’s unique, cool and soulful delivery, the two have received a dozen JUNO nominations.
