Vioulet is the musical and visual art feelings of Matthew Shepherd (aka Vioulet).
Through layers of loops, synthesizer sounds, vocals, and beats the psychedelic-experimental-pop tracks act as portals to strange lands. An exploration of divinity, love, connection, fear, and humanity through a kaleidoscope lens, Vioulet is the celebration and exploration of being.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Vioulet currently lives in Portland, OR. They are a queer, half-Japanese artist that loves exploring art, music, and the mountains.
Vioulet has written, recorded, and produced all their own music and plans to release a full album in the next year. On the horizon is the release of two zero-budget music videos, the culmination of artistic vision with help from their sister, Naomi Shepherd.
Over the next few months, Vioulet will be releasing a few more singles and lining up shows in the Pacific Northwest.
—I’ve been working my butt off on all this and though there’s only a few things here now, I’m just getting started. Can’t wait to share with you all that I’ve been working on. <3 Vioulet—
