Soundgarden's Ben Shepherd Announces Solo Album
Posted Thursday, June 27th 2013 @ 7am

Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd will release his first solo album, In Deep Owl, on August 27.  The album began as a simple project back in 2009.  It was supposed to be an acoustic guitar thing.

Then, Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron and former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain came on board.

So, Ben Shepherd plugged in.

The results can be heard in the first song from the album, Baron Robber.  It will remind you of a dirty version of a Soundgarden song with Shepherd singing instead of Chris Cornell.  Don't forget that Shepherd almost became Nirvana's second guitarist and he's co-written several Soundgarden songs.

Give it a listen.
