J. Drew Sheard II


Star of BET series The Sheards, J. Drew Sheard II is following in his family's musical legacy — but he's doing it his own way. The Detroit native was the first and youngest producer signed to Pharrell's Star Trak imprint. As the son of Karen Clark Sheard, one quarter of the legendary Clark Sisters gospel group, it is not surprising that he has produced songs in the gospel genre, including for his sister Kierra Sheard. Yet his commitment to mixing genres guarantees that he will be making hits for a range of musical artists in the future.
