Vonda Shepard is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She appeared as a regular in the television show Ally McBeal, as a resident performer in the bar where the show's characters drank after work. In 1998 she had a hit with the shows theme tune and soundtrack "Searchin' My Soul". Vonda has sold over twelve million albums, has won two Golden Globes, two Emmy Awards and two Screen Actor’s Guild awards. She also holds the Billboard prize for selling the most T.V. soundtracks in history.

She began playing piano at age six, took voice lessons, dance and acting for many years, and has been playing clubs since the age of fourteen. At the age of 24, she released her major label debut in 1989, titled Vonda Shepard. Don’t Cry Ilene was a hit on V.H.1 and made it to top 11 in the A.C. charts. In 1986, Vonda made it to #6 on the pop charts with the duet, Can’t We Try, with Dan Hill. In 1991, Vonda released The Radical Light on Warner/Reprise, which had the original version of Searchin’ My Soul, the theme song for Ally McBeal. Indie life followed, with It’s Good, Eve — Vonda’s most critically acclaimed album, to date, about which Chris Willman from Entertainment Weekly wrote; “the singer/songwriter genre doesn’t get any better than this.”

As music producer for Ally McBeal, Vonda produced over 500 songs, for artists like Al Green, Sting, Randy Newman, Robert Downey Jr. Jon Bon Jovi, Gladys Knight, Chubby Checker, Barry Manilow and many more, including the amazing cast. When musical guests would appear, Shepard was the “behind the scenes” producer of the music, reading the scripts and interpreting David Kelley’s message, through the emotion of music. Four Ally McBeal albums accompanied the five year run, including a Christmas album.

  • Has three sisters: Rosetta, Luana, and Brianna.
  • Daughter of 'Richmond Shepard' (qv).
  • Gave birth to son Jack Froom on April 15, 2006.
  • Her mother left the family when Vonda was ten, and her father raised the four girls by himself.
  • Went to high school with 'Wallace Wolodarsky' (qv), then known as Marc Wallace.
