Hailing from Yorkshire in the UK, Sharon started working professionally as a singer when she was 20, performing with a number of bands on the cabaret circuit and then moving onto working with original bands in more recent years.
Sharon has played at a wide range of live music venues and music festivals over the years and has always had a huge passion for music which has inspired her creativity. During this period of performing, Sharon developed her love of songwriting and after being encouraged by a friend and fellow songwriter who recognized her writing ability she began to record her own music.
Sharon says that her writing style comes from having very eclectic musical tastes and a love of a wide range of genres, although she admits is an 80s girl at heart. She was hugely influenced by the 80’s music scene and counts George Michael, Alison Moyet and the electronic sounds of the decade as some of her real musical loves. Her music is based on her own personal experiences and those of the people around her and feels that this is very much reflected in the songs that she writes. Love, life, and loss are featured very heavily in her writing and she feels this helps her audience to relate to her on both a personal and musical level.
Her first single “Breathe” was released on the 24th July 2017 and has been hugely successful, gaining her thousands of followers, giving her airplay across the globe and significantly raising her public and social media profiles. Her newest track is entitled “Blindsided” and was released on 20th November. Both tracks will be featured on her forthcoming album “Revelation” which is due for completion in the late Spring of 2018.
In recent months Sharon has obtained PR representation which has enabled her to reach a wider audience including being featured in the December issue of DNA magazine, being interviewed for local and online radio stations and developing an army of fans around the world
Sharon is spending as much time as she can in the studio, writing and recording and creating more wonderful songs to share with her ever-increasing fan base and will continue to work tirelessly to share her music with an ever-growing audience.
