Biography

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 song writing and after being encouraged by a friend and fellow songwriter who recognised 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'smusic 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, relationships and overcoming challenges are featured very heavily in her writing and she feels this helps her audience to relate to her music but also allows develops the ability for them to understand and engage with her personally.

Her first single "Breathe" released in July 2017 was followed by "Blindsided" later that year and both were hugely successful, gaining her thousands of followers, giving her airplay across the globe and significantly raising her public and social media profiles. Her releases of "One Night" and Demons" became prominent in nightclub dance and chill out sets of a number of prominent DJs across the world and she is rapidly growing in popularity.

She has just completed her long awaited debut album entitled "Revelation" which features all of these fabulous tracks and a host of new material that her increasing number of followers will love. There is a focus on what a friend has called "bangers and ballads" which gives a nod to the dance element of the album but also Sharon's diversity and ability to deliver powerful and emotional heart-felt songs.

Through PR representation, Sharon has reached a wider audience through podcasts, radio interviews and personal appearances and has had a full page feature in DNA magazine.

2020 is going to be an amazing year for Sharon and which will see her gaining further acclaim enabling her to further cultivate her growing army of fans around the world.
