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 and loss are featured very heavily in her writing and she feels this helps her audience to relate to her on both a personal musical level. Her first single “Breathe” was released on the 24th July 2017 and has been hugely successful
