All Wrapped Up in You

Was written whilst I was at the beach looking at all the people and couples. One jumped out at me, it was all sequins and the sun hit it and made me see auras around her. I wrote it as a ballad. When John Staten, my producer heard it, he added his funky groove to it and made it PoP!

Coming Back to Me

I was sitting in the recording studio mixing my first album 4Some. The children’s song “Ring Around the Rosie” popped into my head and the melody evolved into this song.

Confess

I wrote this in response to the seemingly endless and very disturbing loops of the torture video at Guantanamo. I don’t get violence… We wanted to add Daniel Jackson, Gilbert Castellanos and John’s percussion to give it more of a latin feel in honor of Cuban music.

Free My Mind

I wrote this blues song on guitar. I’ve been practicing yoga since I was 3 and so have been aware of the grace that follows emptying the mind of the “chitter chatter”.

I Miss You

Was also written on guitar. I love playing around with harmonics and so this song was created around their multi-dimensional vibrations.

Dependability

I came up with a little bass riff on the piano. When John and Joshua and Stevo got together they added the sexy intro and ending. Adding Glen McKinney to the mix took that sound to a deeper place.

Electrical Tension

Was written whilst I was on a walk. I kept repeating it over and over until I got home when I could finally write in down.

Here I Am

The guys added a deep groove and this funky sound was created.

  • “Confess”…the first things I realized were that I dug the groove and your voice…then I started listening to the lyrics…now you’re one on my favorite vocalists! I was laughing, muttering “Right on!” and totally enjoying the message, which made the track even more compelling than it already was. John D’Agostino critic/music editor of the SD Reader back in the ’80s and wrote a music column for the Los Angeles Times
  • “She has a very unique style which gives the listener something interesting to listen to and she has a knowledge of harmony. The harmony acts as a harmonic floor to support her personal creativity.” Daniel Jackson, Saxophonist

Because of this Sharon conceptualizes the entirety her song performances, not just her vocal parts. From the first ping of a ride cymbal in the introduction to the last sustain of a piano cluster after and ending vamp, it’s all Sharon’s vision. AND she sings her b*tt off!”

    Paul Carman, Saxophonist
