Enchanting jazz vocalist extraordinaire returns to her native Ohio by way of Virginia with sizzlin' style for a not-to-miss BLU debut!
Youngstown native, Sharon Rae North, has graced the stages of major festivals, theaters and small, & intimate venues across the country. While she loves them all, her preference is to have the audience up close and personal as she enchants them. She’s known for jazz, whether it’s standards, smooth and contemporary. But, don’t be surprised if you hear a little Top 40 or R&B mixed in…seasoned to perfection with Sharon’s jazzy flavor.
In July, Sharon is releasing her next project, Sincerely Yours. The first single, a cover of Sting’s ‘Sister Moon’ drops in late June. She was fortunate enough to have a couple of heavy hitters work with her on the project. Fred Sawyers, a prolific songwriter and vocalist (Isaac Hayes, Will Downing, etc.) penned the lyrics and did the vocal arrangements. Chris “Big Dog” Davis wrote and arranged the music. Davis also produces Maysa, Phil Perry, Gerald Albright, Will Downing, Najee, Alex Bugnon and many others.
Vocal versatility, range, phrasing, and the ability to connect to an audience make each performance memorable, leaving Sharon’s audience eagerly awaiting another chance to catch her live. Don’t miss your chance to hear her as she makes her Ohio homecoming in a very special summertime BLU debut – get your tickets today!
