After wooing Aussie audiences with critically acclaimed performances at the Caloundra Music Festival, The Mitchell Creek Rock & Blues Festival and many more, she embarked on her 2013 mini tour of Australia which was a mega success. Her latest single ‘One Time’ recently soared the Triple J Unearthed charts to #34 and it’s safe to say, after only a few short years in Australia, Sharon is making some serious waves in the Aussie music scene.
Sharon’s professional music career began at the age of 16 working as a back vocalist with the popular Caribbean bands Spice & Company and John King & Jegna. With these groups she gained the experiences of working with acts like Beres Hammond, Machael Montano, The Mighty Sparrow and more.
In 98, “Brooksie” as she is affectionately known, moved to Toronto, & immediately began work as a lead vocalist with “Collective Selective” a Jazz, group led by Henry Heillig. She also began work as a session singer, recording commercials and vocals for other artists. This led to her fronting an R&B cover band “Motor City” which eventually took her to living and working in Beijing, China. Her life in China inspired her first album “A Taste of Life”.
Sharon’s next move was to Montreal where she embedded herself within the industry, becoming one of Montreal’s most sought after vocalists, performers and writers. Her endeavour’s led her to DNA Productions in Montreal, where she completed her sophomore EP “Defining Me”. Sharon was then welcomed into the Canadian performing group KALMUNITY Vibes Collective and in 2005, her gospel track “Follow You” was selected for the Montreal Mass Choir’s debut DVD recording. She has also had the honour of performing with the choir at The Metropolis in Montreal.
Sharon’s work as a backing vocalist, has led her to work with Grammy nominees Deborah Cox and Martha Wash, Canadian icons Jonas and Jean LeLoup and European UMA winner Omar, and has recording with motown legend Bernard “Pretty” Purdie.
Her vibrant onstage personality and endearing audience engagement has seen Sharon tour, Morocco, Canada, Asia, and Europe, and she now continues to wow Aussie audiences with a growing fan base across the country.
