Sharon Musgrave’s career shot to prominence in the 90’s. She left Canada for the UK, where she was born, to pursue a career in music. She achieved international chart status with her hit “Fascinating Rhythm” on (Virgin Records) a song she wrote and performed with William Orbit. Then she was asked by Warner Brothers UK to work with jazz pianist Julian Joseph on his album The Language of Truth. Sharon performed Curtis Mayfield’s soul classic, The Other Side of Town.
After a career of touring all parts of the world, Singing in Commercials and constantly honing in on her writing abilities, she returned to Canada to settle down.
Sharon’s new album is entitled “Sha’s Archives”. The A in Sha, is a long vowel. She calls it an archival project for many reasons but mainly it’s based on all she has been through since the last album “Outflow.” Backed by her team once again, L. Stu Young and Peter Grimmer, who’s jazz inspired track “Sha’s Archives,” an instrumental, is also featured. Last but not least is a grand appearance from her most beloved Guitarist, the late great Brian Griffith who is featured on a track entitled “Triumph of Brian.”
“Sha’s Archives” is approachable, inventive and flavorsome with a personality all of it’s own. Each song has it’s journey and each journey has a peace of Sharon. The genre is soul with all it’s affiliates.
