Here I Am, Sharon DuBois’ second album as a solo artist, presents us with a funky, new, fresh sound. Her band lays down a deep and solid groove upon which Sharon’s silky and innovative voice is supported and she freely expresses herself, tantalizing all or your senses. All songs are original “S” as her friends like to call her. She writes straight from the heart, giving the listener an intimate view into her innermost truth. With courage, she holds nothing back, presenting you with the beauty of a divinely channeled love experience.
Sharon DuBois has been singing since babyhood under the guiding tutelage of her 10 older siblings and musical parents and surrounded by pianos, guitars and a harp. Her first solo performance was at the age of 12.
She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology/American Indian Studies from San Diego State University and an Associates degree in Music/Voice Concentration from Monroe Community College. Sharon studied voice at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.
Ms. DuBois has performed with a multitude of bands and artists from Wynton Marsalis to Daniel Jackson (Ray Charles) and Marshall Hawkins (Miles Davis) to the La Jolla Symphony Orchestra Choir. She sang with Charles McPherson Jr.’s Cold Sweat Band at Idyllwild’s Jazz in the Pines festival, 2010. But, Sharon says her most thrilling and memorable performance happened as singer of the MCC Big Band at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York.
Sharon has over 500 jazz standards in her songbook and is willing to work with your band or her own at weddings, corporate affairs, festivals and night clubs.
