Singer/songwriter Sharon Martin has spent a large amount of her career as front woman for a wide range of bands with varying styles. With the recent release of her new solo EP Natural High however, we see this Glaswegian lass make a strong, focused step in the journey to becoming a successful artist in her own right.
The most recent band Sharon fronted was Grammy-winning producer Stephen Lironi’s electro/disco outfit FLESH. Before FLESH, she was in The Kingfishers, (a band containing members of The Bluebells, Del Amitri, Deacon Blue and Love and Money) and before even that she was front woman for pop-punk outfit Handsome Dan.
Sharon has spent the past few years writing, recording and gigging as a focused solo artist. Her personal audience has grown and grown, with this EP being something of a thank you to the fans that have supported her as a solo artist. The EP has taken a few years to write and record, though the sound is the result of a developed artist who has full confidence in her music.
The subject matter of her songs varies, but one common factor in Sharon Martin’s music is her beautiful voice, which handles a range of styles perfectly. Her songs all tell a story – whether it be from her own perspective or that of another. They are full of raw, fresh emotion, meaning the listener can easily relate to them. One thing is for sure, Sharon Martin is among the very best in unsigned music in Scotland and perhaps in the UK also.
