"This is an exciting time for me. I've worked so hard, and am still working so hard to bring these creative dreams to fruition.... and I've kind of manifested a creative storm around myself. One creation begets another.... and I am constantly surprised and pleased about what gets birthed from this energy. My goal is always to stand in the midst of that creative storm and just be still.... allowing what MUST to flow through me. I feel as if I am growing.... My artistry is growing.... my band is becoming more cohesive.... and we are not only making music, we are making ART, and I am expressing my soul.... all of us are on this album.... and there is more to come!" says Sharon.
