ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in South Philadelphia to a musical family, Sharon Bousquet grew up on the East Coast in towns like Chester, PA and Wilmington, DE. Early influences include Joni Mitchell, CSNY, Simon and Garfunkel, and the progressive rock lyricism of Yes. Jazz that leaned into blues, and haunting Irish melodies began to make their influences known at about the time that "Mirror, Mirror" was being made.

"Mirror, Mirror" is a journey through unrequited, difficult love, arriving at a place of acceptance, and a bit of an "oops, could've had a V-8" mentality. Mellow and thoughtful. Sparsely arranged to leave space for the emotion of the lyrics to sink in and deliver. Irish musician Tim Britton adds beautiful lines to three of the songs using penny whistle, flute and bag pipe to wring the right *heart-wrenching quality out of each piece. Upright bassist Chris MacLean brings clean and moving bass lines to the mix, with Sharon Bousquet's "gift of a voice" rising, dropping and breaking in all the right places to put these thoughtful lyrics into your mind for a long time to come.

Each of Sharon’s 5 CDs, including her first session in ’94 with the Vancouver-based ensemble “Travelers in Paradise” - a compilation that raised $10,ooo for the H.I.V. ward of the Vancouver Children’s Hospital - have been independently released.

”Sharon Bousquet does everything with sultry grace. She has considerable prowess on the acoustic guitar,
yet puts her instrument down to belt out electrifying a cappella numbers... Bousquet has the substance to rise to the top.” R. Patt, Metro Santa Cruz

Discography

Stormy Heaven (96); Mirror, Mirror (98); Bootleg Bousquet (01); Live in Texas (04); Temple (07). Compilations include “Peace from the Porch, Volume 2” (’06); and “A Christmas Wish”(’94).

• 2 songs from "Mirror, Mirror" and two songs from "Temple" can be heard in the upcoming film, “Cosmic Radio” (Feb.2009).
