Sheri Lynn DiGiovanna
Biography, by Julie Zeitlin
"You have your own voice," Nashville producer Gary Morse told contemporary country singer and Potsdam native, Sheri Lynn DiGiovanna. "You don't sound like anybody else."
Her debut album, "All You Need" (produced by Morse) features ten songs penned by some of Nashville's top writers - including Jeffrey Steele, Bob DiPiero and Al Anderson - Sheri sings about life, love, heartbreak and hope with a rare authenticity.
The music industry and the public have embraced "All You Need," and - thanks to worldwide commercial and Internet radio airplay and her compelling live performances - the CD sells consistently. One music director called it "a milestone in country music," and offered this advice to other stations: "love it and spin it." Sheri regularly plays Nashville's popular clubs and writers' nights. She can be seen this summer performing at the Norwood Band Shell.
Sheri recently recorded a Christmas Album, produced by her brother Joseph DiGiovanna. Her sophomore country album, which does not have a release date yet, will be produced by Gary Paczosa (Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton). "It will be different," she says of the new project. "I want to include some upbeat material - a few more danceable tunes than I had on my first CD."
While singing is her first love, Sheri has many creative outlets. She designed the album artwork for "All You Need" and for her Web site. She recently made her acting debut in Nashville - to excellent reviews - and is a sought-after costume designer. A classically trained pianist and singer with a musical theater background, she has written four musical satires and another musical for high school students. She is also fluent in both French and Italian.
Release dates will soon be announced for Sheri's upcoming CD, but in the meantime, fans can count on this: the music will come from her heart and soul, and reflect her singular style.
