ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On her debut CD, "Lessons of Love", Eileen Sharkey carries the listener off on a tour of Gershwin, Rogers& Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Rogers & Hart, Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer favorites. Her lyrical voice captures the essence of such Broadway and torch song favorites as "The Man That Got Away", Too Marvelous For Words and Come Rain or Come Shine, I Have Dreamed and Every Time We Say Good-Bye. The CD also features an original composition called You Were There. If you're a Betty Boop Fan,as Eileen surely is, give "I Wanna Be Bad" a listen! Guaranteed to delight! Reviewers called the CD "outstanding" and wrote that "she sings with great warmth and sincerity".

At home beside a piano in a candle lit cabaret, or on a stage performing a Broadway revue, Eileen Sharkey's favorite music harkens back to more sophisticated times of the 40'. s and 50's.

A native of Long Island, Eileen Sharkey has performed at many New York showcases including The Improvisation, Good Times,Firebird Cafe and other well known clubs and venues.

She is a popular presence on the Long Island charity circuit, having performed at fund raising events for Cancer Care,The Association for the Help of Retarded Children,St Chritopher Ottlie, and many other well respected charitable organizations. Ms. Sharkey also produced a Christmas tape that featured her performance of Christmas Clasics called, A Long Island Christmas. Sale of the tapes benefited Long Island Cares, an organization founded by the late singer Harry Chapin. Long Island Cares works to feed the hungry on Long Island.

Eileen has also recorded a Christmas CD, titled, "A CHRISTMAS TREASURE", a treasure chest of all your holiday favorites!

Ms. Sharkey has studied voice for many years with leading vocal instructors in New York City and Long Island.

She resides on Long Island, with her husband and two children.

Ray Kolle

A delightful CD from an excellent singer.
This CD is an absolute delight with an unhackneyed track list and a knockout singer. Her phrasing and diction are excellent. She has a pure, lovely voice than can swing or deliver the most tender ballad to perfection. The backing is outstanding, using inventive rhythms and varying instruments from track to track. This CD goes right up there with my very favorites. Eileen Sharkey should be a queen of the New York cabaret scene.

This CD is great. Eileen has a great voice, and music selections are great, especially Come Rain or Come Shine, that is one of my favorite songs. Both her Christmas CD this CD are great and worth adding to your collection. I listen to this CD on my way to work, and I never get bored with it. The back up music is great also. Of course Mrs. Sharkey voice is unique and original, and that is why I listen to it a lot. Thanks Eileen for the great music and give us some more.
