With a sweet, soaring voice, catchy hooks and thoughtful, emotionally-charged lyrics, singer/songwriter Sharon Edry(now performing as Sharon Goldman, www.sharongoldmanmusic.com) has only just begun to make her mark on the New York City music scene. Her sophisticated brand of acoustic pop is steadily garnering a following of listeners eager for the lyrical substance and strong musicianship they miss on commerical radio. In the spirit of songwriters like Natalie Merchant and Lucy Kaplansky, Sharon is most comfortable in that fruitful territory where folk and pop intertwine.
A long-time NYC resident and Long Island native, Sharon grew up as a suburban kid in love with ballet, books and Billy Joel. Today, she pours her passion into songwriting, yielding intelligent, melodic and bittersweet songs of love, rejection, identity and independence in the city she loves best.
"Sharon displays a honesty and originality in all of her songs...touching on a spectrum of emotions."
--Eric Cohen, music director, WAER Radio, Syracuse, New York
""There's a plethora of young women doing the acoustic singer-songwriter thing at the moment. Sharon separates from the crowd because of the lovely qualities of her voice ... purity, simplicity, directness, 100% presence. No big histrionics, vocal gymnastics, or the sound of a throat damaged by a jagged bourbon bottle. She knows that well-written songs can survive intact without the help of a triage nurse."
-- Eddie O'Strange, Town & Country Radio Show, New Zealand
"This is a very good collection of top-class songs that deserve your attention. Each of Sharon's tracks on Semi Broken Heart is ideally suited as a showcase for this talented lady. One of my favourite tracks is 'Stained Glass Window.' The word picture is perfect and you will be entranced to find how the story evolves. The performance is simple and spare for the most part and it suits the song to perfection. "
