Album Notes
Brooklyn-based and a Long Island native, Sharon grew up as a New York suburban kid in love with ballet and books. Today, she creates songs that are smart and sophisticated but just as simple and straightforward -- think Aimee Mann and Dar Williams meet Shawn Colvin and Lucy Kaplansky. Whether you call it "polk" or "folp," Sharon's folk-pop melodies and lyrics will have you humming along in no time.

Her first full-length CD, "Semi Broken Heart," was released under her previous name, Sharon Edry, on Elizabeth Records ( in 2004. Her new self-produced acoustic CD, "Shake the Stars" features guest appearances by talented friends such as Pat Wictor on lap steel guitar; Carolann Solebello and Abbie Gardner of Red Molly on bass and dobro, respectively; Andrew Frawley on percussion; Larry Siegel on mandolin; Allison Tartalia on piano; and Martha Colby on cello.

"Beautiful work. Her singing is flawless...her songs are smart and sensitive." -- Sloan Wainwright

"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

"Sharon displays an honesty and originality in all of her songs...touching on a spectrum of emotions." --Eric Cohen, music director, WAER radio, Syracuse, New York

"Sharon showcases some vocals that could cut the hair clean off a frog’s back! Precise, clean, and seamless."
--Annette Warner,

Just like heaven and just a little twangy
Was first hooked by sharon goldman reading her name in a concert listing on the New York based web site. love the song blue rain on her first CD, so was glad to hear this one would be on CD baby. Well best way i can describe this is the title of one of the songs. Just like heaven. you should go buy it today and add an extra one to your cart. You won't stoplistening to it.

instantly likeable
These songs are so likeable. Her voice is very welcoming; it makes you really want to listen carefully to see what she has to say. Her vocals are flawless. [read full review on site]

Love listening to this CD at the end of a long, hard day.
Shake the Stars is the perfect antidote to the end of a long hard day. Sharon Goldman's beautiful voice and upbeat yet honest lyrics never fail to inspire. I definitely recommend this CD!

Krista Kujat

Refreshing, honest, moving, FANTASTIC!
I play this CD over and over and never tire of it's honesty. Sharon's lyrics hit home, and her voice has the same heart rendering effect as the likes of Nora Jones.

I highly recommend her new release "Shake the Stars", it's soulfully therapeutic... an ideal companion for chilling out with a glass of wine and bubble bath!

Bob Bittner

Some fantastic songs...
I'm not a "folky" by nature, but this is a disc whose songs transcend any kind of categorization. The vocals and instruments are intimate, and the whole disc has what I (a non-folky, remember) consider a cozy coffee-house vibe. But it's Sharon's engaging lyrics and honest delivery that will make this especially appealing for listeners who aren't necessarily drawn to typical acoustic-folk fare. This is her best release yet.
