Album Notes
"Well crafted grooves with a lot of soul...Scott Sharrard is one of the best blue eyed soul singers we've heard in years."
-Dusty Groove America (

“Imagine the Soulful, Funky, Rock of Prince and Lenny Kravitz combined with the confessional ballads of Coldplay and fused with the virtuosic guitar styles of Jimi Hendrix or Eric Clapton, and you’ll start to understand the sonic landscape that is the music of Scott Sharrard.”
-Putnam County News, NY

"One of the best young guitar players to come out in years."
-The Paper

"Sharrard is the next Eric Clapton or Mike Bloomfield."
-Indianapolis Star Tribune

"Sharrard is an incredible lead vocalist and guitarist."
-Ron Scott, NY. Amsterdam News

"One of the best guitarists in the country... danceable soul grooves that support a lyrical journey."
-Larry Flick, Billboard Magazine

“I don’t know which genre I love him more-blues, rock, soul or pop…he sounds an accomplished star in any of them. Scott Sharrard is one of those few who remind us there’s only one “genre”- the Music.”
-Paul Bondarovski, Midnight Special Blues Radio

"Sharrard's slide work evoked the Allmans' signature sound, his playing was multifaceted, incorporating subtle volume swells, Memphis-tinged double stops and classic B.B. King licks."
-Mike Joyce, The Washington Post
