Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, moved to Austin, Texas for six years and then to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1990 where she still resides. "I have a deep regard for this town and it's artists."
Sheri began playing music in the second grade where she took piano lessons. "I could never get music theory and played mostly by ear. My piano teacher became frustrated with that and fired me as her student after about three or four years." Sheri then started teaching herself guitar in the fourth grade. At age 16 Sheri landed a professional gig as a single act in Dallas, Texas. "I played guitar & sang every Wednesday night in the lounge of a prestigious Japanese restaurant."
Sheri's influences include the soulful sounds of Motown, the rock & roll sounds of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones & Led Zeppelin, the beautiful melodies of Carole King, the down-to-earth folk styles of James Taylor, Jim Croche, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Neil Young, the hard driving vocals of Janis Joplin and the magical style of Stevie Nicks. More recently Sheri has been influnced by Melissa Ethridge, Norah Jones, the Indigo Girls, Creed, Train, Matchbox Twenty, Three Doors Down, Coldplay, Switchfoot, Jimmy Eat World... the list is endless. "I am inspired by so many artists."
By 1994 she had formed a band called "JipsiJam" with artists Nancy Harris and Tom Henry. Sheri and Nancy found themselves recording at Long Branch Studios in 1995 and collaborating with Engineer/Songwriter Ed Robinson, which resulted in the birth of the album, "The Other End of the Road." To premiere their album, Sheri and Nancy successfully produced two live concerts in Los Angeles and Tulsa, which snowballed into four additional concerts.
Sheri formed "Instant Karma" in 1996 and the versatile band played the "Tulsa Blues Festival" two consecutive years, among other major venues & functions.
Sheri has collaborated with numerous artists & musicians on album projects through the years. She has co-written numerous songs with Mike Polk & Steve Purple of Oklahoma. She also co-wrote a song with her late friend Diana Roberts of Dallas, Texas, and is now working on a debut solo album entitled, "Point of No Return".
Sheri is the owner/operator of her own recording studio, "Mountain Studio Productions". She has performed with numerous bands through the years and has four albums under her belt.
"I want to play music with a message. I believe in the connection of all living things. I feel music is the universal language, and what better way to connect with all life, than to communicate with the heart?"
