Born in England of Dominican parents but raised in Canada, where she has returned to live, Singer/Songwriter Sharon Musgrave shot to prominence in 1991 whilst collaborating with William Orbit on the Bass-O-Matic project.

They achieved international status with the hit "Fascinating Rhythm" (Virgin), which Sharon co-wrote. An album soon followed, cementing the group''s worldwide status as a credible dance act and Sharon''s ability as a writer. A world tour established Bass-O-Matic as an act that could cut it live, due in large part to Sharon''s stage presence.

In a recent interview with the UK''s Record Mirror, William Orbit, (Grammy for Madonna''s "Ray of Light"), throws accolades Sharon''s way saying, "I don''t have to worry about playing live when I''ve got Sharon on stage with me, because she''s a consummate singer," William adds "No worries, she''s done it all. The studio''s my home, the stage is hers!"

In 1992 Sharon was invited by WEA to work with jazz pianist Julian Joseph. She collaborated on the "Language of Truth" album singing the Curtis Mayfield song "The Other Side of Town". This track was eventually used as the single from the album. The video for this track inspired a Teacher''s Whisky commercial, in which Sharon appeared, playing a blues singer in a 60''s bar scene, singing the classic "No Greater Love". Sharon gigged with Julian promoting the "Language of Truth" album and touring with such jazz greats as Herbie Hancock.

Sharon''s studio work in England, both as a writer and session singer, led her to work with many notable performers, Simply Red, Mick Jagger, Duran Duran, Courtney Pine, Maxi Priest, Tears For Fears, as well as writers and producers, Terry Britten, Henry Priestman, Jimmy Haynes, Steve Harvey, Phil Chill and Adrian Wyatt.

Her final collaboration in the UK before returning to Canada was in 1998 on the "Get in the Swing" album with Steve Alpert.

Since returning to Canada Sharon has enjoyed a successful solo career both live and on record. Her most recent Canadian solo release in 2002, "Selah" (Zosar Records) earned her two nominations, "Best Songwriter" and "Best Spoken Word", at the prestigious Urban Music Association of Canada award show, held that year in Toronto. Jude Kelly, VP of UMAC claims "The title track "Selah" is especially brilliant". The video for this track achieved top twenty status on the Bravo video chart.

Her latest international release "Nobody" is a track included on the groundbreaking CD "Soulfragettes", (Recoup/Timewarp). This is a unique compilation of powerful R&B female singers. Sharon''s track, co-written with Adrian Wyatt, has been singled out for special attention, and is included on the compilation album "Ibiza Lounge 3", (Dureco). Other artists on the same CD include Norah Jones, Moby, Simply Red, Coldplay and Kilian. It is also under consideration for a French film, featuring Gerard Depardieu, Emmanuelle BĂ©art and Fanny Ardant.

Such is the interest in "Nobody" that Sharon and Adrian are working on more tracks for a possible album sometime next year.

Brilliantly soothing. You will want to listen to it over and over. It''s the kind of album you want to play in the car, on your way home from a hectic day, or a crazy night out. The overall vibe of this CD, is simply calm.
Sharon''s voice is like water flowing, splashing on rocks, washing away all of life''s little miseries. This is the music of her mind she says, and she expresses this with such grace. Accompanied by musicians on sax, trumpet, guitar and a slick grand piano, she used some very talented people to help her get her point across. This album is for those people who like to hear tasteful music. At home at work, anywhere you feel like having a healing moment, this is what you want to hear. Especially in the year 2002. Check it out. You''re going to love it!
''Selah'', In stores now.

SELAH (Pause)
"Move over Angie Stone, Jill Scott and even you Lauryn Hill, there is a new soul sista in this game and her name is Sharon Musgrave. Hamilton''s newest soul sista is taking off.
Her voice is best described as sensual, sultry and captivating, in what I think is going to be a whole new attitude and style of soul, funk, and sensual groove.
In this I mean, that it has been a long time since I have heard true music with fire, passion, inspiration and feeling that can make you listen and understand soul in a new prospective.
The title track Selah is an earth moving, breath taking and even sexual groove that takes you and that special someone to a higher level.
To sum this album would take a long time for me to explain, so if you really want real soul movin'' music in your collection, this CD is a must have."
