Hey – I’m Sharron-Idol. I’m a singer/songwriter, and I’m attempting to help to entertain you with my music: I do hope that you enjoy listening to it, and I’ve compiled all the album notes from my releases for this section of my website.
I’ve done this because the way that CD Baby displays the album notes truly sucks; and my releases are worth more than just plain text.
I do like to update things from time to time, and this is an update – so here goes nothing…
2016 is well under way at time of writing and/or editing.
– Time flies when you’re enjoying yourself or so they say. – They’re right; the years are flying past!. That’s what happens when you’re over 40: You’re over 50 in no time.
My focus in 2015 was on growing as an artist,
and the quantity of releases were less than they had been as a result of using more time for self-discovery and less studio time. In 2016 I’m as usual again stepping up to the task, as well as up to the podium: Well you know what they say: “Practice makes perfect. – The other artists keep practicing and I’ll just keep on getting more and more perfect. 😀 – That was so below the belt for my fellow artists; I do apologise for my extreme bigheadedness lol. I was just kidding.
This year I appear to have developed an arthritic knee
and hip on my right side; which is about as welcome as a pork chop in a mosque. – Nevertheless we push on through and continue striving: Life’s a bitch, but I’m a super-bitch.
The road is long – in fact seemingly never-ending.
Art can never be perfected as such; just expressed better and with more emotion, diligence, and passion. There is no perfect artist. There is no perfect art, until one can positively and solidly define perfection, and then having defined the “perfect” art it is no longer art; because art by its very nature is indefinable as a universal constant and is unquantifiable.
This is where art and science part ways eternally, except for maybe maintaining something akin to an artistic quantum state that can never be fully defined. – This for the purpose of keeping art in some kind of quantifiable constant for the sake of not having to alienate it from science totally. – But now I’m trying to pigeonhole art – akin to fitting a multidimensional peg with six triangular sides into a round hole. (Part-credit to Isaac Asimov there for the thinking behind the terminology used.)
You can still purchase my fundraising EP * C’est La Vin, C’est La Vie * on CD Baby at a VERY reasonable price;
which generates donations to BBC Children in Need. – No it doesn’t pay my phone bill. That was a rumour which started when a friend of mine said it jokingly. – There’s no truth in it.
I can’t boast many years of experience or a long musical history or history in entertainment.
What I can bring to you, however, for your entertainment, is great and growing ability, enthusiasm, tinged with technological aptitude and the experience of a number of years.
I’m a born artist who nearly didn’t happen: In my teens I knew I was a singer/performer, I loved singing/performing, and I was good at it too. I still know I’m a singer/performer now: Age and a disability aren’t going to stop me living my dream. Join me on my journey; we’re all stars – we just need a place to shine.
So here is another Summer…
In fact as I transpose this text we’re already past Midsummer’s Day 2016, and Brexit has happened… Was that heat-wave that felt like late June that happened in early May the sum total of Summer 2016? I wouldn’t be surprised if it was, and it hasn’t been any hotter since then. Whatever the case, there’s going to be a lot of music happening regardless of the weather. – That can only be a good thing.
I hope you’ll support me by purchasing a few releases too. 🙂 – Thanks in advance. (It really sucks when I say that. – I’m never saying that again.)
I’ve transposed the album notes to this website.- They link to the relevant page on this website. – Enjoy.
If you like my spiel, or my music, or both - even my geekiness; then I'd like you to come back some time. - In fact I'd like to stay in touch with you, and have you come back here to this site sometime.
The only way I can think of to achieve this is to ask you to leave me an email address on which I can contact you... So I'll tell you what I'll do: I'll give you almost 30 minutes of my self-composed mix in exchange for your email address. - 'Good deal yeah? - 'Great, we're singing from the same lyric-sheet here, as it were.
When you enter your email address below and click "Get It Now", you'll be taken to my "Thank You" page, where you can download your music, and click on links to more of my stuff if you're interested too.
Since I will then have your email address I'll send you email from time to time; like when I have something interesting to say, or when I release something, or even when I think there's something I've found that you'd be interested in.
You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time if you get fed up with getting them, and I won't complain about it. - And you won't hear from me again; unless you re-subscribe.
'Sound good to you? OK let's do this: 'See the inset below? Follow the instructions - it's really easy - and we're away.
'See you there.
