Biography

Myc Sharratt

Armed with an arsenal of bluesy guitar licks that hit like old whiskey and a smoky sweet voice that should be bottled for backyard barbecues, Myc Sharratt writes songs that draw from the heart, the working man, the dreamer.

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Sharratt grew up listening to his parents’ record collection—heavy on guitar greats such as Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. By the time Sharratt picked up the guitar at age 15, he had stockpiled a versatile catalogue of influences which now included singer-songwriters such as Dave Matthews and John Mayer. While enrolled in university, a chance encounter with members of the acoustic rock band Flannel Jimmy led Sharratt to set aside his scholastic endeavours and record his first two albums "Incomplete" and “Blueprint", with Flannel Jimmy’s drummer Ryan Stewart at the helm. The latter album earned five Vancouver Island Music Award nominations, winning one for Male Vocalist of the Year. 

After touring across Ireland, the US, and Canada many times over, Sharratt has earned a reputation as a memorable and soulful live act. His 2010 live album ‘Six Feet Above’ drew a VIMA Songwriter of the Year nomination and a Top 20 nod for 104.3 FM The Shore’s ‘Sounds of Summer’ contest. 

Now ten years into a lifelong career, Sharratt completed his fourth album, “Cellar Door,” in 2014. The album is about finding the sweetness and strength in life’s tragedies while building a carpe diem mentality. Produced across the globe, ‘Cellar Door’ began in North Vancouver with, the now-Juno award winner, Ryan Stewart. During a tour across the pond, recording continued in Ireland with Lisa Hannigan Band alum Gavin Glass. The album was completed on Vancouver Island with Sharratt producing a majority of the album with Todd Dunsmore of Risque Disque Records.

Lyrics

April Fool

Written By: M. Sharratt

We met last year at the river in June
You looked so good in your tiny bathing suit
So I built a phrase to take your ear
Nevermind the day you never gave me the time of year
But I am not your April fool
I will not sit and wait on you
No I am not your April fool
You dressed as an angel at the end of October
So I faked my death to see if you'd rise over me
But I guess I have more devil inside of me
Because baby you walked right on by me
When your tires are stuck in the snow
When you feel like you just can't go
Well I will be your perfect fool

Let Go

Written By: M. Sharratt / R. Stewart

I've tried all the angles
I've walked the square
I'm spinning in circles
Around my cares
Don't look down
Don't look down
The world will spin you around
Would you draw the line
Would you leave it all behind
Let Go
Let Go
The shape of the world
It's light and sound
It's hard to imagine
Me without you now
Don't look down
Don't look down
The world will spin you around
Don't let your dreams die
Don't let your dreams die
Would you draw the line
Would you leave it all behind
Let Go
Let Go
Would you go alone
When you can't do it on your own
Let Go
Would you draw the line
Would you leave it all behind
Let Go
Let Go
Would you go it alone
Would you leave me on my own
To Let Go
To Let Go

Believe

Written By: M. Sharratt/ R. Stewart

It's not the way I planned it
I'm not the great romantic
And now I've let you down again
But just like a hero
I can save you from the evils of the world
Now you see it
Now you want it
Could you believe in me
My sweetest friend
If you could only see
You know I just can't stand it
Being such a great romantic
Everytime I let you down baby
Just like a childhood airplane
That's always going down slow
Now you see it
Now you want it
Could you believe in me
My sweetest friend
If you could only see
Come away with me now
You and I we've walked these streets before
You're always leading me on
I don't know I make believe
That you would you see it
That you would believe it
Could you believe in me
My sweetest friend
If you could only see
Open up your eyes
Could you believe in me
If you could only see
Come away with me now
