"Song review"

Artist: Sharelle
Song: Fog
Review: by Judy Dyble

"Oooh! Completely different, this one. Powerful start and beat, Excellent voice. Proper guitar solo (haven’t heard one of those for a long time). Really good. Perhaps it gets a bit muzzy sounding later on. Take your foot off the fuzz box! That’s better. Nice ending!" - The Prog Files

Sharelle - Magnanimous EP

Bordering on Alternative and straight Rock and Roll, and showing off a heck of a fine production, Sharelle are a cool band. I would place this in the normal review section, but the added mellow side of them might throw some folks. But the thing is that their strength is the mellow material. Songs such as “In This Room” and “Never Let Go” are mellow, but carry such a huge punch to them in their emotional kick. Sharelle herself carries a voice that can hypnotize you at times, but she is always in full command and powerful. Musically the whole band are top notch, and as mentioned the production is great. Absolutely an all around impressive disc and is one of those releases that keeps you anxious for future word on the band. - Sonic Ruin

"Magazine Review - Magnanimous EP"

Artist: Sharelle - Magnanimous EP
Publication: Northeast Indie In-tune Magazine
Review By: Melody Geear

In order to make a name for themselves, female musicians in the rock genre tend to emphasize specific attributes in order to stand up and stand out amongst the dominating male force. Powerhouse melodies, edgy personas or gritty vocals, these tend to make the most impact with the shortest amount of exposure. Sharelle doesn’t go for many of the same tactics as many of her up-and-coming female peers do. She lets her intuitive lyrics and smooth, delicate vocals do the work. Sharelle’s music isn’t gritty, in your face or just a sheer façade; it’s reflective, fresh and just plain good rock.

The delicacy of Sharelle’s voice is juxtaposed a rhythmically intriguing rock band. The two counterparts paired together make a classic rock formula. At times, one can hear the influences of such great female vocalists as Sarah McLachlan. Her ability switch into the instant upper register is the signature haunting beauty of McLachlan’s voice, but it works well for Sharelle as well. The same haunting vocals can be heard on Sharelle’s seemingly intuitive track, “Fog”. She doesn’t quite hit some notes with the same pitch-perfect clarity, but it is a bold and lucrative attempt. She continues in the same vein with the track, “A Lifetime Isn’t Long Enough”. In this case, Sharelle brings out her emotive guns and does her vocal experience justice. It is a beautiful ballad, full of thoughtful and engaging lyrics. A soft piano creates the melodic foundation and guide for Sharelle’s lyrics. Being a seasoned vocalist, she does a beautiful job of keeping her vocals soft and smooth and not making the rookie mistake of belting out every last note. It is emotionally powerful without having to be literally so.

The rhythmic members of the band take control and show of their talents in a few upbeat tracks such as “Never Let Go” and “Fall”. These tracks feature more rhythmic breakdowns to show off what makes this band whole. They are stimulating and catchy, which makes great combination for radio-friendly songs. Armed with natural talent, years of experience and armed with a great vocal and rhythmic combo, Sharelle is sure to be a lasting force in the female fronted rock genre and beyond.

Sharelle Opens for Shane West’s Jonny Was

Sharelle is the band that any musician would love to have open for them, although it is a tough act to follow. Drawing in a decent sized crowd at Canes this past Friday night, Sharelle kicked off a night that included mosh music, an ode to punk rock by actor Shane West’s group, Jonny Was, and a Guns ‘N Roses tribute band.

Sharelle, the lead singer, approaches her songs with emotionally charged vocals and poignant lyrics. They opened the night with “Misunderstood,” and progressed to a keyboard solo by the band’s namesake, Sharelle, entitled “A Lifetime Isn’t Long Enough.” Her voice isn’t like any other female artist on the scene. Her range spans soprano and alto, and she holds notes that almost seem ethereal.

Self-taught on piano and guitar, Sharelle and her husband, guitarist Adam Fiori, write songs based on personal experience. This team met in Lake Tahoe and then moved together to Los Angeles to work in the industry. Adam’s previous job, a Producer for Sony, served him well when he decided that big labels weren’t for him. He built a recording and rehearsal studio out of their home in Encinitas, and the band practices there once a week, twice if they’re preparing for a rare gig.

Sharelle put an ad out for a drummer and a bassist about two and a half years ago, and
she lucked out when Brandon Hamilton answered the call with his drum skills, and Dave Garcia stepped in to be the group’s bassist. Sharelle is powerful on her own, but these guys unleash the groove that make songs like “Fall” filled with unforgettable high intensity.

Brandon was the drummer in Dramabomb before he joined Sharelle, and Dave was bassist for Radio One.
The musical influences for each member span a variety of sounds, but they all mesh beautifully. Adam and Sharelle like modern rock sounds from AC/DC, Audioslave, and the Foo Fighters. Brandon, surprisingly enough, likes the Dave Matthews Band, and Dave describes himself as a “metalhead” growing up. Dave thinks that John Myung is the best bassist walking, and Dream Theater is the band that gets him amped.

Since you won’t see Sharelle playing in dives (they are picky about which gigs they take), staying in the loop with their music is key. The group would love to have a greater distribution going, and they might start up their own independent label to distribute. Sharelle has a profile on where you can read their lyrics, but they are definitely at their best live. Sharelle works so well because the members feel like they are a family. When they perform “In This Room,” by far one of their most memorable, powerful and well-rounded songs, you can tell that they follow and lead each other effortlessly, creating a sound that leaves you wanting more and not able to forget what you just heard.

Shane West’s Jonny Was isn’t the typical pet project band for an actor, either. These guys like punk, and they like to rock. Shane leads with energy and good looks on the mic and the guitar. His bandmates Casey, Justin, Brett, and Matt bring their own flair to addictive choruses and fast beats. Shane is into Alkaline Trio and other “new school” rock bands. Fans of all ages danced and jumped around to show their approval and appreciation.

Canes’ center stage also hosted Critical Me, Dogmatic, and a Guns ‘N Roses tribute band to round out a great night of local rock combined with Hollywood punk glam.
