Biography


SHARMBER's unique sound is defined by the distinctive nature of the band's line up.

The front line ladies sing like angels but play guitar like demons. The blasting guitars and melodic vocal pairing of the girls makes SHARMBER a very unique beast. According to Australian Guitar Magazine this pairing represents “the most impressive female guitarist/ rock singer partnership in the history of Australian rock.”

The male rhythm section empower the band's driving sound and harmonious colour and depth is added vocally by the drummer, who cleverly directs the traffic without over playing. Instead he plays for the song, with groove and conviction that cannot be reckoned with.

As a collective, SHARMBER writes brilliant songs and portrays mature song-writing diversity which enables coexistence with its intensely captivated audience. SHARMBER’s music could be played almost anywhere, whilst consecutively a left of centre approach is adopted, (a trick that few bands can pull off).

In the studio SHARMBER has worked with producers Tony Wall, David Nicholas, Daniel Leffler, Rick Will and Shane Fahey. SHARMBER has released two EPs nationally and its debut album is in progress. A punchy start to the album has been made at Megaphon and Sony Mastering Studios as SHARMBER won studio time in a live competition late 2008 presented by A Red Letter Day Events, in which over 100 Sydney bands competed.

On the road SHARMBER has shared the stage with Cog and the Butterfly Effect and recently accomplished an International Tour of New Caledonia playing 6 extensive shows at the "Live En Aout" Festival which drew 10,000 punters. International Emergenza Festival 2008 also placed SHARMBER in the Top 10 finalists ahead of several competing bands across Australia and NZ, dubbing SHARMBER’s drummer as “the best in the competition”.

Lyrics

Motherland

Written By: Sharmber (writing members include Justin Scott, Sharnee Davis and Jane Olson)

I've got myself a new idea, I've got myself a new way
I've got myself a new little something else.. Something to say

She gives me reason to smile.. Yeah, she gives me reason to stay
She gives me some kind of special feeling when I see her wake, when I see her wake

'Cause we're down, we're downunder
The sun and see we're young and free like her

She's got a red rocking heartland, white sand on the shore
We talk about all the seven wonders well, she's got them all
The sun sets on the west coast, heat flies in the north
And words just can't describe what she's even worth, she's got soul, and we call her home

'Cause we're down, we're downunder
The sun and see we're young and free like her
Yeah we're down, we're downunder
There's just no other motherland like her

Like her...
...There's just no other motherland

'Cause we're down, we're downunder
The sun and see we're young and free like her
Yeah we're down, we're downunder
There's just no other motherland like her

There's just no other motherland
There's just no other home
There's just no other motherland like her
