Press/ Recommendations

"As a composer, Sharon Bousquet has graced two of my feature films with her amazing music. Her uncanny ability to "Feel" the pulse of a movie, and her talent for texturing a scene with just the right mix of mood and ambience, has made her invaluable to me as a filmmaker. The fact that she is also a brilliant singer-songwriter, and can bring fully finished and immaculately produced songs to the overall soundtrack, is a wonderful bonus that has spoiled me as a director. I look forward to many projects ahead with this gifted woman". - Stephen Savage Lunatopia Productions Writer/Director, "Cosmic Radio" & "Vertical" Stephen Savage - Industry Quotes

"Although the media and music industry consistently like to rely on comparing unequaled talent to previous music legends, it's safer to say that Sharon (Bousquet) is a true original."” Timm R. - The Metro Santa Cruz
