Sheryl is currently recording in Brooklyn with producer and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Mark Marshall. There first collaborative effort "I Live In The Cracks" was released in July.

Electric Eyes, an EP of original lounge music, released in 2009 (Izzy Gold Records) was the result of the collaboration between Sheryl and legendary Producer Izzy Gold, (Ashlee Simpson, George Clinton, The Ravonettes, etc.). Upon release of Electric Eyes, Suzanne Hilleary, founder/president of WacBiz Music licensed all of the songs for use in Film/TV.

Not An Ordinary Girl, was conceived during a trip to Brazil’s Northeast – Salvador da Bahia. The city of Salvador is the epicenter for many of Brazil’s most progressive and exciting percussion players. The music of "Not An Ordinary Girl", blends the percussive ideas and rhythmic elements, heard throughout Salvador, with Pop elements and English Lyrics.

Sheryl co-leads a colorful Brazilian/Jazz quartet called Brazz Jazz. Brazz Jazz has twice toured Brazil, in support of their CD Kick Off Your Shoes, to remarkable success. Their CD has been the focus of several radio shows in Brazil, newspaper articles and a consistent seller in music stores. “A fundamental aspect of brazz jazz, which sets them apart from their peers, is the choice of material” states Ayrton Martini. Martini a Brazilian music critic and producer adds, “brazz jazz escapes from the Bossa Nova as the obvious translation of Brazilian Jazz”. The repertoire choices are not the usual Jazz standards and the songs are chosen with good taste and originality”.

Locally, Sheryl has performed with her band at many of New York's Hot Spots including: Rockwood Music Hall, The Zinc Bar, Piano's and The Slipper Room. She has appeared several times, at Carnegie Hall, as backing vocalist for Angelique Kidjo.
