We are honored to be hosting 2018 Grammy Nominee Scott Sharrard at The Shine House! This is a must see event!
Scott began his music career in Wisconsin in the early ’90′s. He spent his teenage years attending Milwaukee’s prestigious High School of The Arts by day, while playing in clubs at night sharing the stage with local blues legends the Stokes, Willie Higgins, and Harvey Scales, as well as international blues and jazz luminaries as Buddy Miles, Melvin Rhyne, and Clyde Stubblefield.
At 19, Scott moved to New York City with his band, The Chesterfields releasing three albums, touring nationally, and received critical praise from the likes of Russ Titlemen, Rob Thomas, and Dr. John. Although highly acclaimed in the national press, the band dissolved in 2002. Scott then embarked on his career as a solo artist releasing three albums from 2002-2008. Dawnbreaker, Analog/Monolog, and Ante Up.
In the Fall of 2008, Scott joined the Gregg Allman Band as a touring guitarist, being hailed as “Gregg Allman’s secret weapon” by Glide magazine. He’s been called “One of the best guitarists in the country” by Billboard and “the next Eric Clapton or Mike Bloomfield” by the Indianapolis Star Tribune . Gregg Allman, has high praise for the guitarist. “I know all about guitar players —I’ve seen the very best — and Scott Sharrard is the perfect guitarist for my band. He understands that you don’t need to play just for the sake of playing; Scott isn’t one of those guys who thinks they’re getting paid by the note. He never steps on the vocals, and leaves plenty of room for everyone else to do their thing, but when it’s time to solo, Scott delivers, boy.”
Along touring with Gregg Allman, Scott continued to work on his solo career with his band, The Brickyard Band releasing a self titled debut in 2012 embarking on a national tour soon after.
Scott developed a close musical relationship with Allman over the years and ultimately served as Musical Director for the Gregg Allman Band co-writing several songs with Allman. Scott’s song, “Love Like Kerosene” was included in Gregg’s Live DVD release, Back To Macon in 2015 and on Gregg’s final studio album Southern Blood released after Gregg’s passing in 2017. Recorded at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL, Southern Blood, where Scott served as musical director and lead guitarist, received a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album and song, “My Only True Friend” co-written by Scott and Gregg, was nominated for Best American Roots Song.
Over the years, Scott has had the honor of performing with such artists as The Allman Brothers, Levon Helm, Amy Helm, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, Jennifer Johns, Marshall Crenshaw, Kelley Hunt, Katy Pfaffl, Brian Charette, and Jay Collins & The Kings County Band.
Since the passing of Allman, Scott has been concentrating on the growth of his solo career while holding Gregg’s legacy near and dear as a guiding light and point of everlasting inspiration. His next album Saving Grace has been recorded and will be released in 2018.
Scott is honored to have received a Grammy Nomination for Best American Roots Song for My Only True Friend which he co-wrote with Gregg Allman for Allman’s highly acclaimed posthumous studio album, Southern Blood. The album also received a nomination for Best Americana Album where Scott served as musical director and guitarist. “Gregg Allman and I finished writing two songs together in the last couple years. One of those was “My Only True Friend” and I’m proud to say that we got a Grammy Nomination for that song and also for the entire album today. Not only that but for the first time in many years the Grammy’s will be hosted right here in my adopted home of NYC. Wherever Gregg is I hope he can continue to feel the love and that he can also keep on sending us the great vibes. Onwards.
