SHARON GOLDMAN sings “grown-up folk-pop” — that is, sophisticated songwriting for discerning listeners. The New Jersey-based singer-songwriter has been called a “brilliant tunesmith” (New York Music Daily) whose vivid imagery and intelligent, inventive storytelling — combined with clever, catchy melodies and pure, precise vocals — take folk-pop to new, more powerful places.
Think Suzanne Vega. Shawn Colvin. Aimee Mann. KT Tunstall. Brandi Carlisle. Send them all on a subway ride downtown with Sharon’s idol, Paul Simon, and you’ll get her brand of honest, direct, poignant, clever songwriting.
