Cabaret Artist, Actress, Producer, Writer, Canadian GAL! Sharron's Blog is hilarious & heart-wrenching! Featured as a Diarist in the National Post twice, sometimes she is called on to write bits for NOW, Xtra, The List & The Scotsman. Sharron's Blog has been called "Brutally honest and funny." by Glenn Sumi of the Now Magazine on the Twitter. A guilty pleasure shared by performers & non-performers alike ALL OVER THE WORLD! THE WORLD.

Full Dark Shows!! March 4th and 5th.
So, I have been writing...rewriting...throwing shit out...photo copying...buying music... changing the keys... watching documentaries...reading articles...talking to fellow artists... pouring through my old stuff... and working... working... working.
I am also working on a couple other projects at the same time...so there is a blessed mix of the forward movement of one thing feeding another.
And the whole time I am endeavoring to remain open to all...which is really fucking challenging.
Sometimes (read: most times) if something doesn't work RIGHT AWAY I am tempted to throw it out...THROW IT OUT!
(You should have been there a couple years ago when I discovered wasn't a patient person...I had lived under this mistaken notion my whole life. Clarity is scary, sometimes. Luckily, someone I didn't really enjoy told me this information so I was loathe to believe it...ah...it got to sink in gradually.)
But there are a couple pieces that will be harder than usual to figure out...and I will be figuring it out with two more (fabulous) musicians...so, a gal must be prepared.
I am lucky enoughto be working with 'smiling with disposition of a saint' percussionist Jamie Drake, the 'returning for the fun and games/we traveled the world' Chris Tsujiuchi and the 'new to the party guitar/mandolin/other instrument playing and ready to do this shit', Jason Chesworth.
I feel excited.
Like Beyonce says...yes, I said, Like Beyonce says...jump out of the boat and swim back...I am sure someone else said it...but I watched that "Life is Like A Dream" HBO special 3 times this week...so far...
GOD, I hope my idea for something I put together about her works the eff out. I want to be her...and at the same time cannot believe her. TOO MUCH.
