Somewhere in between jazz and blues you’ll find the music through the heart of Sharon Bourbonnais. When you see her fingers glide effortlessly across 88 keys and hear her sultry voice inviting you to share in clever, insightful stories, you immediately sense this is not your typical singer/songwriter fare. Occupying a fun niche between New Orleans inspired jazz and Texas blues, Sharon’s music swings and sings of romance, charm and panache.
Sharon has been the number one Austin Jazz artist on music site Reverbnation for over two years. Sharon and her band, Bourbonnais, have residencies in Austin at the world-renowned Elephant Room and the historic Driskill Hotel Bar. She tours frequently throughout Texas, the Midwest, Hawaii and is expanding to Europe. Sharon will join rock legend Joe “King” Carrasco on tour in France late July 2019. She will tour Spain in late Summer, featuring a return performance at the Pueblos Blancos Music Festival. She’s recording a new album with noted producer and music legend Chris Gage, eyeing a 2019 release.
Sharon has three CD album releases to her credit; including Reves in 2014, A Girl’s Gotta Play in 2017 and 2018’s Generations. Sharon occasionally lends her keyboard and vocal talents to other artists in studio and onstage. She is a voting member of the Recording Academy/Grammy’s and BMI artist.
