For Sharlene's BIO click HERE.

Sharlene remembers being 7 years old and making a model harp from bits of wood and nails, using rubber bands for strings. Years later, Sharlene sculpts sound through her musical vehicle, the harp.

Now an accomplished, innovative harpist, recording artist and composer, Sharlene explores Celtic, South American, and contemporary genres.

Sharlene's CDs are collections of transcendent tunes which sparkle and resonate with her masterful technique. Relaxing, rejuvenating, rhythmic, evocative, beautiful, original.

Sharlene collaborated with flutist/pianist Susan Piltch to create a beautiful instrumental album entitled Anticipation. With the addition of the wonderful George Koller on bass and the unique repertoire Sharlene and Susan play this recording is definitely not your usual harp and flute album!

Beyond the Waves is Sharlene's third independent album that is swimming with tunes you can listen to over and over again. Described as eclectic, beautifully produced and very enjoyable by The Wholenote Magazine, Toronto, this album is like the third part of a triptych. the rhyme & the river and Journey of Shadows are the first sections of this trilogy. These albums are harp albums where the harp does not hide. Whether backed by bass, percussion, accordion, saxophone, cello, fiddle or harmonica, the harp sings through. While in the studio with Beyond the Waves, Sharlene also produced a short length CD Island Mountain. This features Sharlene's composition Island Mountain Suite and her arrangement of Alfredo Rolando Ortiz's piece Merengue Rojo.

Whether playing original works, such as Lost River, Dream Habanera and Wallace Bay; or interpreting the work of Alfredo Rolando Ortiz - Llano, El Rio or the searing Merengue Rojo - Sharlene displays a meticulous control that, while technically virtuosic, always manages to be sensuous and organic, all the while appearing as easy as child's play.
