Sharon Lia will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio/tv show hosted by King of Cool Jimmy Star along with Cool Man About Town Ron Russell to discuss the release of her new album “Fairytales”, her music and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.
Sharon Lia, a voting member of the Grammy Association, who has been likened to both Christina Aguilera by Jersey Fresh Magazine, and Amy Lee of Evanescence by Independent Share Radio, has put together The Sharon Lia Band, giving powerful performances both vocally and instrumentally and performing energetic soulful originals and cover music.
Dubbed a ‘powerhouse vocalist’ by The Times in NJ, Sharon has worked with legendary producer David Ivory (Patti Labelle, The Roots & Halestorm) and Stephen ‘Eppy’ Epstein, (WAR) husband of the late Linda Creed.
In her extensive solo career, Sharon has performed at numerous ceremonies and festivities including a career highlight singing ‘The Greatest Love Of All’ for Mr. Epstein, which led to her getting his blessing to record the songs remaining in esteemed songwriter Linda Creed’s vault. Sharon had the extraordinary honor of co-writing ‘Welcome To My World’, a song left unfinished by Creed and Lonnie Jordan of the band WAR. Sharon then released an album of four Linda Creed songs and her own originals as a solo act entitled ‘Welcome To My World’, which was produced in part by Johnny Neel of Allman Brother’s fame.
Fast forward to late 2013, and the Sharon Lia Band’s emergence on the mid-Atlantic’s music scene, where the band performed throughout Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, receiving a standing ovation for their ballad performance of ‘Forevermore’ at the Hard Rock Cafe in Philadelphia in early 2014. The band performed at the Voltage Lounge as part of the Breakout Artist Competition and was signed as a top tier act by LadyLake Music Publicity. In November of 2014, Sharon wowed the crowd in her solo opening performance in ‘Show Me Love’ with popular Freestyle artist, Robin S, at Rho Waterfront in Trenton, which was covered by Musical Seduction, Music Insider Magazine, and OnStage Magazine.
Sharon founded the “Ladies Who Rock 4 A Cause” organization and helped Stage 4 Breast Cancer victim Cristi Honea (who Sharon met via her publicist during her own cancer treatments) and another charity out of NJ in 2015 “Christine’s Hope for Kids”, giving back through music to make a difference.
The band has risen greatly in the short time that they have been together bringing a diverse, technically skilled and visceral talent with years of experience to the stage: Rick Jannotti on Guitar, Kyle Yankowy on Bass, Howie Fallon on Drums, and Sharon Lia on Keyboard and Lead Vocals. Together, they believe in the power of music to unite, empower, and ultimately to help others. Look out for the release of their debut album “Fairytales” in August of 2016 and a follow up album “Beyond Wonderland” in December of 2016. Headlining the Hard Rock Café, Philly in August, organizing two “Ladies Who Rock 4 A Cause” events, and performing alongside the area’s top original bands at Hollystock in August will be highlights in addition to of the release of two albums.
Their music is available on iTunes / iTunes, Amazon and more.
