Long Island born-and-bred, Sharon Goldman was raised on ballet, books and Billy Joel. Her singer-songwriter storytelling is a "clinic in how to paint an indelible picture with the simplest images and symbols" (Alan Young, New York Music Daily). Sharon’s 2016's KOL ISHA/A Woman's Voice CD was named one of the Top 10 Folk Albums of 2016 by WFDU's Ron Olesko. She combines heartfelt portraits and memorable lyrics with unforgettable melodies and pure, precise, expressive vocals — taking a folk/pop sensibility to new artistic heights. Sharon's newest album, Every Trip Around the Sun, was released in July 2019.
"With Every Trip Around the Sun, Sharon Goldman reaches inside herself and pulls out a compact, intimate voice that whispers existential secrets into the listener's ear. The resulting effect is a seductive, delicious sharing of places visited and a life fully lived." Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live in New York City
Sharon has won numerous songwriting awards and was honored with a showcase spot at the 2017 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference. Grounds and Sounds is thrilled to have her on our stage.
