Product Notes

'Well crafted grooves with a lot of soul...Scott Sharrard is one of the best blue eyed soul singers we've heard in years' -Dusty Groove America (dustygrooves.com) ''One of the best young guitar players to come out in years.' -The Paper 'Sharrard is the next Eric Clapton or Mike Bloomfield' -Indianapolis Star Tribune ' Sharrard is an incredible lead vocalist and guitarist' -Ron Scott, NY. Amsterdam News 'One of the best guitarists in the country.' -Larry Flick, Billboard Magazine 'Dawnbreaker' is the debut solo album from former Chesterfield's frontman, vocalist and guitarist, Scott Sharrard. Imagine the soulful, funky rock of Prince and Lenny Kravitz combined with the confessional ballads of Coldplay or Zero 7 and fused with the virtuostic guitar styles of Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton... now you might start to understand the sonic landscape that is the music of Scott Sharrard. Diverse influences abound in Scott's musical palate and the resulting fusion becomes the kind of sophisticated pop music that we have not heard in generations. He is already a renowned songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and producer and 'Dawnbreaker' also features his talents as a drummer, bassist, keyboardist and arranger. Scott Sharrard's music was originally introduced to the world through his work as lead guitarist and vocalist of the New York City band, The Chesterfields. The band independently produced and released two albums (2001's 'Henry Street Soul' and 2003's 'The Chesterfields-EP') to wide critical acclaim. The band received strong college radio airplay and performed and toured at a wide array of East Coast and Midwest clubs, theaters, and festivals. They also opened shows for such artists as Dr. John and Midnight Oil and received critical praise from Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20), Billboard Magazine, and Ahmet Ertegun. During this time, Scott built a solid reputation as a freelance guitarist, vocalist, producer, and composer; working with a variety of artists such as: P. Diddy, Marshall Crenshaw, Cornelius Bumpus, LewSoloff, Michael Powers, Matt Wilson, Jerry Vivino, Grant Green Jr., P.J. Lougrhan, KatyPfaffl, Brian Charette, and many others, performing all styles from HipHop to Modern Jazz. In 2003, Scott amicably parted ways with The Chesterfields and began recording demos for what is now his debut solo album, 'Dawnbreaker', with Producer/Engineer Charles Martinez (Rob Thomas, Keith Richards, MickJagger) and drummer Charlie Drayton (Keith Richards, B-52's). Scott's music can tell stories of fast living and urban isolation ('A Thousand Days' and 'In Her Arms'), explore the trials and complexities of love ('Down'), or express a need for truth and spiritual redemption ('Approval' and 'Show Us The Way'). All of these lyrical themes, combined with an endless palate of relentless grooves, soulful vocals, soaring guitar work, and dense harmonies culminate to create a universal soul music that is the music of Scott Sharrard. 'Dawnbreaker' Written, Arranged and Performed by Scott Sharrard Produced by Scott Sharrard and Charles A. Martinez Mixed by CAM Music and Lyrics by Scott Sharrard, Copyright 2003/2004 (except track 1, additional music by Charles A.
