Country singer-songwriter Shari Rowe has a heart for people. Family is one of her greatest values. She often performs at charity benefits. She uses her life experiences to let listeners know they’re not alone. She is determined to give back what her biggest musical influences have given her: comfort, inspiration, and encouragement. The Arizona native has signed with Lamon Records Nashville and plans to record a new project and music video in 2014.
Born and raised in the Southwest to a supportive, hardworking, blue-collar family, Shari began singing in grade school choirs and in church. They didn’t have much while she was growing up. Perhaps, she suspects, that’s what makes her music so relatable. Shari recalls fond memories of a childhood spent gathered singing with family.
“The nights always ended with a camp fire,” she says, “which inevitably led to singing, trying to find harmonies with each other, and getting goose bumps when it came together just right.”
Although she has dabbled in many genres, fans praise her country flare. This natural inclination is where she landed, where she feels most comfortable as a performer, and where she can best express her values in her songwriting. Her influences include Alison Krauss, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, and Miranda Lambert. She hopes her music will give others what these artists have given her – “music to do life to”
“Shari Rowe is real,” says Dave Moody, President of Lamon Records Nashville. “And it shows through her music and songwriting. We’re all excited about working with her in the studio!”
Today Shari travels all around Arizona performing with her six-piece band and has built a solid fan base. She is the 2013 winner of the Independent Music Award for Best Country Song. Whether it’s at a Veteran’s benefit, Relay for Life, or a traditional music venue, Shari wants her music to be able to meet the everyday person right where they are. Her shows are high-energy and her songs have a distinct Southwestern feel and bluegrass musicality. Her songwriting themes range from love and loss to encouragement, to long summer nights by a campfire.
Shari will record her first EP with Lamon Records later in 2014. For more information on Shari and other Lamon Records artists, visit www.lamonrecords.com.
