Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, Sharon Cline is an extraordinary young vocalist who brings a unique & distinguished sense of jazz history to her song stylings. Her brilliant interpretations of standards, show tunes, and classic jazz ballads leave a lasting impression on her listeners that is truly unforgettable! She is exciting, sexy, fun and mesmerizing. Her style is reminiscent of a time gone by, yet is distinctively contemporary. Growing up in the South, with a very musical family, Sharon was influenced by the great torch singers she heard playing on her mother’s phonograph. All throughout the day, the sounds of Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole resounded throughout the house. Sharon fell in love with the romantic melodies and lush harmonies of American music. She wanted, most of all, to become a great interpreter of the tender & dreamy lyrics of composers like Gershwin, Porter, and Kern.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
