SHARON GOLDMAN is a New York-raised, New Jersey-based singer-songwriter whose "intense, insightful, vivid" storytelling is a "clinic in how to paint an indelible picture with the simplest images and symbols" (Alan Young, New York Music Daily)
Over several well-received albums (including 2016's KOL ISHA/A Woman's Voice, which was named one of the Top 10 Folk Albums of 2016 by WFDU's Ron Olesko) she has combined heartfelt portraits and memorable lyrics with unforgettable melodies and pure, precise, expressive vocals — taking a folk/pop sensibility to new artistic heights. She performs regularly at house concerts, folk coffeehouses, festivals, arts and cultural venues and community centers.
Sharon was honored with a showcase spot at the 2017 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference; a finalist spot at the 2017 South Florida Folk Festival songwriting competition and three Honorable Mentions at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest. She previously wrote the popular blog Songwriting Scene; hosts music regularly in her NJ hometown (most recently, she curated the popular Schoolhouse Songwriter Series in Metuchen, NJ); and is is also a proud longtime member of the Jack Hardy Songwriters Exchange and the SummerSongs community.
“Sharon Goldman is producing music that deserves careful listeners. I urge you to listen along carefully with me. ”
— Charlie Silvestri, host of Up Close And Acoustic
