The Lemon Tree
5 West North Street
Grammy Nominee/Brit Award Winner, singer/songwriter and violinist – hugely successful both as a member of legendary Irish group The Corrs and as a solo artist
Much has been written about the incredible talent for melodies The Corrs exhibited throughout their long career. Their unique blend of Celtic/Pop/Rock sold over 45 million albums. They toured arenas and stadiums across the globe. With a string of massively successful albums and singles played to this day like Runaway, “So Young”, “Radio”, “Breathless”, The Corrs have been a household name on every continent.
“Music is what makes me tick” says Sharon “it is simply who I am and what I do” and true to that when The Corrs took time off to focus on their growing families, Sharon – while raising her own family – began her solo journey enjoying the freedom of total artistic expression. In 2010 she released her self-penned first solo album “Dream Of You” a collection of beautifully crafted, melodic gems, a remarkable debut that demands to be listened to in full – each story and melody flowing seamlessly into the next. Her second solo album titled “The Same Sun” was quite a departure from the debut “Dream Of You”. Produced by legendary producer Mitchell Froom and recorded in LA . She has drawn her influences from the magical songwriting of the Late 60’s early 70’s all the way through to today. Just like life itself the album is bitter-sweet in mood but the melancholy remains unpretentious and balanced. It is raw, unguarded, emotional and playful.
Sharon’s solo live shows have not only had great reviews but inspired and allowed her to blossom holding centre stage which she describes as an incredibly powerful and fulfilling experience “I come alive on stage – it’s the only place where I feel totally and utterly myself! I love it!” Combining her solo repertoire with some of The Corrs hits she wrote and some traditional pieces – the set has the audience up on their feet almost from the start. In 2022 she toured supporting Jeff Beck on his UK dates as well as playing her solo shows in Europe.
