Sarah Sharp Quintet - Live at Monks Cover

Join us for a live taping and listening-room concert for the Sarah Sharp Quintet! Sarah Sharp - Vocals Mitch Watkins - Guitar Oliver Steck - Piano/Accordian John Fremgen - Bass Masumi Jones - Drums Enthusiastic accolades have followed Sarah through her career including multiple awards for her singing and songwriting. The self-produced album “Phoebe’s Dream,” with then-band Jitterbug Vipers, earned Sharp Top 5 placements in Austin Music Awards categories for Best Female Vocalist, Producer, Songwriter, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Band of the Year, and Best Jazz Band. Sarah also was a (two times, once with Jitterbug Vipers, and once as Sarah) top recipient of the Black Fret Award (now Sonic Guild) from the organization supporting “the creation and performance of extraordinary new music.”“It’s so clear that the music you create is so inspired by your environment,” says NPRs Michael Feinstein. Of her song “Trouble,” Feinstein adds, “That is the kind of song that has such a classic quality to it and it’s a song that could have been written a long time ago, and yet it speaks so much to the world now, and I think it will speak to people whenever it’s heard.” Sarah is nominated for a 2024 Austin Music Award in the Best Jazz category.  Please Note: This is a live-taping, so we'll be enforcing a whisper-policy!
