Somewhere in between jazz and blues you’ll find the music through the heart of Sharon Bourbonnais. When you see her fingers glide effortlessly across 88 keys and hear her sultry voice inviting you to share in clever, insightful stories, you immediately sense this is not your typical singer/songwriter fare. Sharon describes her brand as Texas Jazz fused with Nola Blues.

Sharon and her band Tres Bourbonnais have been featured at SXSW and the Cutting Edge Music Conference in New Orleans. Her music has taken her across the South, Midwest, Northeast and Hawaii. Favorite haunts include a residency at the historic Driskill Hotel, the legendary Elephant Room in Austin and McGonigel’s Mucky Duck in Houston. Sharon plans to tour extensively to support her new release out Jan 2017 ~ “A Girl’s Gotta Play”.

A Dallas native, Sharon is a graduate of the University of Texas school of music, creating many opportunities to share her love of music through teaching and directing, while continuing to write and perform. Sharon started her music career in the Rio Grande Valley, performing on South Padre Island and attending Texas Southmost College where she was the pianist for the TSC Jazz Band before moving to Austin. Irie Jane, a popular all female reggae band recruited Sharon for a successful run, twice accepted to the famed SXSW music conference. Tropical winds of change swept Sharon to the North Shore of Oahu, HI for a decade. There she honed her songwriting while living an idyllic beachfront lifestyle, bringing back the spirit of Aloha when she returned home to Austin Texas. In 2015 she entered the studio with new producer Josiah Hoskins, who has been crafting a refined and definitive sound, centered around Sharon’s piano and voice, surrounded by a who’s-who of world-class Austin musicians.
