I always find myself being very reflective and nostalgic as years come to close. Despite releasing my first album with a full band, the beginning of this year, and especially the middle of the year, were hell for me. I went through some really difficult changes and learned a lot about myself and who my real friends are. All this time of growth and change allowed me to find the perfect band members, and brought a lot of new music out of me. Writing music isn’t just what I do, it’s the fire that burns inside of me that I have to release or it’ll kill me. I wrote our second album this summer, and the period in which I wrote it was nothing short of therapeutic. I got everything out of me that was lingering inside and hurting me, and it was, and still is, my proudest work. I can’t wait to set these songs free into the world next year, and to go on tour with all of my favorite people. This year was a learning experience, and next year I’ll put all of that knowledge towards progress and more great experiences. If there’s one thing I learned in the last 12 months, it’s that they weren’t joking when I was a kid, things do get better. And the bad things that happen to us are just learning experiences and tests of character. Everything will be okay in the end. Here’s to a great new year. Cheers, my friends.

Sharone & The Wind brands its music as "dark rock", a fitting description for songwriter Sharone's deep feminine voice, and lyrics about life experiences and lingering despair. The atmospheric, melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start playing live in 2014. By spring 2016, she had formed her rock band; its debut album, Storm, was released April 22, 2017. Shortly following the release, Sharone underwent a complete lineup change, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of the Wind: Alex Goldsmith on guitar, Michelle Bailey on piano, Zach Barrera on bass, and Anthony Hester on drums. The band's sophomore album entitled 'Enchiridion of Nightmares' was released on April 13th, 2018. The band is currently gearing up for their first ever tour. Dates are as follows: June 2nd -Moe's Original BBQ- Englewood, CO June 3rd -Triple Nickel Tavern- Colorado Springs, CO June 4th -Red Velvet Underground- Albuquerque, NM June 5th -Yucca Tap Room- Tempe, AZ June 6th -SPACE- San Diego, CA June 8th -IntegriTea- Vallejo, CA June 9th -Sparks Lounge- Reno, NV June 10th -The Loading Dock- Salt Lake City, UT View all posts by Sharone & The Wind
