Join The Drunken Bean and The Shara Maxwell Trio.
This vocal vixen sings classic jazz and blues standards. Her renditions stay true to the melodic content with respect and warmth.
Shara was raised musically by her mother (adept in piano, clarinet and accordion) who encouraged the young songbird to experiment in the world of melodies nurturing her intuition to blossom. In college she studied with college professor Karen Sala in Southern Illinois, moving on to Chicago with iconic pianist and performer Ruth Allyn. She continued studying with Karen Saren, and Los Angeles vocal and performance coach Stephen Memel, “The science of switching on”.
At an early age Shara become mesmerized by jazz on the radio and in adulthood, this would be the inspiration that would turn passion into pursuit.
