Myc SharrattArmed with an arsenal of bluesy guitar licks that hit
like aged whiskey and a smoky sweet voice that could be bottled for backyard
barbecues, Myc Sharratt crafts songs that draw from the heart, the working man,
Sharratt’s latest, the 2016 Vancouver Island Music Awards
Album of the Year nominated, “Cellar Door” is a tribute to his late mother and
father. The craft of songwriting is clearly appreciated and respected by
Sharratt in this timeless yet ever present collection of tunes.
“Cellar Door” began tracking in North Vancouver with,
Juno award winning producer, Ryan Stewart. The pair previously worked together
on Sharratt’s first two albums “Incomplete” and “Blueprint”. The latter album
earned Sharratt 5 Vancouver Island Music Award nominations including a win for
Male Vocalist of the Year.
His third effort “Six Feet Above” is a live album
recorded in his hometown of Nanaimo. It drew a VIMA Songwriter nomination and a
Top 20 nod for 104.3 FM ‘Sounds of Summer’ radio contest. Sharratt’s memorable
and soulful live act has brought him across the globe. It was during a tour
across the pond, that production of “Cellar Door” continued, in Ireland, with
Lisa Hannigan band alum Gavin Glass.
Sharratt co-produced the
majority of the album back home, with Todd Dunsmore, in a converted stone
cathedral into home studio. The surroundings perfectly suited the honest and
organic songs Myc Sharratt writes and performs.
