Grammy-winning songwriter Sharon Robinson ’s solo career officially began in 2008 with her stunning debut Everybody Knows. Her solo bow garnered critical acclaim and Sharon mesmerized audiences with her smoldering solo performances. After six years on the road with Leonard Cohen, Sharon has hit the ground running, writing and producing her second solo album, Caffeine, a collection of new compositions encompassing soul, rhythm and blues, folk and jazz, a new book and successful European Tour.
For thirty years, Sharon has been associated with Leonard Cohen as a co-writer, producer, and vocalist. She co-wrote and produced Cohen’s 2001 album, Ten New Songs, (one of Rolling Stone’s “Top 100 Albums of the Decade”), and co-authored the Cohen classics, “Everybody Knows” and “Waiting for the Miracle.” A Grammy-winning songwriter, Sharon’s work has been covered by artists as diverse as Patti LaBelle, Don Henley, Aaron Neville, and Roberta Flack to name a few. This past December she released an intimate musical journey photo collection, On Tour with Leonard Cohen (powerHouse books), spanning six years on the road with Cohen. In conjunction with this release, Robinson also showcased her work with exhibitions at the prestigious Morrison Hotel Galleries in New York and Los Angeles.
