I know all about guitar players-I’ve seen the very best-and Scott Sharrard is the perfect guitarist for my band. He understands that you don’t need to play just for the sake of playing; Scott isn’t one of those guys who thinks they get paid by the note. He never steps on the vocals, and he leaves plenty of room for everyone else to do their thing, but when it’s time to solo, Scott delivers, boy
One of the best young guitar players to come out in years.
Imagine the soulful, funky rock of Prince and Lenny Kravitz combined with the confessional ballads of Coldplay and fused with the virtuosic guitar styles of Jimi Hendrix or Eric Clapton, and you’ll start to understand the sonic landscape that is the music of Scott Sharrard.
I don’t know which genre I love him more – blues, rock, soul or pop (…) he sounds like an accomplished star in any of them. Scott Sharrard is one of those few who remind us there’s only one ‘genre’ – the music.
Sharrard is the next Eric Clapton or Mike Bloomfield.
Sharrard’s slide work evoked the Allmans’ signature sound, his playing was multifaceted, incorporating subtle volume swells, Memphis-tinged double stops and classic B.B. King licks.
Gregg Allman’s secret weapon.
Scott Sharrard, guitarist for Gregg Allman’s band, is not only that, he is also an excellent songwriter and singer in a genre that is a little out of the expectations. Not southern rock, but more soul, a lot of soul (…) and blues. He combines his strong, soulful voice with delicious guitar with a strong, bluesy slant.
…he offers the songs with power and conviction. His guitar playing, much like his voice, is fluid and soulful, encompassing Cropper, Hendrix, and BB King. In fact, fans of King’s Indianola Mississippi Seeds era will find a lot to love about the Scott Sharrard Band.
An incredible guitarist.
