“One of the best guitarists in the country.”

- Billboard Magazine


“Despite all of the Allman comparisons, Sharrard has his own voice. The beauty of the album, and no doubt the source of his talent as a side man, is that he knows how to selectively insert the licks and ticks of others without losing his voice as an artist. Allman Brothers/Gregg Allman fans will want to hear this album, which features Allman’s final original song, but anyone who enjoys guitar-driven rock, soul, and blues will appreciate Saving Grace.”

-Elmore Magazine


“One of the best young guitar players to come out in years.”

-The Paper


“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.”

-Roots Times

“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.”

-Gregg Allman


“Sometimes music so transcends its foundations in its organic beauty that it moves beyond a place that mere words cannot describe it. Saving Grace is filled with such music, and Sharrard’s guitar playing so often moves beyond words that the very best way to experience Saving Grace is to allow its music to wash over us and carry us to the places that Sharrard takes us.”

-No Depression


“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.”

-Mike Joyce, The Washington Post

“The result – off Sharrard’s upcoming album Saving Grace – is a blast of brassy grit, full of vocal harmonies and white-hot, Allman Brothers-worthy guitar moves. Gregg would’ve been proud. It’s the sort of recording Gregg Allman would’ve once made: rooted in the music of his predecessors, with enough electricity and elastic musicianship to inspire the next generation of Southern sons.”

-Rolling Stone Magazine


“From Manhattan to Memphis to Muscle Shoals and back again, Sharrard has stamped his ticket and his mark on the past, present, and future of record-making in rock-and-roll.”



“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.”

-Paul Bondarovski, Midnight Special, Blues Radio


“Sharrard is the next Eric Clapton or Mike Bloomfield.”
