My Latest Productions
Jazz and fusion band from Toronto. Just finished producing an album for this very talented and emerging T.O. band.
Sharon Bieck has been in Toronto’s vibrant music scene as a saxophonist, flautist and singer/songwriter for many years.A chance meeting with Dragan Petrovic, a world class pianist and composer, in 2005 led to a musical collaboration that could be described as “two worlds collide”. Her collection of original tunes, has a distinct influence from Dragan’s performance and arrangements. The Way the Story Moves CD is an easy listening collection of beautiful vocal, piano and guitar compositions. The genius of Dragan Petrovic, shines through as the featured musician and arranger. Sharon’s storytelling through song will draw you in with her soothing voice and messages of love, adventure and life’s challenges and wisdom. A mix of jazz, funk, blues and folk, this album is their first collaboration.
