I have been meaning to mention Sharon McMahan's CD since I first came across it last year!!!
Sharon has a MySpace - here's hear blurb:
Sharon McMahan is delighted to take this opportunity to share her music.Born in Sevierville, Tennessee, raised and musically disciplined in Detroit, Michigan, Sharon is a talented lady who has kept a rather low profile while racking up a series of impressive accomplishments. As a prolific songwriter, she has been active in her field since the age of twelve. Her songs have been recorded by Barbara Lewis, Gracie Darnell, Deon Jackson, Johnnie Mae Matthews, the London based group, The Searchers, The Londonderry Strings Orchestra, The Three Degrees and Hall of Fame inductees, Mavis Staples, Etta James and jazz great Benny Golson. Sharon was signed as a writer/artist to Columbia Records by Clive Davis.She has penned lyrics for other composers and worked as a lyricist for an NBC-TV television mini-series production. Sharon has also written and performed radio promos.Sharon’s new CD is nothing less than a musical breath of smooth, soulful fresh air. She has teamed up with multi-talented, award winning writer/producer, Preston Glass. The results are in. What’s on the menu? A collection of original songs, words and music, coupled with the extraordinary, heart-touching vocals from this warm, sensitive, sincere and expressive artist. The title track “Somebody Else” is a rockin’, soulful sound with “tell it like it is” lyrics…….a true R&B masterpiece. Her music has a smooth and sometimes funky style that will no doubt, leave every audience satisfied.
This CD contains “words and music” that will have an affect on your heart and soul. After listening, there is a strong possibility you will become addicted, especially to songs #1 – 11. However, it does come with the unconditional guarantee that it is “listener friendly” and will, without question, establish the fact that “hearing is believing”!
Sharon also released:-

Columbia ? Get Out Of My Life/?
In recent times, her Columbia 45 has been a popular side in the UK and is a gorgeous mid-tempo tune.
