Sharny Russell Jazz Singers Workshop
Sunday 5 August @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm$50 - $85
Barnes-Wilson Workshops present … Sharny Russell Jazz Singers Workshop.
Sharny has mentored singers to success, like DAMI IM & MEGAN WASHINGTON. Learn great jazz style singing from a superb professional! Sharny demonstrates her tips for great jazz style, including scat, in the first session of the workshop. The second session is where Sharny works with singers on improving their performance.
With 160 songs, four completed musicals, degrees in classical piano and jazz music studies, and known in the industry as a leading exponent of scat singing, Sharny’s versatility would appear to be her greatest asset – and one she has been happy to share with her students, who have included X-Factor winner and Eurovision jury award winner Dami Im, Aria winning indie-pop artist Megan Washington, and Montreux Jazz Award winner Kristin Berardi.
Sharny miraculously survived an horrific car accident early in her career. Sharny’s faith underpins her recovery and her boundless energy and contributions to Australian music. She has shared stages with James Morrison, George Golla, Emma Pask, The Idea of North, Darren Percival and Grace Knight. Sharny has received an APRA award, Australian Songwriting Competition Award and numerous recordings to her name including one on the ABC Jazz label.
