‘When The Corrs stopped, I knew I had so much more to do. I never wanted to stop singing, writing and performing, and achieving more as a musician. I love it up there. It’s like magic.’
The dark horse but in many ways a huge driving force of The Corrs - the violinist, pianist, vocalist and frequently the writer - Sharon kept her profile low….a svelte, soignée mystery. During the Dundalk band’s 15-year career, their mellifluous, galvanic blend of Celtic rock-pop saw them sell a staggering 45 million albums. They toured arenas and stadia across the globe, unleashed a string of hugely successful singles – What Can I Do?, Runaway, So Young, Radio, Breathless – and were universally adored, not least for the girls’ siren-like beauty.
In 2009, now married and with two children, Sharon, not able to stay away from her passion, was already writing and recording her first solo album Dream of You. Her first single It’s Not a Dream, released in 2010, was immediately A-listed on BBC Radio 2. Truly driven, Sharon took her courage in both hands and toured the album alone from 2011 to 2013, playing Europe, Australia, Asia and both North and South America. And something astonishing happened; she felt her true identity as an artist and performer emerge and blossom centre stage. After releasing latest single ‘Take A Minute’ in June, Sharon Corr releases her second solo album ‘The Same Sun’ on September 8th which is followed by a UK tour. Solo, there’s immediacy, an honesty and emotional vulnerability to the lyrics that is uniquely Sharon.
