The Sharny Russell Quartet
Gold Coast launch of Sharny Russell’s PIANO METHOD for JAZZ SINGERS
FEATURING : Sharny Russell (voice & piano), Helen Russell (bass), Dave Sanders (drums) and Martha Baartz (saxophones & flute)
To say Sharny Russell is both enormously versatile and gifted, is an understatement. This extraordinary pianist, vocalist, composer, educator and producer, is known and respected throughout the Australian music industry. It was Judith Durham (of The Seekers) that spotted Sharny and made the insistent comment, ‘The world must hear you!’
Over an illustrious career spanning over 30 years, Sharny has moved between genres with ease. She holds degrees in classical piano and jazz music studies, and is know in the industry as a leading exponent of jazz singing. She is a prolific songwriter,performer, music director and producer, but is hugely loved and admired for her work as an educator. She is a Master Teacher of voice and piano and mentor to some of the most well recognised artists in the Australian music industry.
Sharny’s latest gift to singers and the music community is her new publication - Sharny Russell’s PIANO METHOD for JAZZ SINGERS. A labour of love, this educational resource is the culmination of Sharny’s knowledge, experience, dedication and artistry. Above all, it is an extraordinary testament to her generosity as an artist and educator.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Sharny to the Dust Temple, for the Gold Coast launch of her PIANO METHOD.
