Home: Nashville, TN  
Album: Not yet released. 
Song Clip: "The First One To Hurt" (MP3) 


Not only an accomplished songwriter, having written such prolific songs, Sharmian is proving to Music City that she is also a show-stopping singer with an incredible stage presence and personality, belting out huge ballads that bring crowds to there feet. Born in Trenton, Michigan, Sharmian moved at six years age to Southern California, where she acquired most of her music abilities. She then traveled to Nashville, Tennessee as a young adult to pursue her dream in country music. Her peers have certainly taken notice. Country music legend Mel McDaniel commented on her show that she is “one of the greatest voices in the business.” Being no stranger to the business of music, Sharmian has taken her experiences and ventured into management, production and promotion, simply making it happen, as she quotes: “If you want something done, you’ve got to do it yourself.” 
Sharmian, in her own created GOD given way, can wrap her voice around a country ballad or an up-tempo tune with the same fervor. She has worked with her late husband, Estill Sowards, touring with him as he promoted award winning John Michael Montgomery and one of country's hottest duos, Montgomery Gentry. Estill left her a legacy to live by, and she remembers his last words to her: “Remember me...your first Hit Record!” She was the last face he saw, and he is the first face she sees in all her music and in all her endeavors. “My husband is what completed me,” she states. 
Sharmian first enjoyed success on the popular gospel show entitled “The Nashville Gospel Hour,” a show that is still airing across the country. Other merits include traveling with Multi-Dove Award winner, Larrnel Harris, around the world – in Russia, where she sang at the Kremlin. She has also sung the gospel at the cathedrals in Petersburg, the Ukraine, and surrounding cities. Most recently, she wowed audiences with her weekly Internet radio show entitled “Please Squeeze the Sharmian Into Your Day!” Though Sharmian is known for her love for gospel music and her writing abilities to express her love for her Creator, that is not the only genre of music she loves. Her rich, powerful vocal styling allows her to sing the blues, R&B, pop, rock, and of course country. She has even been inspired to cut a hip-hop album, a project that is yet to come. “I want to do it all!” She adds, “This is America, land of opportunity. It’s time Americans take advantage of it.”

Through the years, Sharmian has refined her songwriting craft, collaborating with many top-notch songwriters, which include the great Don Goodman (“Ring On Her Finger” cut by Reba McEntire and Lee Greenwood), and David Lee (“1970 Something” cut by Mark Wills). In fact, David credits Sharmian’s late husband for his writing successes! Another writing partner is Nashville’s greatest Troy Martin, known for numerous hit songs, including “Baby’s Gotten Good At Goodbye” (George Strait), “Not On Your Love,” (Jeff Carson), “She Can’t Say I Didn’t Cry” (Rick Trevino) – just to name a few. Sharmian has also written and sang with MGM recording artist Hank Beach who wrote “You Lay a Whole Lotta Love On Me” (a song that was recorded by Shania Twain, Tom Jones, and Con Hunley) and for Loretta Lynn, who recorded his song “Journey to the End of My World.”

Sharmian’s forthcoming self-titled album is full of steel guitar crying its melody through every song, with up-tempos that will cause one’s heart to skip a beat! Her songs express her life experiences, and each one will leave you anticipating the next on her album. She writes every one of her songs with her fans in mind, because without her fans, there would be no other reason to sing or write.

 Sharmian is also involved with charities and has traveled with World Vision to feed the hungry around the world. She truly has a heart for people and hopes to open mental health coliseums for homeless people all over the world - with only one criteria: to let God’s love heal them. If they get caught with drugs or alcohol, they will not be kicked out, for it will be understood that addiction is an illness. However, drugs will not be tolerated, and that alone will weed out who is serious and who is not.

Sharmian is no doubt a force to be reckoned with in more aspects then one. However, music remains the focal point of her life, and she maintains a hectic schedule to promote her first single “The First One to Hurt.” With raving reviews on the single, she continues to cause quite a stir all around town and abroad! Sharmian has walked the red carpet at the American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, and GRAMMY Awards. In between, she also traveled to France causing a tornado at radio stations anticipating her new music. Sharmian continues to bring her music all over the country, with preparations for a world tour in the works.
