Armed with an arsenal of bluesy guitar licks that hit like aged whiskey and a smoky sweet voice that could be bottled for backyard barbecues, Myc Sharratt crafts songs that draw from the heart, the working man, the dreamer.
Sharratt’s latest, the 2016 Vancouver Island Music Awards Album of the Year nominated, “Cellar Door” is a tribute to his late mother and father. The craft of songwriting is clearly appreciated and respected by Sharratt in this timeless yet ever present collection of tunes.
“Cellar Door” began tracking in North Vancouver with, Juno award winning producer, Ryan Stewart. The pair previously worked together on Sharratt’s first two albums “Incomplete” and “Blueprint”. The latter album earned Sharratt 5 Vancouver Island Music Award nominations including a win for Male Vocalist of the Year.
His third effort “Six Feet Above” is a live album recorded in his hometown of Nanaimo. It drew a VIMA Songwriter nomination and a Top 20 nod for 104.3 FM ‘Sounds of Summer’ radio contest. Sharratt’s memorable and soulful live act has brought him across the globe. It was during a tour across the pond, that production of “Cellar Door” continued, in Ireland, with Lisa Hannigan band alum Gavin Glass.
Sharratt co-produced the majority of the album back home, with Todd Dunsmore, in a converted stone cathedral into home studio. The surroundings perfectly suited the honest and organic songs Myc Sharratt writes and performs.
