Sharon Smith / Bio

Sharon was born in Pittsworth, Queensland. She has resided in the Pittsworth and Oakey region most of her life.
When at school she was very sports minded, and as boxing was a sport that has been in her family for a long time, she took it on. Sharon trained with her father and brothers for most of her younger life, had her first spar at age 7 years of age, then at the age of fifteen she perserved and committed herself to the sport for 5 years and had 7 fights, her reward being the first women’s welterweight champion of Queensland. It was a hard road as women were’t allowed to fight in the ring at the time. So that also was a another hurdle Sharon overcome as well.
While always being inspired by music, Sharon really didn’t participate until she met Jeff Brown and started to play bass. Over the period of time that Sharon and Jeff were together, she got to support many disinguished country music artists including Dean Perrett, Barry Thorton, Charlie Boyter, Keith Jamieson, Alisha Smith and many more.
In 2006 Sharon and Jeff parted ways and Sharon decided to keep going with her music playing bass and also working on her own solo singing career.
In 2009 Sharon entered the Australian Bush Balladeers Association’s Bush Balladeer Star Quest and made the final 4. Sharon won the Bush Balladeer Star Quest. Since then, Sharon released her first album titled “The Road Of Life” and has received 2 awards, Pittsworth Gidgee Coal Encouragement Award and Gold Medallion Award QLD New Talent Of The Year.
2010 Sharon was nominated in the final 3 in the New Talent Award at Bungendore Country Muster. Another great experience was the Country Music Academy, Sharon was one of 21 senior students at the Academy in 2010.
2013 has proved to be another memorial year with the release of her second album “It’s The Only Life For Me” and the birth of her daughter Kimberlee Jane.
