Chicago blues and soul singer Sharon Lewis’ Grown Ass Woman on Delmark features 12 new original songs with special guest appearances by harp legend Sugar Blue and slide guitar queen Joanna Connor. Sharon’s longtime collaborator, guitarist and songwriter Steve Bramer, contributed 6 of the originals.
Grown Ass Woman kicks off with “Can’t Do It Like We Do” a tribute to the current Chicago Blues sound and scene. “Hell Yeah!” is a total party jam, there’s plenty of soul like “They’re Lying” and “Call Home,” and “Freedom” is a timely song which points out that ‘freedom cannot be freedom until freedom means freedom for everyone!’
Sharon’s commitment to the blues has paid off handsomely, as she’s developed into one of Chicago’s hottest blues acts. She’s performed twice at the largest Blues Fest in the world – The Chicago Blues Festival, is a regular at Kingston Mines among other hi-profile blues joints and performs internationally often.
