Having promoted some of today’s best known and hottest music acts from when they began their journey, we’re pleased to showcase the amazing talent of:
“Sharlette is one to watch!!” – MarkMeets Entertainment
MarkMeets’ featured artist SHARLETTE is our rising star for May 2015
Hailing from SW London Sharlette is a beautiful and talented singer/songwriter bringing her contemporary soulful pop sounds to the masses.
At UK entertainment website MarkMeets, our passion, online presence and reputation for finding, introducing and promoting fresh emerging new talent is unparrelled. We offer artists a great platform to be seen and heard by the public, media and fellow artists.
Having attended hundreds of music showcases, judged at talent shows around the UK, interviewed news talent we have discovered new talent before they were household names! Previous talent we have worked with include Concept, Tich, Sam Smith, Jessie J, Rixton, The Vamps, Luke Towler, Ellie Goulding, Adam Lambert, Aiden Grimshaw, Michael Buble, Overload, Tom Mann, Kingsland and many more artists over the years!!
Sharlette says “I believe that what I have written is healing for someone, or it’s affirmation of a particular love that someone might be feeling. So my first priority is to connect with people through my music.”
“Sharlette delivers soulful blues and pop with edgy urban undertones” – Mark Boardman (Music Journalist).
Currently recording her debut EP due for release soon, Sharlette can also be found performing regularly at a number of venues including Pop Revue at Freedom, Soho (run by the industry respected SEB Collective) and London’s famous Troubadour in Earls Court.
The EP will deliver Sharlette’s own brand of soulful blues/pop. With her influences ranging from Etta James, George Michael and Paloma Faith the EP will bring a mix of powerful vocals, intoxicating melodies and rhythmic beats to dance to. The EP will be available from all major music outlets with her current single ‘Far Away’ already on iTunes and Amazon. Details of the EP’s Launch Party will be announced shortly.
Having begun her career only several months ago and already headlined her own sell out shows (Ice Bar, August 2014 and Freedom, October 2014) among other accomplishments, big things can be expected from this artist who aims to reach out and touch audiences with her heartfelt, self-penned tracks.
“Sharlette will be popular with audiences of any age” – MarkMeets Entertainment
Her obvious talent and lovable, outgoing personality, had friends clamouring to ask her to perform at family weddings and parties. Then in December 2013 Sharlette gave an impromptu performance at an open mic night which led to the SEB Collective asking her to perform her very first showcase in April 2014 at Pop Revue, Soho – London. That was a defining moment for Sharlette who in her own words “caught the bug to perform!”.
Since her first showcase, it’s been nonstop performing live and also invited to radio shows, penning new tracks, recording, promoting and collaborating with talented artists and producers. Working with artists like Jethro ‘Alonestar’ Sheeran, Nevamis, and featuring on a Bars and Melody single “Keep Smiling” (UK’s topselling physical single in Feb 2015). Sharlette hopes her own debut EP will be well received by her fans and with the general public.
Her main influences are Jimmy Ruffin, Ben E King, Diana Ross, Celine Dion, Etta James and more!
When asked about writing her own music she states “Writing my own music is important to me because what I write comes from deep inside of me and when I perform it I’m literally wearing my heart on my sleeve”.
Having already set up and sold out her own shows at Ice Bar, London W1 and Freedom, London W1 Sharlette is now looking forward to the May release of the new EP, continuing to perform to sell-out crowds across the country and living her dream.
“3 years ago, none of which I have achieved so far would have EVER crossed my mind, it would be just a dream that would have stayed a dream. So I don’t doubt that anything can happen after experiencing what I have experienced already and only within just under a year”.
‘Shot Me Down’ which will be released on all major music outlets very soon!
For all things SHARLETTE:
Each month we celebrate an artist who we feel deserves some recognition, whether they are an undiscovered talent trying to make it into the music business, or an existing star who has not reached the level we feel they deserve to be at!!
