Hiding the voice of a soul legend beneath her iconic fluffy bear hood, Sharon Kovacs will perform again as a part of PSM Jazz Festival on May 21st, 2021!
Emerging from the music college and improvised open mike nights of Eindhoven in the Netherlands, she has forged her own unique path and entranced the globe with her wicked allure. The Bond-like tango noir EP ‘My Love’ was released in 2013. It was an instant European hit, even reaching Number One in Greece, and in 2015 her debut album ‘Shades Of Black’ charted in 36 countries, making the Top Ten in Germany and hitting Number One in her Dutch homeland.
Her second album ‘Cheap Smell’ is one of the most open, honest and inspired future soul albums of the decade, named after her last pre-fame band and like her debut, is out to find the positive in life’s toughest turns. It’s a series of confessionals about wild love and abusive romantic webs, about hedonism and addiction that follows Sharon’s rough emotional rollercoaster over the past few years - losing musical and romantic partners and building a new Kovacs family from scratch around producer Liam Howe.
With her sixty million YouTube views, unique style, a clutch of awards and high-profile sets at major festivals and dark, raw, bare-hearted soul with distinct touches of the greats such as Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse; with no doubt, one of the living soul pop star Kovacs invites you to an unforgettable night.
