I loves my hometown paper! 
And now, people, I will recycle a joke…because that is the way I roll.
It is always nice to have your picture unexpectedly on the cover of your hometown paper…
Right near the word “doughnuts”. 🙂
Always.
Thanks to the wonderful Gary Smith, at the Hamilton Spectator, for being such a staunch supporter for nigh on 25 years.

GARY, YOU ROCK!!!

So, I woke this morning and holy crap it was snowing…the dogs, George and I put on our snow gear and went for this wonderful walk…


RIGHT!?!?
HOW BEAUTIFUL IS THIS!?!?!
 AND during this glorious wintery walk I had an epiphany, people! (Like Sweeney Todd… but happier…and just as awesome)
I walk through this forest almost everyday…but the view changes…almost everyday.
LORDY & FANCY!

(Get ready for some more lordiness…)
Epiphany = Sharron, you need to open you eyes to some NEW AND CHANGING VIEWS in the places you have walked before!!
I have a big year ahead abroad AND at home….so many awesome projects in the works…and in an effort to not bombard you with social media invites I am gonna update my website and give you most of the info on this blog…I am always endevouring to find new and interesting ways to get the info out…it is a work in progress.


January:
I am gonna do my very first cabaret of 2013 on Friday January 25th at Maggie Cassella’s awesome Pubaret on Parliament Street in Toronto…and after all the touring and planning I have been hoping for a night to just sit and sing…and chat…and dish…and laugh…and probably swear…and slag those fucking Kardashians at some point. People, I have seen that Les Mis movie…and been to Africa…I got something to say! I will sing some pop and some musical theatre (I never do that anymore…)…a lot of stuff I haven’t done in a while…and if I am lucky enough to have someone out there who has a request
, if you wish to hear a song, you just gotta say! I want to sit, sing and have some casual musical fun…I had no idea what to call it…because you gotta call it something…so…

March:
Holy Cabaret Residency…what a thrill…a big ole thrill.

This residency is place to explore and I am searching for new ways to musically storytell… going down a deeper, winding path… funny… scary… uncomfortable… comfortable…LORD IT SOUNDS LIKE A GRIMM FAIRYTALE…YES…I will be
using the music of artists like Usher… Sondheim… Waits… and so, so, many more…I have goosebumps already…I hope that you can come and be a part of it all…
