“WE WENT INTO THE STUDIO AS A JAZZ TRIO WITH A FEW ORIGINALS, WE CAME OUT AS A 5-PIECE BAND, WITH AN ALL ORIGINAL ALBUM, AND A NEW NAME - “SHARPE 5.

We are so pleased that our first album has come to be.  It marks the culmination of our first chapter as a band.  It's been an engaging and curious journey to find each other and make our music together.

Our most sincere thanks goes out to every person who has attended our performances, contributed to the funding of this album, or shared kind words of encouragement.  The real purpose of our pursuits is to share our music with those around us.

We would like to extend a special thank you to our producer, Marc Atkinson for guiding us through this process with calm optimism, creativity, and humor.  Also thank you to Marc's wonderful family for graciously hosting us on Hornby Island throughout the recording process.

"Teamwork makes the dream work."
