Scott Sharp


I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on September 2, 1961. I have 5 brothers. Two older brothers and three younger brothers. My family was not a musical family. Infact, I’m the only one that sings and plays an instrument. We grew up living in various places throughout Minnesota. I started writing songs when I was 15 years old but didn’t do anything with them until later on in life. I graduated high school in Detroit Lakes Minnesota in 1979. I joined the Navy and was in boot camp 3 days after my high schoolgraduation. I married my high school sweetheart while I was in the Navy. I injured my back while I was in the Navy. I was honorably discharged with a service connected disability. My first marriage ended after only 4 ½ years. I have two sons by that marriage. My oldest son was born in 1980 and my youngest in 1982. In 1985 I went back to school and got my first college degree in Industrial Electronics. After my college graduation in 1988, I got a job in Houston Texas.While living in Houston, I started getting more serious about song writing. At the age of 29, with help from my friends, I bought my first bass guitar and started playing in a band. One thing led to another and things snow balled. I ended up recording a song for the Houston Rockets called Our Rocket Are Clutch City and it was played on national television. I also recorded my first song that I had written when I was 15 years old. It was called If Only In My Dreams. This was shortly followed by another song called Bulletproof. I was fortunate enough to get airplay with all three songs.In 1993, I made the big move to Nashville Tennessee to work on my song writing. I didn’t want to become a starving artist, so I have always kept my day job. Within a month after moving to Nashville, I met my co-writer Joe Perock. We hit it off quickly! We performed at writers nights throughout the Nashville area. The number of songs we have written together is well over 75. We still continue to write together after 23 years. Since my divorce from my first wife in 1983, I have had some long term relationships with women through out the years. My life’s experiences have been used to write many of my songs. Many of those songs were written about those relationships. In early 2001, a 7 year long relationship ended in death due to illness. The last 2 ½ years of her life was a constant battle with her health in and out of the hospital. Shortly after her death I moved to the Chattanooga Tennessee area to start a new life. I did start new life in Chattanooga. I started a new job and later got married in September 2001. In 2004, I went to work with the company that I’m presently working for today. Life has had it’s ups and downs but life goes on. In 2005 I suffered a stroke which paralyzed my left side. Determined to not to give up on life, I worked real hard to return back to work after only 30 days of hospital time. It took another two years of hard work to get my skills back on the bass to continue playing music. In 2008, I suffered another stroke. Not as severe as the first one, I continue to work full time and still play and write music. This year, I will be celebrating my 13th wedding anniversary with my wife. I continue to work full time and continue to work on my music. My newest co-writing partner is my wife Patricia.I may never get all the songs that I’ve written recorded, but I will sure give it a hell of a try. I have recorded (3) twelve song albums and have them all available! My first album Scott Sharp Some Assembly Required was originally released in 2000. It was digitally re-mastered and re-released in November 2013. It was shortly followed by Scott Sharp Mind Over Matter in November of 2013 also. My third album, Scott Sharp Bullets In The Rain was released in June of 2014. I have plans to record more albums in the future but that is all pending the sales of my present albums. I may not make it rich or famous as a independent country artist, but I will remain true to my music. I hope you will take the time to listen to my songs. If my songs can make you smile, make you cry, make laugh, or make you want to dance, I’ve done my job as a songwriter. God Bless and thank you for keeping it country!
