THE SHARLEEN LINTON, HISTORY:
Sharleen Linton is the Director of My Vocal Therapy. A holistic vocal coaching company, bringing every element together to release the voice's potential - the mind, the body and our inner core.
After 10 years of doing backing vocals, Sharleen Linton is finally stepping out of the background and into the beautiful light!
A journey to creat the Soulful Folk EP she's working on, entitled 'Peace of Mind' and performances!
Charleen worked with so many artists; Il Divo, Craig David, Natasha Bedingfield, Adele (Live at The Royal Albert Hall in 2011), Jeff Lynne's ELO (Children in Need Rocks 2013) and had some incredible experiences.
After spending much of her early singing career in gospel choirs, Sharleen Linton has become one of pop and music’s most sort after session vocalists.
She absolutely loves being a singer, being part of a tour or a DVD, even a one off gig – it’s just so special. She really enjoyed being in the background actually. She enjoyed supporting artists. She enjoyed those little things to make that track to make things extra special.
Sharleen played with Children in Need Rocks 2013, when Jeff Lynne's ELO played among other artists.
