Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Sharratt grew up listening to his parents’ record collection – heavy on guitar greats such as Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. By the time Sharratt picked up the guitar at age 15, he had stockpiled a versatile catalogz of influences which now included singer-songwriters such as Dave Matthews and John Mayer. While enrolled in university, a chance encounter with members of the acoustic rock band Flannel Jimmy led Sharratt to set aside his scholastic endeavours and record his first two albums “Incomplete” and “Blueprint”, with Flannel Jimmy’s drummer Ryan Stewart at the helm. The latter album earned 5 Vancouver Island Music Award nominations, winning one for Male Vocalist of the Year.
Sharratt has earned a reputation as a memorable and soulful live act. His 2010 live album ‘Six Feet Above’ drew a VIMA Songwriter of the Year nomination and a Top 20 nod for 104.3 FM The Shore’s ‘Sounds of Summer’ contest.
