Grammy-winning songwriter Sharon Robinson has announced the release of her second solo album, Caffeine, (April 7th, 2015). The sophomore record, a follow up to the stunning debut Everybody Knows in 2008, mixes
R&B, soul, jazz and pop and unifies them with Sharon's sensual and soulful sound. "I kept air in the arrangements. I wanted the record to sound organic and true," says Sharon, who also wrote and produced. Tracks include: "Driftwood" - a metaphor for contemporary life, "Safe" - a statement of the power of love over fear and "Lucky", co-written with Leonard Cohen, and never previously recorded - beautiful in its purity and simplicity.
On March 30th, Sharon began her first-ever solo tour of Europe, in support of Caffeine. Her eight-date tour will pass through Antwerp, London, Glasgow, Dublin, Hamburg, Koln, Paris, and Amsterdam.
