1989 saw the US release coast-to-coast hit album, Change, and #1 AOR single, ‘Sold Me Down the River’, from British rock band, The Alarm. Sadly, 1991 saw the surprise departure of the band’s lead singer…
Dave Sharp, co-founder of The Alarm had that previous year enlisted the help of legendary maverick record producer Bob Johnston (Dylan, Willie Nelson & Leonard Cohen) to help cut his first solo record. It was a determined young man who walked through the doors at The Hit Factory NYC in December 1990, and in under a week Sharp’s album Hard Travlin’ had been recorded, mixed and delivered for release to IRS Records.
A relentless two-year period of Stateside touring followed including appearances at Farm Aid concerts and Earth Day celebrations before Sharp returned to New York City in 1992 to perform for an audience of 25,000 gathered in Central Park to celebrate the 80th birthday of folk legend Woody Guthrie. It was a seminal event for Dave Sharp who performed alongside Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and Billy Bragg and shared the stage with The Right Reverend Jessie Jackson.
In 1996 Sharp once again teamed up with producer Bob Johnston entering Credence Clearwater Revival’s studio in San Francisco to record and release his second solo album, Downtown America. Two underground hits followed, ‘The Ghost of Preacher Casey’ and ‘Give Me Back My Job’, which both received healthy rotation across the board at American radio and led to television appearances on country music’s Nashville Network.
Sharp returned to the UK in 2002 to record his third solo album, The Power of Soul, released on Manchester’s Townsend Records, successfully re-introducing him to British audiences and earning him solo recognition across the UK with British music critics.
Dave Sharp’s solo albums have received positive critical recognition on both sides of the Atlantic and over the past decade and a half Sharp has been fortunate to work alongside many of the artists he has long respected. Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash have appeared on his recordings. He has performed alongside Kris Kristofferson, Bill Munroe and Porter Wagoner. Whether solo or with a band, guitar in hand, Dave Sharp delivers the ”Spirit of Rock & Roll.”
His music has been described as everything from folk and blues to rock, country and punk; his performances as everything from legendary to lousy. However one word can never be used to describe Dave Sharp: ”Predictable.”
Dave Sharp has embraced mainstream popular culture whilst at the same time remaining one step away from its grasp . . . he likes it that way!
‘It’s a Mighty Hard Road to be Travlin’ Down.’ Dave Sharp writes it, sings it and lives it.

Shake Appeal is back! At our new venue of everything damn right amazing that happens in our fair city, Telford’s Warehouse, Laura and I will be bringing you a mix of Indie, Rock , Alternative, Hip Hop and a sprinkling of leftfield pop classics.
Our first date is Friday 9th November and we are absolutely MADE UP to confirm that we will be accompanied by some live music; Our first headliner is the raucous and downright mind blowing experience of one of Liverpool’s finest young bands, Psycho Comedy! The gig is also bloody free if you get there before 9pm or you happen to be one of those student types and only £4 if you rock up a bit later. It’s so like you to turn up late.
Signed to legendary Liverpool institution Deltasonic, Psycho Comedy are more fully fledged art project than mere Rock and Roll band. From incorporating spoken word poetry to curating art installations and creating a dark and fascinating concept, Psycho Comedy have been compared to The Velvet Underground, Love, The Cramps and The Birthday Party amongst many others.
Support will come too from local noise pop legends Chupa Cabra. Anyone familiar with the scene in the last few years will know just how much these boys will put you off your dinner. Exploding with energy, dark humour and a vivid imagination, Chupa Cabra are an absolute blast live. This is a double header not to be missed!
Free all night with a student card or Telford’s membership.
