Grammy Award-winning songwriter Sharon Robinson has garnered critical acclaim and mesmerised audiences with her smouldering performances. In 2015 she wrote and produced her second solo album, Caffeine, a collection of new compositions encompassing soul, rhythm and blues, folk and jazz.

For thirty years, Sharon has been associated with Leonard Cohen as a co-writer, producer, and vocalist. She co-wrote and produced Cohen’s 2001 album, Ten New Songs, (one of Rolling Stone’s “Top 100 Albums of the Decade”), and co-authored the Cohen classics, Everybody Knows and Waiting for the Miracle. A Grammy-winning songwriter, Sharon’s work has been covered by artists as diverse as Patti LaBelle, Don Henley, Aaron Neville, and Roberta Flack to name a few.
