James Alan Nowell

I started performing early, singing with my sister accompanying on piano around age 4. I began the clarinet in school band around age 13 and added saxophone during my freshman year in college in 1974. After graduation I went on the road with a show band named The Spurrlows for about 4 years, left the road and got a public school teaching job. I taught for about a year before returning to the road with a contemporary Christian group called TRUTH. After leaving, I returned home, got married, and eventually moved to Lynchburg Va to work with Dr. Jerry Falwell at Thomas Road Baptist Church and the Liberty Broadcasting Network

She hascontinued to study with the great Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton in New York City. Her knack for choosing material that is perfectly suited to her is uncanny. Her set list includes unfamiliar, modern compositions, as well as standards ranging back to the 1920’s. Sharon’s delivery is highly personal and direct
