Think of poetry fused with music with a beat...with a twist of lime. I like my music raw. It's all about the lyrics to me....I would call my music "inner landscape" music, if there were a genre called that. My songs are written from life's experiences......happy, sad, elated, lonely, joyful, bitter, sweet, or a combination of all the above.

My favorite saying has long been:
"True maturity is knowing when to be immature!"

Sharon Grace Routley bio
"I first picked up a guitar about 5 years ago and thought "Where have you been all my life?" Learning someone else's covers was way too much work, and it just didn't meld with me. I started writing songs like they'd been there all long, they just hadn't materialized. ...I try to capture at least a little heart and soul of the things that life has shown me. If there were such a genre, my music could be called "inner landscape music."
Sharon's songs are raw....lyric -driven acoustic music along with a hand drum, giving it a cool beatnik vibe. For the last couple of years, she has performed both solo and as a duo called "dazeofgrace" across southern British Columbia. She has just released a CD November 2006 self titled "Sharon Grace Routley."
My thoughts on life could kinda be summed up as follows:
What if there is more to life than what meets the eye,
What if life is like a hologram turned to the side...
What if things in the mirror are not quite what they appear....
What if saints turn to sinners, sinners to saints,
Guilt turns to innocence, innocence to guilt,
What if those drinking in knowledge are dying of thirst.
What if the first shall be last, the last shall be first.....
The Truth stood before for all to see, silently......waiting for me...
Nothing to say, what more could be said..
It speaks against the Voices......inside of my head.
