Ja, Sharron Levy war mal bei „The Voice Of Germany“ und ihr gelang damals der Einzug ins Halbfinale! Man kann zu solchen Wettbewerben stehen wie man will, aber Fact ist, dass ohne diese Show der musikalische Lebensweg von Sharron einen anderen Verlauf genommen hätte. Aktuell, im Hier und Jetzt, geht es aber nicht mehr um Castings, sondern um ihren ersten Longplayer und den Mut einer Künstlerin, gegen den Strom zu schwimmen.

Unter der Regie von Derek von Krogh als Produzent und Bassist und der Unterstützung erfahrener Musiker wie John Andrews (Gitarre) und Philipp Palm (Schlagzeug), spielte sie, in Dereks Studio 77 in Stuttgart, zwölf leidenschaftliche und sehr rockige Tracks ein. Und es ging ihr dabei keineswegs darum, die Rockwelt neu zu erfinden.

In Sharrons Worten: „I am not trying to break any boundaries or create anything new in the music industry, this is simply honest lyrics and music that come from personal experiences.“

Sie lässt es dabei gehörig krachen. Mit Hilfe ihrer versierten Mitstreiter und deren geballter musikalischer „Raw Power“, verbiegt sich Sharron nie vor dem Mainstream, offenbart Einflüsse von Joan Jett bis Etheridge. Und das in einer solch kompromisslosen Weise, welche alle, die denken, hier handelt es sich um ein „TV-Glamour-Produkt“, eines Besseren belehrt. Und auch wenn nicht jeder Newcomer-Künstler ein solches Umfeld sein Eigen nennen kann, sagt es doch eine Menge über Sharron’s musikalische Qualitäten und Einstellung aus.

Und so entstand „Rough Ready“. Ein Album, das Sharron Levys komplette Reise bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt erzählt. Mit Songs, die nicht erst im Studio unter der Anleitung prominenter Profis entstanden sind, sondern ihre eigene Geschichte erzählen und im Laufe der Jahre mitreifen durften. Und es handelt von einer Künstlerin, die niemals aufgegeben hat, sondern einfach ihr Ding durchzieht. Wie bereits zu Anfang gesagt – es geht hier nicht um Castings.

    Still Here

    • Lyrics

      STILL HERE
      Search for me I'll be in the back you'll see
      Searching on 'cause me and you we both got things to do
      I know I guess I miss you too
      One for all and all for one is true
      Sorry I didn’t keep you down

      And if only I let you go
      Then you would know
      I'm still here I
      And if only I let you go
      then you would know I'm still here

      Search for me I'll be in the front you'll see
      Living on 'cause me and you we didn't have a clue
      Kept on no matter what to do
      Talked and talked but nothing worked for you
      I'm done

      I'm still here for you now

    Let Me Hear You Scream

    • Lyrics

      LET ME HEAR YOU SCREAM
      I don't drink and I don't smoke
      That don't mean that I don't rock
      Now scream hey yeah
      I said scream hey yeah

      I can’t say what’s right or wrong
      I just know that I belong right here
      Hey yeah I said here

      Oh let me hear you give some more
      Lets hear what you've got to say
      I know that there's so much more
      So let it out don't hold it back and scream

      Hey yeah
      Let me hear you say what‘s on your mind
      Hey yeah
      Let me see what you can really find
      Hey yeah
      Don't you keep it back don't try to fight now
      Hey yeah....
      Let me hear you scream

      I know love and I know fear
      When the wrong one gets too near I scream
      Hey yeah get away from here
      I don't hold back or grab my front
      I know who I am and what I want
      Well I’m free hey yeah I’m free to be me

    Save My Laughter

    • Lyrics

      SAVE MY LAUGHTER
      Think of all the things you never want to say to me
      I’ll tell you what I’ll do for you for me
      I’ll tell you all the things I always want to say to you
      It’s something that you need to hear from me

      I’m sinking lower than I’ve ever felt I’ve sank before
      Why don’t you even care for me for me
      I kind of like it in a stupid way that I can’t see
      All my energy to me to me

      Save my laughter let it out
      Take my suffering and out
      Give me a chance to scream and shout
      Don’t care what just make it fucking loud
      Save my laughter let it out
      Take my suffer in and out
      Give me a chance to scream and shout
      Don’t care what just make it fucking loud

      Nothing’s happening and it’s killing me so painfully
      Time is moving on and on and on
      I’m sitting thinking all the things that I could always be
      But it’s not happening to me to me

      I’m trying to make a difference in the world I’m living in
      Well that’s a fucking joke on me on me
      Take my life and energy away from all I see
      And so the pressure’s off from me from me

      Save my Laughter
      ‘cause I can’t find away
      Hold me closer take me over
      ‘cause I can’t carry on
      I don’t want me you can have me
      ‘cause I can’t find a way

    Psycho State

    • Lyrics

      PSYCHO STATE
      Don't start looking I've got your back
      Contemplating that's what you want
      Mind trick playing a single track
      I'm not looking take what you want

      Voices shouting right from the start
      Action playing hate and regret
      Obscene thoughts that don't bring you down
      I'm not looking take what you want

      Stay far from me
      When you're in
      Your psycho state

      Don't stop trying to hurt me back
      I'm enjoying your lame attempts
      Keep on falling down off the tracks
      I'll be smiling when you collapse

      Did you think that you'd scare me off
      With a phone call and a fuck off
      I'm still standing all on my own
      I'm not listening say what you want

      Feel and you know I can hide
      I can always forgive
      I just need you to try

    Carrying My Emotions

    • Lyrics

      CARRYING MY EMOTIONS
      I feel like breaking down
      I feel like sinking into myself
      Don’t try to understand don’t try to translate what I said
      Maybe there is no problem and it’s all just in my head
      Or maybe the solution is to fix it all instead

      I’m carrying my emotions
      I’m splitting all my devotions
      I’m sinking in to myself again

      Up down it's all around
      I cannot seem to find my escape
      Let it all out
      Just forget everything that I said
      Maybe there is no problem
      And it’s all just in my head
      Or maybe the solution is to get back in my bed

    Just You And Me

    • Lyrics

      JUST YOU AND ME
      Here’s a story that we all have heard before
      It was a weekend and it turned out to be so much more
      We tried to sober up and carry on with life
      But things had changed there was a different glow a different light

      And so I called and you ignored
      But I fought and fought
      And kept my hold

      And I said
      Hey you know I’m in love with you
      Say no and I will fight for you
      Don’t go you know it’s meant to be
      Just you and me

      You said to get away as this would never work
      And I’m a scorpio and all they do is charm and hurt
      But then you rang and asked me when I’m coming round
      You need to see me need to feel the thing that we had found
      We ignored the whole wide world
      And you said

    Drowning (Album Version)

    • Lyrics

      DROWNING (album version)
      Hold me
      You said you‘d never let go
      Now you
      Are saying that you don't know
      Baby
      I can‘t believe it’s happening
      Help me please
      You know that I am drowning

      Wow what a surprise
      I never saw this coming all those lows and highs
      So you came into my life and turned me upside down
      When I‘m with you my pain goes numb

      Listen to me when I tell you now
      I know that I sometimes act the clown
      But I know when something is for real
      Don‘t you feel

      We've had some time but not enough
      We sit and talk and cry and laugh
      We've walked the park and swam the lake
      What else is it going to take

    UFO

    • Lyrics

      UFO
      UFOs are shiny they take my friends away
      UFOs are shiny and I’m OK

      Hold me down to
      Take me by the river
      Beam me up through
      Race my blood so deeper
      Find my breathing
      Show me my upbringing
      Check my meaning
      No there’s no beginning

      I didn't come from here
      Hold me down and strip me when you question me
      Roam around and see what you can find in me

      Creep on to me
      Freak me out with your fingers
      Blue heads glowing
      Years of knowledge flowing
      Yes we’re foolish
      Wise enough to know it
      I have one wish
      Take me to your planet

    Let Me Do My Thing

    • Lyrics

      Let Me Do My Thing
      I got it clear that I want you near don‘t care what anybody says
      I can be sure that we're so pure because we're speaking honestly
      I need some inspiration a moment of creation

      Let me do my rock n roll
      Let me do my song and soul
      Let me do my thing don't tell me that
      Don‘t try to hold me back

      I try to adapt but I end up flat without a moment of emotion
      I don't wanna complain but I am trying to explain
      That some things can not be so planned
      I need some information to shake my hesitation

    Spider's Roar

    • Lyrics

      SPIDER’S ROAR
      Ask me for time and I’ll give you none
      Ask me for love and I’ll give you less

      Forgive me well I’m a little busy now
      Giving time and love
      Given to myself

      Don’t get me wrong
      Don’t turn me in
      I can be what you say I am
      I’m not listening turning you in
      I can be and will be what you say

      Sometime worse but always bad
      All of those things I wish I had

    Rhythm In My Head

    • Lyrics

      RHYTHM IN MY HEAD
      I'm lying on my bed rhythm in my head
      Tap my foot instead but I can't get free
      Trying not to think trying not to be
      Clearing out my mind from these melodies

      I can't explain who made up this funny game that we call reality
      I'm trying to connect trying to create
      Put ideas ahead just re memeber me

      And it seems to me so beautiful
      And it seems to be so magical

      Many things I've learnt moments I have earned
      To win and to get burnt is not so difficult
      The answers are all free for you and me to see
      It’s meant to be easy but we never look

      I can't explain who made up this funny game that tells you there's always more
      One day I hope to see what I feel is in me it's more than just being free
      I hear it's simple

      Now it seems to be bigger than anything I've seen
      I'm not being weird you know what I mean
      A power a force that screams from within
      It's so far away do you know what I mean

      I have no advice I guess just don't think twice
      Why would you revise what comes naturally
      I'll be reading all these books writing some new hooks
      Changing different looks to discover me

      Ta da ta ta ta ......

    The London Story

    • Lyrics

      THE LONDON STORY
      We said we would meet on a London street
      I hoped you would come and wouldn't get cold feet
      You came in by taxi I came on the train it seemed so natural
      Not at all insane

      I saw you from a distance
      You looked like in the pictures
      I won't forget it I know I've said it
      You looked so tall and so damn beautiful
      I couldn't speak couldn't get our eyes to meet

      And I feel I'm in love with you
      I don't know what I'm gonna do
      But I feel that you love me too
      So I know that we'll make it through

      So I looked at the floor and I tried to ignore
      My silly sleeveless jacket and the shoes that I wore
      You looked like the movies like a Hollywood star
      I went for my back up and spoke about guitars

      We went to a bar and I played my guitar
      I wanted to impress you I wanted to get close to you
      We laughed and we flirted we drank and dared to get
      Closer then we should much more than we thought we could

      Some time has passed I guess it went fast
      So much has happened I struggle to grasp
      How much we've been though for me and for you
      The journey is crazy it had nothing to do
      With the time that we met or the things that we said
      We stuck together and just didn't let
      Anything get us or anyone tell us
      We had each other our love was enough

      I still look at the floor and I try to ignore my
      Funny looking house and my picture less wall
      Because it’s just matter not really what counts
      How much I love you is endless amounts
