Dane Sharp

Dane SharpA former professional soccer player, Dane Sharp’s knee was shattered along with his dreams. However, in a life changing moment, a friend gave him an old guitar for comfort and he was soon busking and playing backyard parties.

From there it was a natural progression to open mic nights, restaurants then bars and touring trips out west, also playing in a duo “Country Bound” honing his Country rhythms.

Dane played a series of shows in Nashville and worked with some of country music’s leading songwriters and musicians, such as Luann Reid (Kenny Chesney) and Brett Manning (Keith Urban) before signing to Touchwood Productions in 2007. His debut album Nothing to Lose is available to order in all good record stores and to download from iTunes and his first three clips (Nothing to Lose, Alone in the RSL and Blue Skies) are currently airing on CMC. Dane has also had five popular radio singles from the album and 2011/2012 will see him do more shows and tours with label-mates Caroline Taylor-Knight & Jessica Townsend for Touchwood Productions to support his New 2nd Album Titled, "One Way Ride".  Nominated for Rising Star Male in the Southern Stars last year 2011/12 are sure to be big years for this talented artist.
