Sherry Marchefsky, a native of Pottsville, PA, has come full circle. For the last three years, she’s been presenting her symphonic collection back home from Louisiana in Pennsylvania. Beginning at the age of 3, she was classically trained on the piano but her perpetual need for expression compelled her to start writing and composing.
Sherry completed her secondary education at Full Sail (Orlando, FL) in Audio Engineering. During this time she participated and prevailed in a regional talent contest granting her a vocal position on a Dance Compilation CD for Fitzgerald Mystic Records. Upon her graduation from Full Sail, she worked for ABC News, Fox News, and National Public Radio in Washington D.C. She recorded a four song demo in Studio 4A at NPR in 2003. The recording caught the attention of Howard Rosen Promotions (Hollywood, Ca) and was showcased on college radio stations throughout the U.S. and Canada. “Nick of Time” charted #1 in Long Beach, CA while “Another Valium Day” charted #1 in Manhattan, NY. Sherry is currently working with Song Placements (Los Angeles, Ca) to expose her music to the Movie/Film circuit. She also obtained Jägermeister and Yuengling sponsorships in 2009.
She has over 100 shows booked each year, with 2010 having over 150, at crazy college bars, fine dining establishments, festivals, VIP parties, country clubs, casinos, etc….
Sherry’s ability to adapt to the venue environment leaves her audiences always satisfied. She books her own shows, and is currently seeking representation through a promotions agency to obtain larger venues and a larger demographic. She books 2 types of shows: Solo Act – “Sherry”, Duo Act – using guitar players from local rock groups. The shows follow the set lists of the “Party Bands”, doing mostly modern rock covers. There are over 125 cover songs she rotates in the shows ranging from Lady Gaga, Metallica, Aerosmith, Jewel, Offspring, Sarah McLachlan, Janis Joplin & more…
Sherry’s eclectic style and untamed lyrics are the medium for which this singer/songwriter delivers her remarkable anthems rooted in jazz, rock, and soul. She continually captivates audiences with a clever balance of both original and cover music. Sherry is currently in the studio recording her Album, which is scheduled for release in April 2011.
Sherry will be doing music reviews for the PA Music Scene.com
