The Dutch singer Kovacs, on the full name Sharon Kovacs, is one of the richest and most powerful blues and soul voices of our time. The shaven-headed chanteuse hiding the voice of a soul legend beneath her fluffy bear hood, Sharon Kovacs is an enigmatic phenomenon that started to rise in 2014, with an EP entitled „My Love, partly recorded in Cuba, was an instant European hit, even reaching Number One in Greece. Kovacs debut album, „Shades Of Black”, charted in 36 countries, making the „Top Ten” in Germany and hitting Number One in her Dutch homeland. Her second album ‘Cheap Smell’ is one of the most open, honest and inspired future soul albums of the decade, named after her last pre-fame band and – like her debut – out to find the positive in life’s toughest turns. Pulling no punches in tackling the light and shade of modern relationships, it’s a series of confessionals about wild love and abusive romantic webs, about hedonism and addiction, which follows Sharon’s rough emotional rollercoaster over the past few years. Her songs and powerful deep voice quickly brought her Sixty million YouTube views, a modelling contract with Viva Paris, a clutch of awards, a Robbie Williams support slot and high-profile sets at major festivals.
