To Each His Own
Reflecting the eclectic styles of the band and their captivating live concerts, To Each His Own is the band's newest release. Teaming up with good friend and platinum-record recording engineer Nate Oberman, the SHB produced the 14 song album. To Each His Own carries the SHB solidly into the rock genre, while remaining loyal to the musical sincerity that has won them considerable acclaim and fanfare. In front-men and founders Andy Sharp & Ryan Harkins, the SHB has formidable songwriters, guitar players, and vocalists able to deliver elements of rock, folk, and blues into their Indie style; Colin Schaeffer & Justin Barak provide the tight beats and grooves of the heart-pounding rhythm section. Mike "Mouse" Adams, the newest addition to the group, is one of the most talented blues harmonica players in the region. Drawing from the slide guitar riffs of Ben Harper and John Butler, the Sharp & Harkins Band delivers their innovative rock sound with "an insistent up-tempo back-beat, a funk-influenced bassist, and cool, whispered lyrics," as proclaimed by the Badger Herald. As a testament to the quality and creativity of their sound, the band received multiple honors in the 2007 and 2008 Madison Area Music Awards, including Best Unique Song of the Year. The Sharp & Harkins Band performs their music with energy and vision.
