Sharon released her first CD "Alive" in 2006 followed by a sacred chant CD, "Chants for Peace" in 2011 and her newest release for 2016 is titled "Octave of Love". Octave of Love features music that reaches across generations and touches people through a variety of musical genres, lyrics, and eternal messages of love and connection.
“ If you love authentic music, listen to Sharon Silverstein’s new album ‘Octave of Love’. The combination of her roots as a Western Folk/Rock singer with her ever-evolving love affair with Eastern mysticism makes for a compelling musical brew and uplifting spiritual journey.” GuruGanesha- Devotional Musician and Mantra Hipster
Sharon picked up the guitar at the age of nine and began learning classical guitar and voice. Her musical education continued with her studies at Rutgers University where she learned to play all the band instruments. This led her to a fifteen year career as a NJ certified music teacher and middle school band director.
At a very early age, Sharon felt called to express her voice through songwriting and continued to compose original music throughout her career as a way to express emotion and cleanse childhood trauma. In 2002, Sharon had her first experience with yoga. She was inspired by the chanting and began Bhakti, the path of devotion.
In addition to being a professional singer/songwriter, Sharon also is a practitioner of Sound Yoga, certified Yoga instructor, motivational speaker, life coach, certified parent educator, certified music teacher and the founder and president of the NJ based company, Living At Peace, LLC. Living At Peace provides programs so communities, families, and individuals can have deeper, stronger and more sustainable relationships. Sharon holds a BM in Music from Rutgers University. She presents workshops and programs for teachers, parents, children, and adults of all ages internationally. Her work has been featured on local cable television, international radio programs, in local and county newspapers, and in national magazines.
