about

Not Blue is a song of empowerment that was inspired by Sharon’s own frustration at some of the situations in her life. “I wrote the song as a way of addressing these and moving on and in doing so imagined my frustrations as evil spirits that could be chased away” said Sharon.

Not Blue features Sharon on vocals and ukulele and she is joined by some very talented musicians and friends who orchestrate the song with piano, accordion, violin, double bass and backing vocals. Damon and Kate Bridge (Owl in the Sun) and Lukas Drinkwater (Jacob and Drinkwater, Ange Hardy). A broken shoulder in January this year gave her unexpected time to really think about the instrumentation and arrangements of her songs and she is currently recording her eagerly anticipated debut solo album, Half Shame and Half Glory, at Orchard Studios in Somerset.

lyrics

Not Blue

No you won’t have me, I’ll be fine you see
I’m gonna chase you away, I’m gonna chase you away
No you’re not gonna stay in my head
Many moons ago, then I thought I’d know
What was true but it’s not true
I’m not gonna be blue for you
I’m not blue, I’m not blue
Though you can’t be seen, I feel what you mean
Whatever you do, whatever you do
I’m not gonna be blue over you
No you won’t have me, for I have been set free
I’ve chased you away, I’ve chased you away
No you’re not gonna stay, cos you’ve been spirited away
