Abrielle Scharff Holiday Show at Book & Bar!
Abrielle Scharff is a twenty-something who would love to stop hearing women being placed in a fake genre known as female singer-songwriter. Unless were going to start calling John Mayer a male singer-songwriter. Then, its okay.
The charming powerhouse grew up in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. While her friends were listening to Disney lullabies from their car seats, she was cutting her teeth on The Beatles and Buddy Holly. Music is the lifeblood of many in her family. Every year around Christmastime, shed hear her great-grandmother, Carol Richards singing Silver Bells with Bing Crosby in Macys. The Scharff Brothers, Abrielles father and uncle, also made music inevitably infectious. Her uncle taught her three chords on the guitar and she wrote her first song that day. Once she made a name for herself on the seacoast, Abrielle paved her way onto bigger stomping grounds- and baby steps are not in her vocabulary.
Abrielle has since played venues such as 3S Artspace (Portsmouth), Hard Rock Cafe (Boston), Pianos, The West End Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, and Mercury Lounge (New York City). Abrielle has opened for bigger artists including Julie Byrne and Victoria Canal. Shes studied with major names like former VP of creative at Warner Chappell, Judy Stakee. She placed in the top ten of the Brandi Carlile Cover Stories competition and was runner-up in the Coffee Music Project competition, which led her to perform at major events such as the New York and London Coffee Festival. Her smooth vocal timbre is that of Norah Jones, her genuine lyrics alike to Brandi Carlile, and her stage presence comparable to Stevie Knicks. Abrielle makes even her most personal stories relatable. Her sound will remind you of Phoebe Bridgers, Kacey Musgraves, and Fleetwood Mac all at once.
Abrielle is stoked to be back at B&B for her third annual holiday show. She is welcoming back beloved guests such as Sam Robbins, Max Grazier, and The Scharff Brothers. This is one that only happens once a year and one you definitely dont want to miss!
