Sharon Goldman’s several well-received albums (including 2016's KOL ISHA/A Woman's Voice, which was named one of the Top 10 Folk Albums of 2016 by WFDU's Ron Olesko) she has combined heartfelt portraits and memorable lyrics with unforgettable melodies and pure, precise, expressive vocals — taking a folk/pop sensibility to new artistic heights.
