Shari Puorto & Shari Puorto Band:
“Many of us anxiously wait to hear a voice that resonates throughout our entire body. When listening to Shari Puorto sing, you can actually feel her voice. Yeah, she’s that good.” “When Shari delivers a hard driving blues tune or a soft intimate ballad, you feel her passion and message that the songs were meant to share.” Neil Caplin - iJamar Magazine
“Switching up sounds like a musical Swiss Army knife, Shari Puorto’s band gives the internationally traveled vocalist shredding rock riffs to which she belts like Benatar and smooth blues rhythm she accompanies with McLachlan-like harmony.” Monterey County Weekly
Breaking out as a National Artist, gaining momentum from Coast to Coast and abroad, Shari currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
Shari Puorto is “a soulful singer with a sexy and raspy sound. Like Joplin, Puorto is a passionate performer with an energy that can rattle the foam in a pint of Pilsner.” Kevin, Pubclub.com.
Shari is an award-winning Blues/Rock/Roots singer/songwriter, who has been performing professionally since early 2000. Shari has performed continuously all over California across the U.S and abroad. You would think Shari’s been doing this forever. She has the sensibility of an old soul reborn and is undeniably passionate. She possesses a deeply expressive and soulful voice; one that catches you off guard. She is a powerful and dynamic live performer who quickly and quite naturally connects with her audience. Her infectious enthusiasm overcomes you, you have no choice but to get pulled in. (She’s likely to steal your heart if you get too close!)
