Contact Name: Sharon Von Fange
A singer/songwriter who loves to write and perform
songs that are encouraging and purposeful
In 2015 Sharon Von Fange celebrated 30 years in South Carolina, the city of Columbia to be exact. Columbia has been home not only to her family but also to the rebirth of songwriting for her. In the past 20 years, Sharon has written and performed music inspired by life experiences around her. The best writing has come about in the soil of community with others. From singer/songwriter to blues to pop, her songs cross many genres, but the unifying trait is biblical truth woven in her lyrics.
Sharon plays a variety of instruments, but the simplicity of guitar or piano is often just what is needed to provide a foundation for her lyrics and vocals to rest on.
