Come to Norman Central for an intimate show from the headliners of Jazz in June!

A native Chicagoan, Isaiah Sharkey spent his early years living in with his parents in a row house on a street that is now named for Curtis Mayfield. Coming from a musical household, Isaiah was introduced to music at the age of four.  Learning music under the close introduction of his father, he would learn about different musical genres/styles from gospel music, which came from growing up in the church, to jazz, R&B, blues, rock and funk music.  It wasn't long after that Isaiah would become noticed by other musicians in the Chicago area for being a young, new talent.   He started his recording career and served as a sideman for gospel artists and toured as lead guitarist with Ronald Isley and recorded two albums with him.  In 2009, Isaiah started working with artist D'Angelo on his third album, Black Messiah, which won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album.  Based on his work and contribution to the project, Isaiah received his first Grammy. Isaiah Sharkey fuses together his background in rock, gospel, jazz, R&B, blues, and funk to create an original sound with an unmistakable dose of soul. 

Come to the Norman Library for an intimate show from Isaiah and all the Jazz in June headliners - and don't miss your chance to talk directly with Isaiah!
