Thanks for visiting davesharp.com... I am a bassist, composer, band-leader, music educator and producer living in Ann Arbor, MI. You can listen to my music here, contact me to book a performance, find out where I'm playing (and who I am playing with) or make arrangements to study music with me at the Ann Arbor Music Center. If you have a project that you'd like to record, I can engineer and produce your music at Backseat Productions in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This week I've been working on a new Dave Sharp Worlds Trio project with Sreyashi Dey, an amazing dancer who specializes in the classical Indian form of dance known as Odissi. We played live at Backseat Productions, and created a soundstage for a short video preview of our upcoming project.
