Sharon DiFronzo – Bio
With the steeple of the Old North Church hovering above in her native North End of Boston neighborhood, Sharon “Ozelis” DiFronzo began what would be her lifelong career in music many years ago at the tender age of 9, starring in several musical theater productions a block away from her home. But being an avid record collector even then with her small allowance, it wasn’t long before her love for pop and soul music enticed her to join her first cover band during her teens, and without taking a glance back since.
During the last 40+ years, Sharon has paved a steady and relentless musical path throughout New England performing with general business & cover bands at function, restaurant and club venues, including The Esplanade in Boston and the “Boston Garden/Fleet Center” singing the National Anthem for sporting events.
Always a writer, Sharon incorporated this skill into her career 20 years ago, co-writing an album of original songs which was released on Screamin’ Heart Records, her own label, with the standout single “I’ll Think of You That Way” in memory of her late brother, receiving airplay on various local and international stations. In addition, she has performed as part of recording studio demo projects, as well as several radio jingles, including the one for “Rite Window”, presently heard on radio and television.
A few years back, Sharon was named as one of Magic 106.7’s “Exceptional Women” and also sang her way to her spot as 4-star finalist on the New York based television show “Community Auditions”, 35 years after she originally performed on the 1970’s local version of the show. For the past 3 ½ years,
Sharon has also worked as a Vocal Instructor at the Real School of Music in Burlington, MA, has a new album in the works slated for release in March of 2017, and continues to share her heartfelt and passionate vocal performances with audiences everywhere, until, as she vows “her vocal chords stop working, and most likely will be no longer breathing.” We believer her.
