"When she performs her trumpet in a head scarf and sunglasses the entire audience is taken into a trance and it's like she's grabbing their hand in a kamikaze embrace, leading them to surrender to that moment of bliss and sensuality; it is a true rock show." Allegedly, she is a difficult girl, those close to her know, "she is an intense champion for her vision; that passion runs hot for Sharon." The direct and driving pursuit pays off, for when she's on stage, she wanes into a state of otherworldly charm with depth and expression in her soaring vocals and pulsing bass guitar. The entire band rides in tandem with their raw grit and flawless execution of the funky grooves. Guitarist, and backing vocalist, Nicklas Hamilton, is Sharon's songwriting partner and co-conspirator in Kink Ador. Nicklas is a rock and roll soldier and barbarian. His guitar playing in the studio is so melodic and fresh to your ear that it's like you are hearing rock guitar for the very first time, it is intoxicating, and at the same time funky like guitarists John Frusciante or Andy Summers.
Nicklas on guitar, and Sharon on vocals and bass, and the rest of the rhythm section, support guitar and drums, create what is Kink Ador. The songwriting team is Sharon and Nicklas. The live band is a 4-piece: 2 guitars, bass, and drums, sometimes augmented by additional sax and trumpet. Kink Ador has been rocking the scene touring through the Midwest, South, and Northeast since late 2009. Specifically Kink Ador has garnered big buzz in New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Nashville, with TV appearances in Chicago and Atlanta, and they have an upcoming club residency in New York City in the fall of 2011.
The band appeared on JBTV Chicago, in November 2009, and their performance has been in regular rotation on the show, along with the Smashing Pumpkins, the Dandy Warhols, No Doubt, and countless other National headliners. The band's premier music video "Animal" won multiple film festival awards including: 2010 Honolulu Film Festival: Best Music Video, Honolulu, HI, and 2010 Mountain Film Festival -Sierra Nevada award: Best Music Video, Los Angeles, CA. The video has attracted national attention because of the film fest wins, and was featured on the Fuse On Demand Music Channel. The song Animal was also included in a promotion for the Google Android phone. Kink Ador has their song Animal for game play in the video game "Rock Band 3" with proceeds going to the American Red Cross. Socially active in helping charities, Kink Ador has performed at benefits for Haiti, Sudan, the Second Harvest Food Bank, AIDS relief, and the United Way. At the end of the day though, it all comes down to the sounds and the songs.
The collaboration between strong rhythms, positive lyrics, and classic testosterone filled guitar are what makes Kink Ador different and so real. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
