In 2009 Sharon Corr: violinist, composer, singer, and ex-member of the Corrs entered in this solo project, which is baring great fruit. “Dream of you” is a enthusiastic work where we can find a vast traditional Irish music influence (something so rooted in her professional and personal career) and loads of easy-going pop melodies. Classic ballads tinged by the sound of her violin like “Dream of you” , who name the album,“Butterflies” or “Real World” are one of the main ingredients of this work where Sharon show us her sweet and delicate voice. Other themes like “Mnà Na H’éireann” are not very far from The Corr’s instrumental songs that smoothly blended the elements of the most traditional celtic music with the sound of electric guitars. Another example of this last group is the groovy “Cooley’s Reel” or “Jenny’s Chicken” that remind us as well of the instrumental compositions she used to play with her siblings. Other songs like “Love me better” dive carefully and without making so much noise towards genres like “country” or soft “rock”. In conclusion, an easy going album, where of course its more attractive thing are the celtic compositions and the way they are approached to the current pop style. She is carrying on with the legacy that she and her sisters and brother created at the beginning of the 90′s and that delighted so many ears.
