Sheryl Cohen :: I Am Olivia Brown: Current Projects











Olivia Brown: All tracks released under the name Olivia Brown are electronic based, disco/pop songs written (and performed) by Sheryl Cohen in collaboration with artists from around the world. The pseudonym Olivia Brown comes from the name of Sheryl's 1st guitar, her muse (a pink, daisy rock) named Olivia combined with the last name of Brazilian musician, icon, and Sheryl's hero Carlinhos Brown. 

Sheryl Cohen: After touring the US and Brazil for many years as the co-leader and vocalist for the Brazilian Jazz group Brazz Jazz, Sheryl made a transition to songwriting and playing the guitar. The transition began in 2005 and since then Sheryl has released more than 11 full albums and singles. 

L’Queer: L’Queer is the Brooklyn based electronic-pop duo of Neil Bowman and Sheryl Cohen. The band's name comes from an often mispronounced street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn that is spelled Luquer. L’Queer’s Debut album L’Queer Is Here was released on limited edition vinyl on April 20, 2013. L’Queer’s second album is written and ready to record.
