Sheryl Cohen (AKA Olivia Brown): Current Projects

Three Current Projects

Olivia Brown (Collaborations w/ Electronic Artists & DJs) All tracks released under the name Olivia Brown are electronic based songs written in collaboration with artists and DJs from around the world. The name Olivia Brown comes from the combination of Sheryl's 1st guitar/muse named Olivia and the Brazilian musician/inspiration, Carlinhos Brown.

’Olivia Brown's 'Love Saves The Day' possesses a thorax-pumping dance beat, memorable chorus and vocal style reminiscent of the great Chaka Khan; sure to excite dance fans all over the globe.’

(The Akademia)

L’Queer (Brooklyn Based Duo) L’Queer is the Brooklyn based electo-pop duo of Neil Bowman and Sheryl Cohen. The band's name comes from an often mis-pronounced street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn that is spelled Luquer. L’Queer’s Debut album L’Queer Is Here was nominated for two grammy awards in the first round for the 2014 - 56th Annual Grammy Awards: Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. L’Queer Is Here was released on limited edition vinyl at a party in Brooklyn on April 20, 2013. L’Queer’s second album is written and ready to record.

Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist (Solo Work) 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 of original music. Four of Sheryl’s compositions were included on the album Nomad (2015) released by Brazilian guitarist/singer Rubens de La Corte. Sheryl appears as a specil guest on the album for one song. Grammy winner, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Angelique Kidjo appears as a special guest singer on one of Sheryl's songs.
