“Country Time” is the latest release from fantastic singer/songwriter and entertainer, Dane Sharp, and follows his three chart topping singles "When The Sun Goes Down", "What Would You Say?" and "Green Grass Blue". Co-written with his long-term producer, Duncan Wood (Touchwood Productions), Country Time is a crowd favourite at Dane's live shows and feels like a country rock classic that makes you want to "get your jeans and boots on and drive 'til you feel alive ... it's Country Time.
A former professional soccer player, Dane Sharp’s knee was shattered along with his dreams. However, in a life changing moment, a friend gave him an old guitar for comfort, and he was soon busking and playing backyard parties.
From there it was a natural progression to open mic nights, restaurants then bars and touring trips out west, also playing in a duo “Country Bound” honing his Country rhythms.
Dane played a series of shows in Nashville and worked with some of country music’s leading songwriters and musicians, such as Luann Reid (Kenny Chesney) and Brett Manning (Keith Urban) before signing to Touchwood Productions in 2007 and beginning his collaboration with music and video producer/songwriter, Duncan Wood.
Dane’s debut album - ”Nothing to Lose” (available on all streaming platforms) - had five popular radio singles from the album, followed by several popular singles since then, including “One Way Ride” which charted on Country Radio nationally.
Dane has performed at the Tamworth, Mildura, Urban Country and Ballina Country Music Festivals, the mainstage at the Groundwater Country Music Festival and supported Paul Kelly at the Rockin’ The Rainforest Festival along with numerous pubs and clubs around the country. 2023 markers a new chapter in Dane’s exciting and varied musical career and will continue to bring lots more from this talented artist.
