Sherri Sandifer, a native Houstonian, is classically trained in piano and flute and has been writing songs most of her life. She expanded her musical interests as a student at Yale University when
she sang with Shades, an a capella singing group which is known for its R&B, pop, and gospel repertoire and its memorable choreography. During her years with Shades as a performer,
musical director, and songwriter, the group’s following expanded widely. After college, music remained an important part of Sherri’s life, as she continued to write and perform at venues such as Yale commencement ceremonies, corporate functions, and professional sporting events.
Sherri’s vocal and songwriting influences include Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Michael McDonald, and Quincy Jones. Sherri extended her musical journey with the release of her highly anticipated debut album titled loverevolution. Loverevolution spawned two hit singles, Don’t Call Me” and “If You Knew Me At All” that dominated Billboard Singles sales and radio charts in the Urban and Adult Urban Contemporary categories for weeks, peaking at #3 on the R&B/Hip Hop Singles Chart. “If You Knew Me At All” had the rare distinction of holding chart positions on three separate Billboard charts at the same time, and remaining on the top 40 chart for radio airplay. The album’s songs are soulful, universal, and timeless. The album was produced by Grammy award winner Dru Castro, who has recorded with such artists as india.arie, Usher, Mary J. Blige, and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.
