Writer of the Grammy-Award winning, "Something To Talk About", as well as a two-time Juno Award and multi-BMI Award winner, Shirley Eikhard is the "real deal"... a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, publisher and record producer with a world-class talent to back it up.
Born in Sackville, New Brunswick and now living in Ontario, Canada, she loves her Canadian roots and over the past 43 years, has travelled the world both as a performer and writer. Her songs have been covered by the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Cher, Anne Murray, and Ginette Reno to name but a few of the incredible artists who have enjoyed success with her writing and Shirley has written well over 500 songs to date. As a recording vocalist, her style encompasses pop, jazz and shades of rhythm and blues.
Shirley is a veteran musician who plays various instruments; guitar, piano, bass, drums, percussion, chromatic harmonica and sax. Over the past decade, she has added dobro, banjo and mandolin to the mix. She loves a challenge and picking up a new instrument helps shape her songwriting skills and keeps her inspiration flowing. Her last eight CDs have been completely performed and sung by Shirley in her home studio in Hockley Valley, Ontario, Canada.
Shirley's songs have appeared in numerous international films and television shows and among them, she has sung theme songs for two movies, "The Domino Principle" and "The Passion Of Ayn Rand" featuring Oscar-award winning Helen Mirren. Her latest CD release, "Dream Of A Perfect Day" (2012) is a collection of pop and bossa nova songs composed during 2011 that reflect her love of nature and intriguing observations on the human condition.
