WCL House Concerts Series
While we're still unable to welcome you into our house, we're excited to present a series of virtual WCL House Concerts with a nod to the centuries-old tradition! We've invited some of your favorite Philly-area artists, many of whom have played our stages countless times over the years, to share their music. These intimate livestream concerts will premiere on our YouTube channel, directly from the artists' homes to yours.
WCL House Concerts will be FREE to watch, but we hope you'll consider making a donation to support independent live music. Click "Add to Cart" to RSVP for a reminder email with the stream link, where you can also make an optional donation of any amount. All donations will be split between the artist and World Cafe Live. World Cafe Live is a nonprofit and all donations are tax-deductible.
Born in 1980 in the small Pennsylvania town of North Wales, Sharon Little began to write music at the age of sixteen, performing her songs at local cafes and talent shows. Years of hard work singing and songwriting reached a crescendo in 2006, when she met Grammy award-winning songwriter Scot Sax. Together they wrote the album, Perfect Time For A Breakdown, catching the attention of CBS records. Then, in the spring of 2008, T- Bone Burnett, Robert Plant, and Allison Krauss handpicked Sharon to be the opener for the Raising Sands tour. This would be the first of many national tours for Sharon; over the next several years she toured with Jonny Lang, Chris Isaac, Pat Benatar and Al Green, to name but a few.
Beyond touring, Sharon's music has been splashed across television: NCIS, The Good Wife, Ghost Whisperer, Numbers, CSI:NY, Sons of Anarchy, The Cleaner, and Novel Adventures; her music has known no bounds. There is no clearer truth of this than the wide range of shows she has contributed to. The same can be said of print media. Sharon has been interviewed by Rolling Stone, The Philadelphia Inquirer, USA Today, Billboard, and many more.
Through tours, television, and print, Sharon gained fans across America. It wasn't long before her gritty, honest, and soulful sound enamored fans and won hearts all over the country and world. In 2011, CBS records decided not to release Paper Doll, enabling Sharon to move forward in her own direction.
After entering a period of self-release and reinvention, she took stock of her trials and successes; the hard work, the sweat, the labors of love, and did what any great artist would do: She went back to work. She is currently finishing up a new record in Los Angeles with partner Tim Sonnefeld that she can say is all her own. Another Galaxy is due for release in January of 2021, and the first single, “Star Crossed Lovers” is already released.
Sharon continues the journey unabated: a sojourn of the soul, rooted in her honest yet bare heart, beating for all the world to see.
