Performing more that 250 shows last year, Sharif has built a solid fan base throughout the US and beyond.
For his latest record, 'Surrogate Lovers,' Sharif recruited members of Whiskeytown, Jason Mraz & David Gray. Two songs were soon picked up by the popular rock compilations "Station Break"&"Decent Xposure" while other songs have been featured in hit TV shows like "South of Nowhere" & "No Reservations."
