After living in Los Angeles for most of her life, musician Maia Sharp moved to Nashville, where she settled in with the city’s songwriting community. She has collaborated with a diverse range of artists (Bonnie Raitt, Cher, Keb’ Mo’, Art Garfunkel, The Chicks), but the singer-songwriter-producer said some of her most meaningful work has been with Songwriting with Soldiers. “I take brief road trips two to three times a month to work for them,” Sharp said. “(It’s) an incredible organization that pairs a professional songwriter with veterans, active-duty service members, their family members … to turn their stories into songs.” Sharp’s latest album is “Mercy Rising.” She stays in touch with her fans at maiasharp.com, as well as Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MaiaSharpOfficial), Twitter (https://twitter.com/maiasharp) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/maiasharpmusic/).
