"Isaiah Sharkey has built an enviable reputation as a guitarist’s guitarist. His voluminous credits cover all genres, and when he’s not in the studio you’ll find him onstage, whether that means touring the world as a member of John Mayer’s band or jamming in a hometown Chicago club with Snarky Puppy.

The accolades from his colleagues are endless; his fanbase is widespread and dedicated. Still, you won’t find him on national magazine covers or “best of” lists – at least not yet – and he’s fine with that.

“I never chased being a celebrity guitarist, because I'm too busy liking what I do,” he says." - Guitar World,

Guitar virtuoso, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, educator and activist are just a few titles used to describe the musical powerhouse known as Isaiah Sharkey. Hailing from a musical family in Chicago, he picked up his first guitar when he was just 3 years old. Creating music came naturally to him and it wasn’t long before his family realized he had an irrefutable gift. By the age of 14, Sharkey was performing in clubs in Chicago and a few short years later he had piqued the interest of music industry giants like The Isley Brothers, D’Angelo, for whom he won his first Grammy Award, John Mayer, Patti LaBelle and many others. Blending his background in rock, gospel, jazz, R&B, blues, and funk, Sharkey has created his own original sound with an unmistakable dose of soul. His highly anticipated debut album Love.Life.Live. was released in September of 2017 and earned him the iHeart Radio "Artist of the Month" Award in November for his single “It’s a Shame” featuring DJ Jazzy Jeff. His sophomore album Love is the Key: The Cancerian Theme was released in June of 2019. During the Covid 19 pandemic, Sharkey wrote and recorded with a few of his colleagues including Cory Henry and Common. Sharkey is also recording new music for his latest release and gearing up for his U.S. and European tour this summer.
