Sherdonna is an American singer-songwriter and hymn writer who integrates thought-provoking lyrics with a rich, soulful, folk sound. Her writing is honest and without pretense, weaving together beautiful melodies and textures. Her voice is pure and soothing, and her songs speak to the heart of the human experience.
Originally a classically trained clarinetist, Sherdonna took up the art of songwriting after a friend gifted her with a guitar in college. Though her first love was the symphony and instrumental music, she was inspired by the music of Sarah McLachlan and resonated with her songwriting style and lyrics. Since 2012, Sherdonna has independently recorded and produced 3 full length albums and a Christmas EP while working and raising 3 sons. She is currently working on songs for her 4th album, and her newest endeavor is a blog called, “Through the Haze,” where she writes about being a woman in process.
Whether in a theater, coffee shop, home, or a church, Sherdonna is consistent as a performer and brings honesty and vulnerability to each unique setting. Some of her favorite places she has performed is the Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis and her local coffee shop across the street from her house.
Sherdonna lives in St. Louis with her husband, Todd, and is looking forward to the fall when she becomes a grandmother.
