Shery: Love Is a Ghost (El Amor es un Fantasma)
Family legend says she learned to sing before starting to speak, repeating for hours what she heard in the albums her mom played relentlessly night and day.
Shery is a new, passionate singer, songwriter and producer, gifted with a voice that captivates the senses and goes deep into the heart, who writes and performs inspired, organic songs distilled right from her soul, transcending the barriers of language.
Through her very own brand of melodic, sensual pop, she celebrates the shadows, ecstasies and, above all, the agonies of love.
Now, after two and a half years of relentless work, scoring in the process four #1 hits on the radio charts nationwide in her country, this young raising star from Guatemala has just released her debut album, El Amor es un Fantasma (in English: Love Is a Ghost), an irresistible torrent of 13 original songs, written entirely by herself, each alive with its own aura of melodic genius.
Two guest compositions complete the track list: one from Jose Luis Perales, the great Spanish romantico, and the other by singer / producer Francesco Sondelli, who also joins Shery for a soul-shaking duet in Italian. Other duets on the album feature Guatemalan vocalist Jorge "el Bardo" Alvarado, and Cuban-American singer Daniel Rene, former member of the popular Latin-Pop band Menudo / MDO.
The album includes a track mixed by legendary Eddie Kramer, producer of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Kiss, The Rolling Stones, Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana and David Bowie.
El Amor es un Fantasma is named after the first song ever written by Shery, a mellow, intimate track which scored 26 straight weeks in the Guatemalan Top 40, earned her a medal in the World Championships of the Performing Arts, in Hollywood, was selected one of the winners of the Unisong Songwriting Competition, and was finalist (among 15,000 entries from all over the world) in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, in New York.
Born an August 18 under the sign of Leo, Shery has shared stage with such Latin superstars as Enrique Iglesias, Chayanne, Christian Castro, Manuel Mijares, Miguel Bose and Aleks Syntek.
