Biography

The Once Homeless Performer, Who Was Encouraged Over The Years By Everyone From Brian McKnight To Renowned Country Producer Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley, Josh Turner), Is About To Impact AC and Hot AC Radio With His Pop/Rock Debut Album’s Uplifting Title Track, “Shine”

Back when singer/songwriters still thought that being signed to a major label was the ticket to fame and fortune, Sharif Iman (www.sharifiman.com) was brought to Nashville by renowned country music producer Frank Rogers, soon after Rogers heard the up and coming performer at a small club in Myrtle Beach, S. C., Rogers, who would go on to helm projects by Nashville greats like Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley and Trace Adkins, told Iman he had the “X Factor” and could someday be a major pop/rock artist. With Rogers’ hands-on assistance, Iman honed his songwriting craft and quickly landed a co-publishing deal with EMI, signing him as a writer while helping him develop as a rock artist.

A dream come true, right?

Not quite. When the group who signed him moved on from EMI, so did Iman, in his own direction, packed with valuable lessons, a strong direction, and a determined will to outlast anyone.

Other publishing deals came his way, but he was dissatisfied with these arrangements. The music industry was shifting fast during this period and Indie labels and artists were rising in the changing tide. Iman realized this was his time to stay free of contracts, reflect, re-power his tools, write, watch and wait…for his opportunity to shine.
