Sarah Sharp

Writer & Musician

I’m a freelance writer and musician from London. I fell in love with Sheffield and its sense of creative community while housesitting here in 2014 – I haven’t looked back since. 

I make music as Tsarzi, penning lyric-driven ‘eccentric pop’ that often has a darkly humorous side. In 2017 I won the South Yorkshire Filmmakers’ Network 2Weeks2MakeIt competition for my music video ‘Ornaments’, best described as a mash-up of Warhol & Coronation Street. My debut album Last Decade of Lovecame out in September 2018, receiving very positive reviews & some 6Music radio play. Pink Wafer named in one of their top 10 albums of the year

Prior to this I was involved in lots of different bands & projects, including The Unsung, which won Best Spoken Word show at the Buxton Fringe in 2017 & continues to receive much critical acclaim. I also directed a music video for our track ‘Maybe You’ll Go Out Tonight’, which made the 2018 longlist for the Out-Spoken Poetry in Film award.  

As a writer I have experience writing reviews, articles, interviews and blogs for a range of publications, most recently Now Then. Topics I frequently cover include: music, theatre, art, film and feminism.  

Before going freelance earlier this year I worked as a corporate copywriter for the law firm Irwin Mitchell. This honed my ability to distil complex information on a range of topics into succinct, user-friendly web copy. I am adept at working with designers and SEO experts to create content that engages the reader and encourages click-through.     

I’ve also worked with a number of smaller companies, including sporting brands, fashion brands, and Sheffield’s own Union St. I always enjoy working with people to understand their goals and help them achieve their personal vision for their brand.

Collaboration is a huge part of what I do and I’m thrilled to be working with a number of different artists at the moment on various projects. Some of these include: 

I'm very interested in working with people from different disciplines, such as filmmakers, poets, visual artists, performance artists, and theatre practitioners.
