Pint-sized Sharon O’Neill was one of many musicians from New Zealand who made Australia their base during the 1980s.
Hailing from Nelson in the South Island of New Zealand and starting out in a high school folk group, Sharon already reigned supreme in her home country and had cleaned up most of the top female awards.
She introduced herself to Australian audiences when she supported Boz Scaggs in 1980 and did a few performances of her own.
She released some fine singles including Words (1979), How Do You Talk To Boys? (1980), Waiting For You (1981) and Maxine (1983) and the albums This Heart This Song (1979), Words (1980), Maybe (1981), Foreign Affairs (1983), Danced In The Fire (1987) and Edge of Winter (1990).
