You'd be forgiven for pegging Sarah Sharp as an eccentric import. Odd time signatures, obscure arrangements and detailed scene descriptions make Fourth Person a good match for the European venues she traipsed through last month, but the soulful turns of her songs give her Austin address away. Jazzy romps like "Blame It on the Night" smooth out Sharp's high voice, but when she lets loose on the sarcastic "Finally," it stays just perfectly short of shrill for the album's most dramatic delivery. Recently, Sharp has taken on a second career as a music supervisor for independent movies like Drop Dead Sexy. The new job may keep her busy between her frequent tours, but it's her intricate songs and voice that are ever so slowly taking over the world.
