Watch: Grammy-winner Isaiah Sharkey performs exclusively for Live

The jazz-fusion virtuoso offered up an exclusive performance for day 1 of the virtual guitar show Live: Jazz-fusion virtuoso, Grammy winner and sideman to both John Mayer and D’Angelo, it’s easy to understand why Isaiah Sharkey is regarded as one of the best session players in the business.

Sharkey sat down to show off his expressive and fluid guitar style in this intimate at-home performance, exclusively for Live.

Performing a stripped back rendition of his original composition ‘Believe’ on a bright red 80s Squier Strat, the virtuosic guitar player showcased his great falsetto work alongside his impeccable guitar chops.

Released as part of his 2017 long player LOVE.LIFE.LIVE, ‘Believe’ has become a mainstay of Sharkey’s live performances, swiftly moving between groove-laden R&B rhythms and intricate jazz interludes.
