Sharon O'Neill was born on 23rd November 1952 in Nelson and started performing locally in the late 60's on acoustic guitar. She was a self taught musician who learned to play mainly by ear. Sharon started composing at an early age, mainly by putting chords to her poetry. Between these singles Sharon joined Jon Stevens on a duet called "Don't Let Love Go". This song reached number 5 in March 1980. How Do You Talk To Boys" came in September 1980. It is probably the only song during her album career that she performed, not to have been written by herself. CBS repackaged the "Sharon O'Neill" album to include this song and called it "Words". The single reached number 26 and also charted in Australia. Her third new album, "Maybe" came out in 1981

In 1972 O’Neill released a single on Terence O’Neill-Joyce’s indie label Ode Records – two covers – 'Love Song' (Elton John) b/w 'Birds' (Neil Young). Once the singer settled in Wellington, Sharon O’Neill did session work at EMI’s Lower Hutt studio and was asked to sing cover versions of foreign hits on the Ready to Roll chart show that taped at TVNZ’s Avalon Studios. When John McCready opened CBS Records' first NZ office in 1978, he was keen to develop a New Zealand roster of recording artists. Although Sharon O’Neill had been around the local music scene for a few years I was not aware of her. Watching a talent contest show, I came across Sharon singing ‘Luck’s On Your Table’. I thought she was just fantastic and was surprised that her wonderful song and performance only got her only 3rd place.
In 1979 Jon Stevens arrived from nowhere (actually Upper Hutt) to score the first of two consecutive number one singles: 'Jezebel' and 'Montego Bay'. Keen to develop a roster of local acts, Stevens' label CBS paired him with their first local signing, singer/songwriter Sharon O'Neill. The result was ballad 'Don't Let Love Go'. Stevens and O'Neill were both soon living in Australia, where Stevens formed rockers Noiseworks, and O'Neill got into extended contractual battles with the Australian arm of CBS. More information.
