Early life

Born in Carbonear, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada, Sharpe attended Ascension Collegiate, Bay Roberts, where he excelled at music and geography. When not composing music, he said his pastimes included spending time with his pets and playing basketball, volleyball and badminton.

Canadian Idol

Sharpe was the runner-up on Canadian Idol in season four, and lost the closest Idol race to date to Gatineau native Eva Avila by just 131 000 votes out of nearly 4 million cast.

Post Idol

When asked during a CTV interview what one person he would like to meet, Sharpe named Selena Quintanilla Perez: "She put a lot of work into what she loved and she didn't get to express her talent." [1]

When asked what song he is touched by the most, he replied "You're Beautiful by James Blunt, because it reminds me of my music teacher Heather Macdonald, who died at the young age of 28." [2]

He also shared the stage with music producer David Foster, in 2008. He performed his own rendition of Angels, with a children's choir.

Sharpe has reportedly auditioned for a role in the TV series Glee with the song "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going."

He now lives in Newfoundland.
