Sharon White was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1954 and graduated from The West Babylon Senior High School in 1972.
The foundation for what would become a career of breaking glass ceilings was set in her school age years as a student at the New York School of Music studying percussion. Sharon grew up in a household filled with Jazz and Classical music. She received her first record player from her mother for her 4th birthday along with a copy of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody In Blue”.
Initially a radio disc jockey in NYC in the early 1970s, Sharon transitioned into a club DJ on the disco scene in 1973. She was the first woman to become a Billboard Reporter in the world. She held residencies at NYC’s The Saint, the former Fillmore East Theater and numerous historically relevant clubs like Studio 54, Limelight, Roxy, The Palladium, The River Club, Sahara, Sound Factory, The Pavilion (Fire Island) and the Warehouse. Sharon White would also be the only woman to ever play the legendary Paradise Garage. Having always centered her life around music, she also held National positions with RSO (Robert Stigwood Organization), Polygram /Island Records, Motown and Profile Records. After a hiatus in the mid-1990s, Sharon White has returned to DJing in NYC at Love, Santos Party House, and The New Pavilion at Fire Island Pines.
She retired in 1994, but in 2004 the yearning for the club scene became too big and Sharon is now actively DJ’ing and remixing once again. She moved to Baltimore in 2017 where she is building a home studio for her music projects and podcasts. She will be joining the on air staff at Sirius XM Satellite Radio in late 2019.
