Thursday Tune - Black Magic Woman


Sharon Aguilar (born 1986) is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter. She toured with 2NE1 in 2012, and has both founded and performed with several other groups.

She played lead guitar and violin with Scarlet Fever, the all-female backing band that toured with Cee Lo Green during 2010 and 2011. She and varying members of Scarlet Fever have performed with other front women as in 4D, No Salt, and Miss President.

Aguilar began playing violin at the age of 12, and played first violin with the Dade County Honors Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. She taught herself guitar and mandolin during high school.  She has performed in Miami at open mic venues with her sister Kristen Borrego (bass guitarist), Erika Coromina, and others. 

When she started playing guitar, Aguilar gravitated toward the classic rock her father listened to at home. A family video shows her headbanging to Led Zeppelin's "In My Time of Dying" in her playpen. She went with her father to see The Guess Who for her first concert as a teenager. Her father showed the film The Song Remains the Same, and she was inspired by watching Jimmy Page  to become a professional guitarist.
