SHERILYN is a Singer-Songwriter, Producer, Podcast Host, and Music Career Coach based in Cayucos, CA.  

From a young age, Sherilyn got her start writing songs while singing in church, cheerleading for football games, and studying classical, jazz, and pop music in school. Known as “the girl with the big voice” with incredible stage presence, she turned down a full college scholarship and opportunity to audition as flautist for the Chicago Civic Orchestra when she got her first record deal in her early twenties. Her powerhouse vocals and captivating stage presence soar through her songs in a way that is memorable and moving. 

Signed to a CCM label (Vineyard Music/Varietal Records) 1998-2008 and gaining some momentum on Christian radio (under her artist name and then married name at the time - Sheri Keller & Sheri Carr), she enjoyed a decade touring as a solo artist through the U.S., Australia, Italy, Switzerland, and Brazil. Continuing to evolve as an artist, entrepreneur, and creative, she eventually set out independently as pop alternative artist SHERILYN in 2011, launching her own record label & publishing company, Starboard Stride.

After settling on the Central Coast of California several years later, Sherilyn built a home studio where she loves to write and record her own music, as well as help other artists learn how to RECORD, RELEASE, & PROMOTE their music professionally. Through video courses and online coaching, she guides them through artist development, building their brand & catalog, expanding their music industry knowledge, creating revenue streams, and teaching them how to promote and pitch their music for more “major league” opportunities - such as sync licensing.

Taking all of her experience from over 20 years in the music industry as both a signed and independent artist with 10 sync agencies/publishers who currently rep her music for placements in TV/ads/film/podcasts, Sherilyn founded her international online company in January 2022 - LIKE A PRO MUSIC COACHING. Since then, she has worked with over 125 independent artists from all over the world - US, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK - seeing some of those artists already starting to get features on Spotify Editorial playlists and land placements in TV, ads, and film.

In her spare time [insert laughter here] Sherilyn loves swing dancing, baking, beach walks, interior design, and hosting her podcast, Have You Seen Me Now. The premise of her podcast is a product of her own journey.....that it's never too late to re-invent yourself.
