Sharon "Share" Pedersen (now Ross) (born: Sharon June Howe on March 21, 1963 in Glencoe, Minnesota) is the bass player of the reformed female hard rock band, Vixen.[1]

Share joined Vixen in 1987, replacing Pia Maiocco, and remained with the band until 1991. After leaving Vixen, she formed the supergroup, Contraband, releasing only one album. When Vixen reunited in 1997, she had no interest in coming back, as she was playing in her husband's band, Bubble.

In 1999, Share and her husband Bam Ross co-wrote the songs on Jesse Camp's debut album, Jesse & The 8th Street Kidz.[2]

Bubble won Song of the Year in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2000 with their song, Sparkle Star. It is also featured in the film starring Daryl Hannah, Dancing at the Blue Iguana.

In 2003, Share toured with her husband Bam's band, The Dogs D'Amour, and opened up for Alice Cooper on a European Tour.

In 2006, Share became the host and co-producer of the video podcast Rock n Roll TV, an online show which features up-and-coming punk/garage/rock bands and rock news.[3]

In 2012, Share reunited with her former Vixen bandmates, Roxy Petrucci and Janet Gardner, along with Gina Stile to form a new band originally known as "VXN" and now using simply their names as the band name of JanetShareRoxyGina (or JSRG for short). The band began performing shows in late 2012 and are going on tour with the Monsters of Rock cruise in 2013. Late in 2013 JRSG changed their name back to Vixen in accordance with the wishes of founding member and guitarist Jan Kuehnemund who was unable to be part of the reformed band due to her battle with cancer and shock passing on 10th October 2013.

Recently, Ross published a book of hip knitting designs, Punk Knits published by Stewart, Tabori and Chang.
