Sharky Sings Paul is a re-singing and expansion of Paul Simon's 1986 album Graceland. Sharky Sings Paul operates from the perspective of a fictional character, Sharky, in order to explore the imperfect-ness of personal, cultural, and historical memory. Utilizing repetition in a variety of media including sound, video, and found objects, this body of work dwells in the ambiguity of a combination of storgic relationships. Sharky is every person who has ever desired a Grace-land.

Amelia Colette Jones is originally from North Texas. She moved to St Louis in 2007 and received her Masters in Fine Art from Washington University in 2009. In 2010 she co-founded Sloup, a monthly soup dinner that generates funding for the arts, with Maggie Ginestra, a fellow artist, facilitator, and Sharky. Amelia has shown at Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts and Los Caminos in St Louis.
