Sherman Downey
Sherman DowneySherman Downey was recently named recipient of MUSICNL’s full length recording grant for 2009 and earned a spot in the top ten for this year’s regional Canadian Radio Star National Songwriting Competition. He’s also earned the attention of FACTOR and is turning heads in the folk industry with their support on his upcoming album. This year’s ECMA delegates hailed Sherman Downey as an artist to watch out for at next year’s conference and certainly, he continues to work toward being just that.

Sherman has often been compared to a young Paul Simon and undoubtedly takes it as a great compliment. His music is full of contagious rhythm and layered with hints of bluegrass. He likes to think that if Paul Simon and Alison Krauss secretly had a 70s child, it’d be someone he could have a tea with on the patio.

This summer, Sherman will release his first full length recording with “The Ambiguous Case”, a group of rogue musicians from Corner Brook on the Island of Newfoundland. At one time or another Sherman has found himself screaming in front of thousands of people as the front man in a touring punk band or busking love songs to waltzing couples in the underground tunnels of Asia. He’s taken from these extremes the ability to write and sing straight from his heart to your ear. Armed with charming melodies, toe-tapping rhythms and a story to tell, Sherman’s songs will have you singing shamelessly into a brush in front of your mirror.
