Guitar, saxophone, ambitious song writing and a voice that won him a 2013 Canadian Folk Music Award—Ian Sherwood brings the light to every stage he stands on. A born storyteller and a constant creator, his music dances the line between folk and pop. His live performances thrive on intimacy; his persona is irresistible and it destroys the fourth wall.
Sherwood’s fifth studio album “Bring the Light”, produced by P.E.I.’s own Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant’s long-time producer), is filled with the same hooky cleverness that has endeared Sherwood to his audiences. This time, the deft work of Ledwell’s production brings Sherwood’s songs into a new dimension of beauty and depth.
