Named 2012 Male Artist of the Year by the International Acoustic Music Awards, Ian Sherwood mixes catchy melodies and heart-breaking stories with saxophones and pop/rock/jazz grooves to create music that has been described as “Traditional singer/songwriter style at its essence.” His live show takes you on a trip up a back-woods mountain, shooting sheriffs all the while singing “Amen!”
Equally at home in front of a large festival audience or a quiet house concert, his energetic stage show and honest presentation have quickly gained him recognition as a solid performer, lyricist and player and garnered him the Music Nova Scotia’s 2008 and 2010 Musician of the Year Award, and a nomination for the 2011 ECMA award for Male Solo Artist Recording of the Year.
“And Now The Fun Begins” is the latest release from this prolific broken-heart and if his fans speak the truth then it has truly captured the essence of what has made Ian so popular with his audience. Produced by fellow Singer/Songwriter Rob Szabo, ANTFB has the heart of Ian’s live show painted with the subtle style of Szabo’s producing brush. The fun has definitely begun!
