Sherman Ewing’s music is his own unique mix, suggesting a maturity, despite his 40 young years, that comes from development of a multi-dimensional sound. That sound can be traced back to his native Minnesota, a virtual rock and roll holy land of the Midwest. His sound is also seasoned through two decades of experience as a street wise singer/songwriter in New York City.
Early on, Ewing was influenced by the unrefined and direct sounds of fellow Minnesotans, The Replacements and Husker Du, as well as England’s punk music. Sherman’s solo career began in 2002 when he teamed up with producer Godfrey Diamond (Lou Reed, Aerosmith, Billy Squier). Ewing and Diamond’s collaborative chemistry was immediate, resulting in the writing and recording ofnhis first album, “Bluemoon.” Read more on his official website HERE.
His latest offering is the 4-track EP, "Cross My Broken Heart", set for release in early summer, 2015.

Marty's review: The 4 tracks on Sherman Ewing's new EP combine several elements of roots music that range from folk to rock, country and blues. "Cross My Broken Heart", "Wild River" are 2 standout folk-rock efforts, "Lonesome Soldier" is a heartfelt ballad with a roots shuffle and "Spiritual Awakening" is and all-out rocker that pumps out a driving beat and searing blues guitar licks. With vocals that are crisp and clear, a songwriting talent that is seasoned and professional and a tight knit production that is polished but remaining roots focused, this EP can only further Sherman's career and gain him even more attention.
Relix Magazine describes Ewing as, “a triumphant storyteller with a soulful brand of pop-friendly rock that, at times, channels a sound similar to early folk-period Dylan with an upbeat twist.”
