Newfoundland’s Sherry Ryan makes her Carleton début with an album release show at The Carleton on Sunday, October 23rd. Show time is 7 PM and tickets are $20 + HST
On Shout for More, her fifth full-length album, Sherry Ryan charts a new chapter in her life with a luminous collection of songs that glows like stained glass. Blending folk-pop sensibility with country and Irish-Newfoundland roots, Sherry affirms her place as one of Atlantic Canada’s best-loved singer-songwriters. Her pure voice adorns lush arrangements—closely crafted with producer Mark Neary—like a floral crown, carrying the soul of each song straight into the listener’s heart, whether she is looking to the future, glancing back at the past, or taking stock of what falls in between.
‘Stop the Trains is a toe-tapping, honky-tonk shuffle in the vein of Lefty Frizzell and Hank Williams, and it’s got all the hallmarks of a country classic in the making.’ The Overcast
‘As a lyricist, Sherry is a straight-shooter, nothing dolled up in symbolism or poetic ramblings’ Fred’s Records
‘St. Johns’ answer to Lucinda Williams’ UP Magazine
‘The heart of Gillian Welch and the potential legacy of Ron Hynes at her feet’ Chart Attack
‘Like Prine, she reels you in with her heartfelt stories, a hint of humour and the vocal power to command attention to her every word.’ Blurt
