Sherman Ewing – Opening by Jon Christopher Allen
March 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm | $10

Relix Magazine calls Sherman, “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.”
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 which he experienced while attending an all boy’s boarding school in England. After prep school in England, Ewing attended Columbia University in New York City where he first met John “Jojo” Hermann, known now for Widespread Panic (and Missing Cats).
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 of, “Bluemoon.”
