Roots Music Canada review of Wreckhouse by Alison Corbett

Posted on May 25, 2018

At the southern end of the Long Range Mountains in Newfoundland, there is a stretch of land where hurricane force winds known as ‘Wreckhouse winds’ occasionally blow to gusts of 200 km per hour. Award-winning Newfoundland folk/country singer Sherry Ryan takes the title of her latest album, Wreckhouse, from this area of the island notorious for blowing trains right off their tracks. Go to Roots...

Review- Fred’s Records

Posted on May 25, 2018

“Natural Law” comes galloping out of the gate to open the new Sherry Ryan CD, “Wreckhouse”. In fact there’s a rockin’ 60’s vibe driving the engine that gives spark to this new collection of songs. As a lyricist, Sherry is a straight-shooter, nothing dolled up in symbolism or poetic ramblings. She assesses lessons learned and simplifies her realizations and synopsis in measured words; the mark of...

Review of Wreckhouse Bob Mersereau’s Top 100 Canadian

Posted on May 25, 2018

Newfoundland’s Sherry Ryan kicks off a tour tonight to launch her latest album, called Wreckhouse. The singer-songwriter is a deceptively strong lyricist, her songs uncluttered and spare, and she doesn’t throw around complexities and verbiage. But the imagery is powerful and the metaphors large. In Cool And Clear, she compares a relationship that has ended to the difference between...

Review of Wreckhouse by Sandy May, The Overcast

Posted on May 11, 2018

It’s been 6 years since her last album, Sister of Mine and a lot can happen in the span of 6 years: births, deaths, marriages, divorce, etc. Wreckhouse is Sherry Ryan’s 4th album, and like each previous release, the songs on Wreckhouse are a soundtrack for all of life’s twists and turns, heartaches and hurrahs. Through it all, Ryan’s warm voice blankets you with comfort, even if you want to...

Music Video: Stop the Trains

Posted on Nov 4, 2016

Here’s a video I made with Flower Hill and the railway pensioners down at the Railway Museum here in St. John’s this past summer.  My father, Jim Ryan, helped me write the song and make the video. He loved to tell stories about working on the railway and I always loved this one about Lauchie MacDougall and the Wreckhosue winds.
