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.
Born and raised in Middle Cove, Newfoundland, Canada, Sherry’s career has been storied, with acclaim and accolades from MusicNL, Exclaim!, CBC and audiences nation-wide. Once named “St. John’s answer to Lucinda Williams” and compared to John Prine for “reeling you in with her heartfelt stories and a hint of humour,” Sherry’s rich vocal style is described as “so good—so distinct—it’s absolutely unforgettable” (Exclaim!). Sherry’s 2018 release, Wreckhouse, included the celebrated single “Stop the Trains,” voted Best Song in the Province (The Overcast), and featured in festival-favourite film An Audience of Chairs.
Though trains, roads, and travel frequently cross into her Americana-infused songs, Shout for More proves Sherry is far from road-weary. With fresh energy and new stories to tell, Sherry Ryan is poised to win hearts and get boots tapping.
‘Her voice is so good – so distinct – its absolutely unforgettable’
‘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.’
‘As a lyricist, Sherry is a straight-shooter, nothing dolled up in symbolism or poetic ramblings’
‘St. John’s answer to Lucinda Williams’
‘The heart of Gillian Welch and the potential legacy of Ron Hynes at her feet’
“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.”
