For over 10 years Sherry Ryan has been winning hearts across the country as one of Newfoundland’s finest singer-songwriters. Drifting between country, blues, and folk, Sherry’s songs can lead you down a path of heartbreak, hope, and even humour in the space of a single chorus. Her highly anticipated fourth album, Wreckhouse, takes its name from the song ‘Stop The Trains’; a gem of a tune written by Sherry and her father, Jim. Her instantly recognizable voice radiates on this Newfoundland classic in the making, and the rest of Wreckhouse is no exception. Couple 10 heartfelt songs, with rich vocals, and phenomenal live off the floor performances from her band, and you have Sherry Ryan’s best work yet. She’s earned nation-wide attention, extensive radio play, and multiple music awards and nominations. A talent in the truest sense of the word, Sherry Ryan continues to ring out true and clear with her newest release.
‘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.”
