Taking Your Land 2:440:00/2:44
“a brilliant slice of Canadian folk pop, songs to make your toes tap and lyrics to lift your soul...”
Guitar, saxophone, huge songwriting and a voice that won him a Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Singer, Ian Sherwood Brings The Light to every stage he stands on. A born story teller and a constant creator, his music dances the line between folk and pop. His live performances thrive on intimacy. Whether it's a theatre show or large festival stage, his persona is irresistible and completely destroys fourth walls.
When not touring the UK, Australia, the US or all across Canada, Sherwood produces for other artists as well as for theatre, film and television. He recently won a Robert Merritt award for Outstanding Original Score for the play “Tompkinsville”. He has been named Best Male Artist of the Year by the International Acoustic Music Awards and was twice named the Music Nova Scotia Musician Of The Year. Bob Mersereau of CBC Radio, Fredericton described him as “... a natural performer who entertains as much with his wit and stories as with his songs.”

"Everywhere To Go is a record which deserves be heard far and wide. Despite starting out as a saxophonist, acoustic folk is Ian Sherwood’s forte and it’s something he does rather well."
“This latest release from a poetic wordsmith... has struck an egalitarian balance between aiming for the pulse and penetrating the heart.”
