Nick Sherman

Singer-songwriter Nick Sherman gives new meaning to “the voice in the wilderness,” or rather, the voice from the wilderness. While he still calls his rural birthplace of Sioux Lookout home, Sherman spent much of his youth out on the land, moving between his hometown, the small First Nation community of Weagamow Lake, and his family’s trapline onNorth Caribou Lake.

Nick is not only inspired by his memories of those early trapline sounds—the timeless hymns of celebration and lamentation on his reserve—but by great songwriters including William Elliott Whitmore, Ray LaMontagne, Sam Cooke, and Elvis Costello. His gentle voice is rich with honesty and the vitality of youth, but tempered with worldweariness, atop his strong, simple guitar. Nick’s new album, Knives & Wildrice, is inspired by the lives of people in hiscommunity, his own upbringing, and life experiences as he now raises his own family in Canada’s north. His Indigenous heritage resonates with soul-brushing candour as he sings the boreal forest blues.
