DOWNLOAD: Nick Sherman – “Drag Your Words Through”

I recently had the pleasure of hearing Ojibway singer-songwriter Nick Sherman, from Sioux Lookout, Ontario, perform live, and I’m thrilled that this week’s RPM download is a track from his brand new album, Drag Your Words Through.

Sherman’s poetic and honest lyrics, paired with his warm, rich voice had the room near tears when he performed, and luckily the depth and emotion that he so beautifully conveys live is captured well on all the tracks of Drag Your Words Through. Described by Sherman as music rooted in contemporary folk, the sentiments on the album span the best and worst days of four years in his life – so hearts are moved not only to sadness, but to smiles too. Be sure to check out the album at www.nicksherman.ca and get started by downloading the title track here.

    I love Nick’s music, his lyrics are thoughtful, intelligent and beautiful. Good luck with the album.

  3. I encourage everyone to go see Nick Sherman live. During this song ppl from the crowd were called to come up and play the spoons, bang pot and other household instruments. I wanted so badly to go up… I’ll go to the next show for sure

    good I think Sherman is one of the most interesting young native american musician today. I am a fan of RPM, a canadian friend introduced me to this world and I love it. I’m from Italy and me and a lot of italian friends can’t wait for RPM newsletter, and for new (for us) incredible musicians to know.
    Great work. Thank you everybody.
    Dom & friends
