Sherman Downey & The Ambiguous Case
Sherman Downey & The Ambiguous CaseSherman Downey and The Ambiguous Case is a party folk band from Newfoundland’s west coast. With an energetic live show and an obvious love of what they do, they continue to grow a devout fan base – some even get songs stuck in their heads about muddy jackets, lost kittens and cheap suits.

In 2013, Sherman and the boys’ single, “Thick as Thieves,” was voted as the winner of CBC’s Searchlight Contest over hundreds of other hopefuls. The single is the first of many off the band’s sophomore album that will be released later this year. “Thick as Thieves” and songs from Honey for Bees have been in regular rotation on CBC programs locally, provincially and internationally. The boys have also received immense support from Rich Terfry (CBC Radio’s ‘Drive’) and Tom Power (‘Deep Roots’) who continue to expose the band’s music to an international audience.

Sherman’s first album, Honey for Bees, received multiple nominations for music industry awards in 2010 including MusicNL’s Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Rising Star/ New Artist of the Year and Folk Group of the Year as well as ECMA’s Group Recording of the Year and Rising Star Recording of the Year. The band was also Short-Listed on The Scope’s ‘Atlantis Music Prize’ list.

The boys’ performance resume includes the Vancouver Olympic Games, ECMAs (Moncton), Junofest (St. John’s), the Woodford Folk Festival (Australia), the International Folk Alliance conference (Memphis), and festivals like CMW, Indieweek, Blues Skies, and Stewart Park.
