Sherman Downey and his band, The Ambiguous Case, released their first CD, “Honey for Bees” early in 2010. Since then, the boys have been working hard and turning heads in the folk industry, sharing stages with bands like Elliott Brood, Tom Fun Orchestra, Amelia Curran, The Divorcees, Sarah Harmer, Kathleen Edwards, Ron Hynes and Julie Doiron.
In February, Sherman and the band were invited to showcase at the Vancouver Olympic Games. Shortly thereafter, they found themselves playing at the 2010 Juno celebrations in St. John’s, NL. Songs from “Honey for Bees” have been getting heavy rotation on national CBC radio including plays on highly revered programs such as Drive and Deep Roots, and feature length recordings are already available on CBC’s Concerts On Demand. Craig Norris of CBC Radio 3 described Sherman Downey and The Ambiguous Case as “one of the highlights” of his ECMA experience this year and awarded their track “Church Mouse” the coveted CBC Radio 3 “Track of The Day” just days later as a wink and a nod to the band’s progress this year.
Armed with charming melodies, toe-tapping rhythms and a story to tell, “Honey for Bees” will have you singing shamelessly into a brush in front of your mirror. For all the latest, visit www.shermandowney.ca
