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 on North Caribou Lake. Nick's deeply personal songs about “the best and worst days of the last four years,” are inspired by the lives of people in his community, his own upbringing, and life experiences as he now raises his own family in Canada’s north. In this way, his Indigenous heritage resonates with soul-brushing candour as he sings the boreal forest blues.
