The best kept secret in music


"Eulene Sherman"

In the vein of gutsy gals like Sally Crewe, Eulene Sherman writes simple, satisfying melodies. Her voice can sound like a breathier Sheryl Crow, offsetting the quirkiness of lyrics like "All your chemicals/ All the time/ All in all/ Collide with mine." (Sinagra) - New York Times

"Eulene Sherman"

The hooky choruses of Eulene Sherman shine like sunbeams cutting through dark clouds. The pop rocker’s latest release, Bicycle, is a great vehicle (pun intended) for her catchy melodies and her strong, Avril Lavigne–style vocals.
Her lyrics project strength as well. Even her songs of longing express a plan of action more than sadness. On “Don’t Wake Me Up,” she sings “Like a fairy tale escape / I could pick you up and fly away.” On “Multiply,” she delievers a pick-up line that could be either a scientist’s dream or a vague drug reference: “All your chemicals / All the time / All in all / Collide with mine.”
The entire album rocks out with bass, drums, acoustic and electric guitars. Wurlitzers, Hammond B3 organs, cello and violin add to the aural variety while Sherman’s powerful vocals keep the sunshine pouring in.

The best music being made today has a hybrid quality. This is the first line in Eulene Sherman's short but cool biography. And I couldn't agree more. And this girl has sure succeeded with this effort. This is a damn cool album you're reading a review about. Imagine a mix between cool soft jazz a'la Norah Jones, the Bottrill era of Sheryl Crow, a more ordinary female singer songwriter touch a'la Jann Arden mixed with a few ounces of Emmylou Harris Lanois album and we're in the garden of Eulene's music. I'm very impressed. The album opens up with "Only For You" which starts with just some cool rhythms and her intimate voice and develops into a single that could be a huge hit on the radio. Second out "Don't Wake Me Up" continues to deliver with a very smooth production. A really nice tune. Third out "Multiply" smells the legendary debut album with a young and horny Sheryl Crow. Fifth out "Stay" is like an electrified and modern produced Norah Jones tune with a refrain that develops into a more modern pop tune. And there are more on the album in the same caliber. I'm very impressed. Her voice is really a pearl, and the production signed by Angelo (Kings of Leon, Patty Griffin and more), Caleb Sherman and her, doesn't have much more to wish for and the song writing is solid as a rock. It smells a major label contract a long way for this girl. A big bravo to her and her music.

"Eulene Sherman - Bicycle"

It's been awhile since I've found anything of interest in the contemporary pop or rock scene. There is just so much music that is generic in nature that the artists and their music seem to blend together to form a sort of "stew" of mediocrity and sameness. Now, having had my listen, let me be rightly understood - this "Bicycle" is a gem! A genuine find, definitely desert island caliber. From start to finish Eulene Sherman's musical voice enchants, delights, and draws the listener along her wonderfully emotional, but sensible, musical adventure. Eulene sings her songs with a conviction and soulfulness that is honest and true to the core, that cuts through and rises above the "stew" of the mediocre, something rare amoungst the crowd of similar artists. You'll not find a single weak track here, either. Equally (and pleasantly) surprising is the instrumentation of Caleb Sherman (twelve brothers?) and the artist known only as Angelo. Listen to the wonderful sound of the upright bass in the intro to "Don't Wake Me Up", and the sparing, but effective use of violin and cello on several tracks. There are no cheesy orchestrations to dilute the subtle edginess of the songs. It is obvious that the self-described "three thieves" know exactly what they're doing in a recording studio. As a self-avowed elitist on all things musical, it's easy for me to find fault with, and take issue with much that I hear. However, "Bicycle" is one of those rare releases that I just can't find anything wrong with! Would that there were more like it. This is delightfully infectious music. It can definitely get under your skin, in your mind, and in you heart. So go ahead and see if you don't want to hop on Eulene's "Bicycle" and cherish the ride again, and again, and again. I'm confident that you'll find, as I did, that this bet is a sure winner.

"Eulene Sherman - Bicycle"

a Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Eulene Sherman has an interesting vocal style. And by "interesting" I mean in the best way possible. There is no mistaking her for anyone else, and that is a real refreshing thing in this business. There's nothing wrong with sounding like other artists, but it's always a boon to be really unique. It's party smoke, part purr…at times it sounds like she's just rolling around on the floor and that sound is coming out effortlessly. Really cool.

Her songwriting is unique as well. The songs while catchy, don't always go where you expect them too. They are probably too "alternative" to go on pop radio, but there might be some cooler stations out there that would give her a chance. I know that her sound would impress many listeners given the chance.

I honestly don't know any other way to describe her, but because she's on CD baby you can listen yourself (use the link on the left) and see for yourself. I think this is a great CD and one I will listen to for some time. -

Feeling a bit camera shy


The best music being made today has a hybrid quality. You can hear it in Outkast, you can hear it in Wilco. It's the stuff that sits-thankfully--beyond the grip of genre. Eulene Sherman lands squarely at the center of this new and crucial tradition. She makes songs that are in a zone where musical histories and the textures born of them move in out with a kind of grace that does sly work on the listener. Classic pop hooks sit beside lean, groove-based interludes. At times it punches-and at times it pulls. In both ways, it gets under your skin.

Eulene builds some big open musical spaces and then populates the landscape there, dropping in the people and their places, as if she's setting it up so she can move in herself. There's an intimacy to it all, like she's going to live next door to you when she gets there. Then she's gone. Which is to say, this is both the sound of things being built and the sound of people moving on. The mystery that makes the music of the Band some of our most haunted American song, the production that has made Emmylou Harris's last decade of recordings so moving: I hear traces of both these things in there.

If artist bios are meant to give us a few facts, spit out a little history, the best I can give you are rumors. She's supposed to live in New York but always seems to be out of town. When I left her a message, she didn't call me back. Everyone I know who has met her tells me they love her. She has twelve brothers. She worked with producers Angelo (Kings of Leon, Patty Griffin) and Caleb Sherman, both of whom have logged some good miles in the music-making mobile. I could go after more facts, but even a pile of them never means much. I'm happy with the music alone. Do yourself the favor, move in.
