Biography

Sherman is the alterego of the Belgian singersongwriter Steven Bossuyt. Starting off with just the need to fulfill his urge to write songs, Sherman ended up recording some demos with good friend, and now drummer of the band, David Demeyere.
After playing several live solo shows in both Belgium and the UK, Sherman decided to take it to another level and moved to London, where he rented a 12 square meter flat and served coffee in a bakery/coffeeshop in Hampstead.
After hours he kept on writing songs and playing solo shows at several venues all over town, from 'Enterprise' and 'Dublin Castle' in Camden to 'Spice of life' in Soho and 'Powers bar' in Kilburn. After trying every new song he wrote in front of a live audience and receiving a good response, plans were made to record a single.
First single 'On your side' was picked up by BBC radio and to support it Sherman was asked to do an acoustic session on BBC Radio 2's Janice Long show.
Backed up by David Demeyere on drums, Timothy Jacobs on bass and Gerben Hemelsoen on guitar, Sherman was ready to hit the road as a full band and enjoyed a busy festival season.
Meanwhile Sherman released a second single 'Days Go By' in Belgium, which also proved an instant radio hit, and is finalising recordings for his debut full length album. A European release of this debut album is scheduled for the spring of 2012.
