Jazz guitarist Scott Sherwood has been praised by critics and peers alike for the effortless fluidity, warmth and expressiveness of his sound. An innately melodic musician, his approach to guitar and composition has a purity and lyricism that is deceptively complex. His playing is rich and subtle, marked by genuine feeling. Sherwood lists responsiveness, empathy and communication as key elements to his musical collaborations as is evident in his new Art of Life Records release with pianist Bob Rodriguez, "Ripples".
Sherwood was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin but did not begin to study guitar seriously until his sophomore year of high school
