Sherwood To Headline Starry Nights And Salty Seas Tour

Sherwood is preparing to embark on a two-month headlining U.S. jaunt on the Starry Nights & Salty Seas Tour with guests The Matches, The Higher, Houston Calls and We Shot the Moon.

Touring in support of their latest effort, A Different Light, an ode to SoCal music pioneers the Beach Boys, the San Luis Obispo four-piece is the first band signed to Myspace Records.

With nearly one million Myspace friends, the band headed south of the border to Mexico and set up shop beachside to keep those good vibrations rolling as they wrote and recorded new songs that eventually made up A Different Light. The result was a baker’s dozen worth of finely-tuned power-pop gems that run the gamut of styles and emotions. Singer Nate Henry’s emotive vocals stand out throughout the record, as does the band’s penchant for writing a good ballad (see “Home”), a hooky pop song (“Give Up!”), as well as a more introspective acoustic number (“For the Longest Time”). Recording with producer Lou Giordano (Taking Back Sunday, Sunny Day Real Estate, Husker Du), the polished, familiar Sherwood sound has been honed to pop perfection.
