Meet Our Featured Member - Arthur Sherry


Arthur, from New York City, has been writing and playing songs since his teens. His Grandmother and Aunt were both published poets of the Beat era. Though he did not know either of them very well, they had a great influence on his love of songwriting. He cherished their books, reading them over and over again.

Arthur found the Collective and has become one of the Song Club meeting regulars along with performing in our Bitter End showcases.  His songs fill our Wednesday evening workshop sessions with his unique writing and definitive guitar stylings.  

The workshops helped him strengthen his songs and gain the confidence that shows in his new CD entitled "Missing You". He worked with one of his favorite writer/artists, Cliff Eberhart, to produce and add instrumental backup.    Everyone who has ever made an EP / CD know how much time, effort, passion and doubt goes into what will become a final product.  Cheers to Arthur for bringing this project to completion and sharing with all!   You can visit his website and find out more including ordering the CD by clicking HERE!

Look for our continuing series of workshops to be announced monthly!
