Denise Sherwood has announced her debut album, This Road. Set for release on On-U Sound and Rvergreen Recordings, This Road will comprise of eleven tracks and sees her delve into her personal history, having spent her teenage years at her father Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Studio.
“When I made music for EPs, sometimes I felt restricted,” Sherwood explains. “I would think too much about creating the moments on the dancefloor I love – seeing visions of ecstatic people hugging, I didn’t give myself free reign to express all of myself. Writing an album made me feel free of all this because it seemed like an open-ended project. I could just keep creating until I felt like stopping”.
Drawing influence from drum n bass, dub, reggae, trip-hop, and jungle the record features contributions from Adrian Sherwood Mala, Lee “Scratch” Perry and more.
