About Shermanology
Ever since Shermanology burst onto the scene in 2009 with 3MIN2XPLN (3 Minutes To Explain) by Fedde le Grand & Funkerman (featuring Andy & Dorothy Sherman) their sound has been firmly rooted in EDM.



The talented siblings, who were joined in 2008 by cousin Leon Sherman, combine producing, songwriting and DJing with powerhouse vocals, and have enjoyed immense success with hits such as Blessed (with Avicii), Can’t You See (with GRX) and the worldwide smash Can’t Stop Me (their collaboration with Afrojack), The song was a top 10 hit single in The Netherlands and remained in the Dutch Top 40 for half a year; The trio have had numerous entries in the Beatport Top 100, with Who We Are and Living for the City, amongst others.



Shermanology have performed at clubs and festivals across the world with their energetic live sets; in 2013 they played to 165.000 people at Ultra Music Festival Miami, and to a staggering 180.000 people at Tomorrowland in Belgium; Other notable highlights include Mysteryland (The Netherlands/Chile), Sunburn Goa (India) and Storm Festival (China) where they played to tens of thousands of people. Shermanology have also wowed crowds at some of the world’s best clubs, such as; Mansion, Story, Mynt Lounge (Miami), Pacha (London/Ibiza/New York), Zouk (Singapore) and Amnesia (Ibiza)…delivering their musical waves and unique sound to all corners of the globe.



Before they joined forces, DJ/producer/singer-songwriter Andy Sherman had been working in the UK where he became Craig David's successor as vocalist with Artful Dodger, meanwhile Dorothy toured Europe as part of a Supremes tribute group, before her phenomenal voice was discovered by a series of DJ’s and producers. The Shermans inherited their musical talent from their father and uncle, who recorded classic soul records as The Sherman Brothers; their childhoods were drowned in sound, as their parents made them listen to artists ranging from Prince, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder to Bebe & Cece Winans and Luther Vandross.



Since Shermanology started out, the list of artists they have worked with is immense, everyone from Afrojack, Avicii, R3hab, Martin Garrix, Fedde Le Grand, Amba Shepherd, Cazette to Chocolate Puma have crossed paths with this talented threesome; and they have also been in the studio with Showtek and recorded a track called Wait For You with Dannic (who is signed to Hardwell's Revealed-label).



Andy Sherman explains, that “With every artist we work with now, we’re trying to meet each other mid-way, Each time we try to develop a new formula. Just because we did Can’t Stop Me with Afrojack, doesn’t mean we are going to do the same thing with others. We’re also looking to work with artists that are not in the EDM-scene. And I think that’s where our strength lies.”



Shermanology are evolving, both musically and formation-wise; In September, Andy and Dorothy announced that they are to continue as a duo, thereby returning to Shermanology’s original formation.



Shermanology’s collaboration with Swedish beat-makers Cazzette ignited a change in musical direction, “Cazzette are known for being the more musical guys on the EDM-scene” says Andy, “We wanted to work with them for some time; they’re with the same management as Avicii; so we went to Sweden and made two great tracks.”



Aiming for a more organic sound, Shermanology are developing shows with a three-piece band called Shermanology Sound System, which made its debut in front of more than 20.000 people at the new Sky City Festival in Amsterdam, and asides to that, they will of course also continue with their spectacular live DJ-sets.



Shermanology are keen on broadening their horizon, whilst at the same time honouring their musical heritage, as Andy says “We want to make our sound much more musical, with more vocal input and complete songs, but still in tune with what’s happening now in the house/edm scene.”



And so it is. With big beats and a heart of soul, Shermanology are reborn.
