Scotty "Showdown" Sherman is an accomplished musician and a man who wears many hats, quite literally and figuratively. Scott is an accomplished singer/ songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and performer in his own right and one of Claude's earliest musical sympathizers. Scott assisted Claude in forging Clockwise' nascent musical beginnings and his deft bass playing can be heard on Clockwise' first release 'Accidentally on Purpose'. Scott rejoined the Clockwise line-up in 2012.
'Double Essence', is Scott's independent production company and the name of his record label, which is based in Toronto, Canada. Under this banner Scott has released two full-length CD projects: 'The Adventures of Scotty Showdown' and 'Scottmandu'. Other releases include '905 Blues' and 'Schloss'.
Scott has worked in a variety of genres from traditional folk and country to classic and punk-rock, as well as techno and ambient. He has recorded and performed with numerous notable Canadian musicians and bands including new-wave innovators 'Fictions', Soul and Motown revivalists 'Ten to Midnight' and current International Pop Overthrow bands 'Clockwise' and 'Luke Jackson'.
