Biography

Sheri Marie Ptolemy has always showed an interest in music; her mother would catch her singing to her dog and to the birds at her window when she was five years old. At the age of 11, she started voice lessons and began to teach herself piano and guitar. Immediately after she started composing her own songs which she performed at a local Home Church.

After convincing her Mom to bring her to Nashville to play the Legendary Blue Bird Cafe she decided she needed to go home and perfect her craft. She was homeschooled for a year and a half, so she could practice music as much as possible. In 2014 she recorded her first EP “Change Your Mind.”

Sheri studied Creative Writing and film at UBC and Music at Berklee College of Music so she could perfect her craft and learn who she was as an artist. Since graduating from both programs, Sheri has released four heart-felt singles, and filmed and edited her own music videos to accompany each song.

Sheri is currently in the studio recording an EP or all original music about the challenges and blessings of growing up in a small town and her experience with love and loss. It is set to release in the spring of 2024.
