Cosy Sheridan has been called “one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful singer-songwriters.”  She first caught the attention of national folk audiences in 1992 when she won both the Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk Award and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest, then released her critically acclaimed CD Quietly Led on Waterbug Records

Since then she’s released nine more CDs, taught songwriting at workshops and camps across the country and written a one-woman-show entitled The Pomegranate Seed – An Exploration of Appetite, Body-Image and Myth.  She is one of the most respected touring musicians on the folk circuit, appearing everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Jerry Lewis Telethon and the Philadelphia Folk Festival.

Her concerts are wide-ranging explorations: modern renditions of mythology (meet Hades the Biker), children’s stories woven into tales of modern adulthood, blues and gospel guitar and love songs for adults.  Her alter ego, Chlamydia, often appears with songs such as Botox Tango or Multiply Pierced.  The Cornell Folksong Society wrote:  “Sheridan is frank, feisty, sublimely and devilishly funny. She fuses myth with modern culture; Persephone with Botox.”

In 2011 when she released her tenth CD, The Horse King, The Chicago Examiner wrote: "You can't make it into double digits, and continue touring for twenty or so years, unless you know what you're doing, and do it well. Rarely do you find a CD where every song is memorable. It happens, just not often. It happens here."
