Sherman Andrus

Sherman Andrus


Sherman Andrus started his musical career in 1963 singing lead with Andrať Crouch & The Disciples. He remained with the Disciples until 1970.

Andrus then attempted to launch his own group which never really got off the ground. In 1972, he got the call to join the Imperials where he alternated with Terry Blackwood between lead and baritone. Over the next few years, they recorded a popular cover version of "Gospel Ship" as well as several songs now considered to be Imperials classics including "More Than You'll Ever Know," "Spread A Little Love Around," "No Shortage," and "My Child Welcome Home."

In 1976, Andrus left the Imperials to become vice president at Shalom Records. He also performed as a soloist during this period, releasing an album titled Soon Coming.

In mid-1977, Andrus and fellow Imperials alumnus Terry Blackwood formed a contemporary group called Andrus Blackwood & Company. This group recorded and performed for the next ten years. After Andrus Blackwood & Co. dissolved in 1986, Andrus began focusing on solo work.

In 2004, Andrus reunited with the 1970s Imperials lineup (Terry Blackwood, Jim Murray, Armond Morales, and Joe Moscheo) as well as the present-day Stamps Quartet to record a CD titled The Gospel Side Of Elvis for Daywind Records.
