He got his professional break by Motown Records founder, Berry Gordy's former wife, Raynoma Liles Gordy.
Sherrick was a member of the group, Kagny & the Dirty Rats. The group released one album and recorded a song for the movie "The Last Dragon." They were later dropped from Motown and Sherrick developed an addiction to cocaine which caused complications with his career.
By 1988, Sherrick disappeared from the music scene and plans for a follow-up album never materialized. There were rumors that claim his missing years had something to do with his cocaine addiction.
In 1993, Sherrick married to Lynne Conner-Smith and they had three children. In 1999, Sherrick resurfaced, putting together some new music, but sadly on January 22, 1999, he passed away of unknown causes in Los Angeles, California at the age of 41.
