Jerry’s musical influences include the dynamic music of Uriah Heep and Dream Theater, the tenacity of Kiss and The Misfits, the story and lyrics of Snow Patrol and The Script, The simplicity of The Ramones and AC/DC, the amazing musical harmonies of The Eagles and Delta Rae, the vocal abilities of Journey and Boston, the uniqueness of People In Planes and The Cure, and the haunting styles of The Civil Wars and Adele.
The main theme that is heard through Jerry’s music is “struggle”. Jerry tells the struggle of relations, interactions, love, life and death. His songs are simple but strong, easy listening yet heavy, sad but hopeful. Jerry states “I’m an emotional animal. As a singer/songwriter I feel that it is my job to deliver my stories in a way that makes the listener feel what they are hearing.”
Soon, Jerry will be recording an acoustically driven adult alternative album at KSM Studio in Studio City California with producer Alex Kane (Richie Ramone/Antiproduct). Jerry looks forward to the recording and release of his new album. Until that time, Jerry will keep writing, recording his self produced EP’s and expanding his art. Jerry states “I am very excited to be touring the Midwest for my first time this year; I hope to see you all on the road!” You want music with heart, depth, and emotion?
"Overall The Same Game EP sounds like a songwriter working in earnest with a new (yet subtlety familiar) style. It is evocative of a rock band singer turning the page and toning it down. Harris’ is a recording project that brings to light some room to grow (we’re in that boat too), and some things we’ve all missed (gimme those harmonies and take me to the next realm) but also shows some serious promise. The guitar composition on the title track is understated, tasteful, and overall a stellar accomplishment." - fivecitiesmedia.com
