Jerry Jean is an NYC based award-winning songwriter, producer, and musician.
His 2017 LP, Do We Reach Home, explores the strains of modern living, human connection, and renewal. Cinematic and grand, Jerry weaves together haunting melodies and searching lyrics over a warm, piano-driven backdrop adorned with lush strings. The songs revolve around the search for home in a chaotic modern world. The LP was recorded with live instruments for a classic, chamber pop sound. Do We Reach Home is an everyman’s journey through longing, disillusionment, and hope. In 2017 so far, it has been honored by the International Songwriting Competition, The Global Peace Song Awards, The Hollywood Music in Media Awards, and the Global Music Awards.
Jerry draws from an eclectic mix of progressive pop, electronic, rock, and classical influences. Fighting for You, Jerry’s self-produced and independently released EP broke into the iTunes Top Albums chart upon release. The title track of his second EP, Your Love, is a 2014 International Songwriting Competition winner, chosen from 18,000+ songs from 100+ countries. “Enough,” a song written in response to racial profiling, is a 2016 Global Peace Song Awards Finalist.
A multi-instrumentalist (piano, violin, laptop) and singer, Jerry has performed in venues as varied as Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, MTV Unplugged, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the United Nations, and The Bitter End. Jerry has performed with artists spanning Florence + The Machine to Boyz II Men.
