Following the success of his second album "Turn the Country On" with several charting songs, Jerry has spent a year "making his mark on the Canadian Country (and Indigenous) Music scene" (APTN) performing "high-energy, interactive" shows and gaining popularity with his name tied to acts such as Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan and Zac Brown.
Jerry's style of singing has been compared to "Garth Brooks, and Tim McGraw" (Grassroots News), and he continues to "expand his fan base with his upbeat rhythms and commanding stage presence" (Winnipeg Sun).
Growing up in the Parkland region of Manitoba, Jerry grew up embracing his Indigenous roots and learning how to hunt, fish, trap and live off the land. During these times Jerry also learned the importance of hard work, dedication and family. It was through his family that he learned to love music, and under the guidance of his grandmother he picked up the guitar and learned to play modern, and classic country music. This love of music drove Jerry to find opportunities perform in front of audiences so he could share the emotions, and passion he felt within music.
Jerry’s first single “Time” was recorded, and released through the support of Indigenous music programs. The opportunity and process to record an original song was all it took to light the fire within Jerry to pursue music as more than just a hobby. After 2 studio albums, several nominations at the WCMA’s, APCMA’s (where he won Best New Artist), and several charting singles (including several #1’s on the Indigenous Music Charts) it is safe to say that Jerry has no intentions of slowing down or stopping the music.
After spending time writing songs in Nashville with many successful writers, Jerry returned to find the perfect producer to record his new songs and emotions. He has currently released his 3rd project "Don’t Mind If I Do" with producer/singer/songwriter Troy Kokol, and is working on his 4th project "Trailers Rocking" set for release in 2020.
